Michael James Green

March 12, 1956 — June 26, 2023


Michael James Green, of McCook, NE, passed away at his home on June 26, 2023, at the age of 67.

Michael was born in North Platte, NE on March 12, 1956, to parents William and Arline (Kramer) Green. Michael grew up in North Platte, but the family moved to McCook, where he graduated from McCook High School with the class of 1974. Michael stayed in McCook where he was an HVAC technician.

Michael fell in love with Beverly Baxter, and they were married in Palisade, NE on Valentine’s Day in 1981. Together they raised three children: Cassandra, Matthew, and Nicole.

Michael was diagnosed with diabetes when he was seven, but even with this setback in life, it never stopped him from always going out of his way for others and trying to bring a smile to others’ faces. Michael was a history buff, an artist with sheet metal work, and a drummer for local bands. He enjoyed going on drives around town, supporting his grandkids in their events, telling very corny jokes and his family time was very important.

He was an active church goer at the First Congregation Church, permanent lifetime member of the McCook Masonic Lodge #135, and looked forward to ringing the bell for the Salvation Army around Christmas time.

Michael was preceded in death by his parents; an infant brother; and granddaughter, Serena Green.

Those left to celebrate Michael’s life is his wife, Beverly Green; son, Matthew (Dr. Tiffany) Green of Houston, Texas; daughters, Cassandra (Kenny McMurtrie) Harrison of Edinburgh, Scotland, and Nicole (Chris) Leyba of McCook, NE; brother Bill (Sally) Green of Richland, Washington; sisters, Barbara Lem of Eugene, Oregon, Peggy Mason of California City, California, and Patty (Tom) Howard of Beaverton, Oregon; grandchildren, William, Caleb, Alessandra, Lottie, Weston, Rory, Melody, Theseus, and Elias; and as well as numerous  extended family and friends.
