Robert Louis Green, 74, of Shawnee died Nov. 3, 2012 of an illness at his home.

Robert was born Oct. 29, 1938 in Mineral Springs, Ark. to William Louis Green and Nola Belle Green.

He graduated from Earlsboro High School at the age of 16 and earned his bachelor's degree in education from East Central University in Ada and his master's from Northern Arizona University.

Bob's life-long profession in education was also a vocation. His first teaching job was at Emerson Elementary School in Oklahoma City, but the pursuit of his career took him to many locations including Las Vegas, Nev., and Anchorage, Ak. Eventually he came back to Oklahoma, where he was junior high principal at Bethel School for 10 years and superintendent of Grove School for 11 years before retiring. Bob was an excellent and compassionate educator who cared greatly about each and every student he served.

Marriage: Married to Sandra Jean Casteel on May 28, 1965.

He was a dedicated family man, often claiming his family to be his biggest accomplishment. The love between him and his wife and soulmate of 47 years, Sandra, was the cornerstone of his life. A hard worker both before and after his retirement, he was always looking forward to his next big project. Bob's enthusiasm for life, his warmth and good humor will be greatly missed.

The family would also like to thank the staff at Heartland Home Health and Hospice for their kindness and dedication.

He was preceded in death by his father, William Louis Green, and mother, Nola Green; father-in-law, Euin Casteel, and mother-in-law, Edith Casteel; and grandson, Colt Chesser.

He is survived by his wife, Sandra Green; daughter, Holly West; daughter, Kelly Chesser, son-in-law, Joel Chesser; grandson, Conlan Chesser and granddaughter Kimber Chesser; son, William "Billy' Green, daughter-in-law, Kacie Green, granddaughter, Ava Green; sister, Beverly Hyden, and nieces Lori Couch and Stacie Hyden.

A memorial service will be 2 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 8, 2012 at Walker Funeral Home chapel with Larry Sparks officiating.

Walker Funeral Service is in charge of arrangements.
