Phillip M. Green, Jr., 81, of Fort Smith, passed away February 15, 2019.
Phil was born in Galveston, Texas, December 11, 1937.

He was known, affectionately by his friends, as “Pigpen.”
He was preceded in death by his parents, Phil, Sr. and Elizabeth Green, and his son, John P. Hunter.

He is survived by his wife of 48 years, Norma Sue (Susi) Bennett Green; his son, DuCote “Coty” Hunter; his daughter, Michelle (David) Greenfield, all of Fort Smith; his grandchildren: Johnathan (Jennifer) Hunter of Rogers; Luke (Caroline) Greenfield; Faith Greenfield, and John Phillip Greenfield, all of Fort Smith; Jason Hunter of Lincoln; his great-granddaughter, Danika Hunter of Rogers; three sisters, Cholly Tippit, Marion (David) Snow, and Dorothy Harris. He is also survived by two brothers, Harry Green of Bentonville and Jimmy (Sherrie) Green, as well as his step-parents, Helen and Richard Hodo, all of Van Buren.

Phil attended Fort Smith Senior High and Westark Community College. After being activated by the Air National Guard, he was stationed in France during the Berlin Crisis as a driver. He worked as a Station Agent at Central Airlines and later at Frontier Airlines for 25 years. He was co-owner of the first Recovery Room; Assistant Manager at Fort Chaffee Golf Course; and co-owner of GreenLadd’s Restaurant, with his good friend, Jerry Ladd. He was a very kind soul, dearly loved by his family and many lifelong friends. He enjoyed playing golf and visiting with friends and family. He hosted the Annual Grand Central, Jerry Ladd and Pigpen Golf Tournament for 21 years; and also hosted the Annual Alumni Frontier Pignic for close to 30 years. We wish to extend special thanks and appreciation to Hospice and Mercy Hospital.
