Arthur “Art” Green was born June 2, 1937 in Midland only because there was not a hospital in Odessa yet, as he always said. He passed away Oct. 24, 2019 at his home in Port Lavaca (Magnolia Beach).
Art lived a full life. He was very proud of his service in the United States Air Force before heading back to Texas where he graduated from The University of Texas at Austin. When he returned to Odessa, he was a staple of the professional community as one of Odessa’s longest practicing CPA’s. He was very active in his community as well as serving as president of Odessa College and numerous teaching positions at both local colleges. In January of 2018, Art happily retired to Magnolia Beach with his wife as they had always planned.
Art is survived by his wife D’Ann Foster; siblings, Glendya Williams and Detra Swenson and husband, Jim; children: Shane Connor, Sabrina Collum and husband, Rick, Amy Breithaupt and husband, Bill, Cecily Miller, Shayne May and wife, Jane, Shaynna May, John May and wife, Ashley; 21 grandchildren, two great-grandchildren, two on the way; numerous cousins, nieces and nephews.
