On Monday, August 6th, 2018 Carl Green was critically injured while working with cattle on his farm, one of his favorite pastimes. After a vigorous fight, on Sunday August 19th at Huntsville Hospital, he left his earthly farm to tend the herd of God’s pasture. Carl’s passing befits his legendary life of storytelling, defeating many life challenges, physical hurdles and battles with cancer. Only to leave us with, yet, one more story of strength, endurance and perseverance.
