Barry Joseph Green

Barry Joseph Green, 73, died Tuesday, April 20, 2021, at his home in Longview, following an extended illness.

Barry was born in Jeanerette Louisiana, the son of William E. Green and Louella Gary, but grew up in Nacogdoches and was a long-time resident of Beaumont, before retiring to Longview.

He was an Eagle Scout and a proud veteran of the US Navy, serving on the USS Hornet during the Vietnam War.  He was also aboard the Hornet when it picked up the Apollo 11 and 12 command modules. Barry was an entrepreneur and man of many talents. He was a Nacogdoches police officer, brick mason, managed a security company, served as the business agent of the Stagehand Local 183, and owned a dive shop, Aquaventures.  He also loved traveling with his wife, hunting with his friends in Alaska and his brother in Louisiana.

Known for his sense of humor and quick wit, he never met a stranger and could strike up a conversation with anyone, anywhere, anytime. He enjoyed many hours at the poker tables in Vegas, scuba diving in Cuba and Cozumel and socializing by the pool with his wife and best friends, Frank and Cathy Barber in Okeechobee, Florida. However, there was nothing he enjoyed more than spending time with his grandchildren, especially Pop’s boy, Beaux.
