September 18, 1927 - January 17, 2018

Wallace Dale Green, 90, our beloved father, grandfather and great-grandfather passed away peacefully on Wednesday evening, January 17, 2018.

Dad was born September 18, 1927, in Ogden, Utah, to Wallace J. and Clarice Shaw Green. He graduated from Ogden High in 1945. After enlisting in the U.S. Army, he served at Ft. Lewis, WA. While home on leave, he proposed to his high school sweetheart, Betty Lane. They were married on May 15, 1946. They returned to live in Washington until dad was discharged from the Army. On January 8, 1976, their marriage vows were solemnized in the Ogden LDS temple.

Dad and Mom moved to Morgan, Utah, where he was self-employed as a consignee for Phillips Petroleum Co. for 25 years. He became a licensed agent for Farm Bureau, retiring in 1990. He was an active member of the VFW and American Legion. He and mom spent many happy times after retirement traveling across the country in their motorhome. He was an active member of the LDS church, serving in many callings including counselor in the bishopric. He and Mom served in the Chicago, Illinois, mission where they were able to influence many lives.
