Poulsbo, WA

Don A. Green was welcomed into heaven on January 25, 2024. A devoted husband to Sue for 72 years, a father to 5 children, a friend to many, a lifelong outdoor enthusiast, and a dedicated Christian, Don left an indelible mark on those who had the privilege of knowing him.Born on the family farm in Kent, Washington on May 2, 1931, Don was blessed with a love for the outdoors, whether casting a fly on a favorite river, traveling to parts around the world with Sue, or hiking in the Olympic National Forest. He became a master woodworker in retirement, loved hand building and flying radio-controlled aircraft, and fishing.As a pioneer in the world of fly-fishing, Don was not just an expert angler; he was a true innovator, pushing the boundaries of tradition bringing the joy of fly-fishing to countless. His legendary contributions to the sport will be remembered for generations to come, as he inspired enthusiasts to see fly-fishing not just as a hobby, but as an art form. He started his career as Grizzly Fiberglass in Auburn, Washington in 1954 with $6,000 from Sue’s family inheritance, in a building built by his father. Demand for his fiberglass rod blanks grew, leading to merging with Fenwick Fishing Rods in 1968. After 10 years, he parted ways with Fenwick to focus exclusively on creating graphite flyrods and forming Sage Flyrods in 1980. His methodical engineering approach to creative problem-solving conquered challenge after challenge, all in the pursuit of designing the finest flyrods in the world. He inspired those in the field to be the spokespeople for his work, many becoming some of the best in the world.Beyond his outdoor interests, Don was deeply committed to his faith. His involvement with Christ Memorial Church, now known as Gateway Fellowship, and alongside former Pastor Al Munger was significant. Don played a pivotal role in acquiring the property and during the construction of the church building. His steadfast commitment to his Christian values permeated every aspect of his life.Don’s legacy is not just one of achievement and innovation but also of love, kindness, and a life well-lived. He leaves behind his wife Clara (Sue) Green, Poulsbo, Washington; sister Lynn Breda, Kent, Washington; daughters Marta (Greg) Bright, Poulsbo, Washington, and Donna Green, Poulsbo, Washington; and sons Dana (Lisa) Green of Bradenton, Florida, and Paul (Patti) Green, Poulsbo, Washington; and was preceded in death by son, Mark Green. Don was beloved grandpa to Megan (Chris) Toomey, Seattle, Washington, Hilary (Matthew) Chalk, Centennial, Colorado, Kyle Green, Portage, Indiana, Erik (Samantha) Bright, Bothell, Washington, Joshua (Anna) Green, Shelton, Washington, Joseph (Lara) Green, Langley, Washington; and seven great grandchildren.The family will host a celebration of Don’s life with a memorial service at Gateway Fellowship Church in Poulsbo, Washington on Saturday, February 24, 2024 at 1:00pm.In place of traditional flowers, the family has requested that any monetary donations be given to Gateway Christian Schools in Poulsbo, Washington (www.gatewaychristianschools.org) or Kings Schools in Palm Springs, California (www.kingsschools.net).For those wishing to send a remembrance, please mail to 19689 7th Ave NE, #244, Poulsbo, Washington, 98370 in care of the Green Family.Arrangements entrusted to Cook Family Funeral Home of Bainbridge Island, WA.

To him, Philippines is his home and he told everybody he was becoming Filipino. His plan was to visit family and friends even for the last time in the Philippines. Sadly, he didn’t make it because cancer took his life so quickly and unprepared. What was realized was an unexpected trip to paradise instead. Dennis will be remembered as a very strong loving, caring, affectionate, very generous at giving a helping hand to everybody or anybody. He taught his wife many things in life from gardening to cutting trees and running the backhoe and riding lawn mower.

He has this vibrant smile that makes everybody feels happy, comfortable and safe. He was loved by so many. At the last minute he was surrounded by all the people that loves him. He said to everybody, "I will die happy because I carry in my heart the love of everybody who showed me true, caring, love and affection, and my faith and beliefs in God, therefore I will be at peace."

He was deployed to Vietnam, Cuba, and Newfoundland as a Company Commander between 1963 and 1966, and served in Washington, D.C., at the Naval Facilities Engineering Command until an honorable discharge at the rank of Lieutenant in 1968.He married Beverly Ann Frost in Ferguson on December 11, 1965. After moving from Rhode Island to Virginia with the Navy, they settled in Toledo, Ohio in 1968. They adopted two children, Jeffrey Thomas Stark, in 1972, and Rebecca Ann Stark, in 1976, both born in Toledo.From 1968 to 1978 Tom worked as a glass engineer at Libbey-Owens-Ford. In 1978 the family moved to Littleton, Colorado, and Tom worked as a fiberglass engineer at Johns Manville until retiring in 2006. His name is on four United States patents for furnace design.He was passionate about sports and the sporting life. He ran track in high school, cross country in college, and as an adult enjoyed skiing, golf, and racquetball. He was an Eagle Scout as a boy and loved camping and the outdoors -- especially fishing.
