Doug was born May 20, 1947 in Columbus, TX to Floyd L. Green and Ruth Green. He graduated from Columbus High School and attended Wharton County Jr. College and the University of Houston. Doug moved to Limestone County more than thirty years ago, establishing his Rocking G farm, ranch and wildlife. Following a career in sales, Doug later farmed peaches in Limestone County, raised cattle on his ranch, and was employed as Deputy Chief Appraiser for the Limestone County Appraisal District for many years. He was an avid outdoorsman, enjoying deer hunting, bird hunting and fishing as well as many weekend barbeques and fish fries with family and friends. He enjoyed fishing in Costa Rica, and deer hunting in Kansas as well as many sites in Texas, and to the Texas Coast for geese, but the most memorable were father and son hunting with his son Luke. He taught his son be a “hunter, not a shooter”, which involved properly judging the age of the game, then to “dress, process, and eat” what you shoot. Doug’s walls were filled with the memories of his hunts through his many mounted trophies. Doug was devoted to wildlife management in his personal life and also he encouraged others to properly manage their land for better quality wildlife and habitat to protect the community’s renewable resources. Doug was preceded in death by his parents. He is survived by his sons, Samuel Green and Luke Green; sister Sandra Vaughn; nephews, J. R. Vaughn and Gary Larsen; uncle Clemmons Venghaus and family; aunt Waldine Sopchak and family; and aunt Ernestine Green and family. The family expresses heartfelt appreciation to members of the Scott and White Healthcare team for their compassionate care and support. Persons wishing to donate to a memorial for Doug may send contributions to The American Cancer Society or a charity of their choice.
