" Born May 27, 1960, McDowell county native Elden E. Green succumbed to a lengthy illness on January 8, 2015. Though his life was much shorter than his family and friends would have preferred, he lived it fully and with intelligence, warmth and care.
"A 1978 honors graduate of Iaeger High School and married to Ivirose Toler in 1981, Elden started his own engineering business, primarily for the coal industry, in 1984. As a Licensed Professional Surveyor in both Virginia and West Virginia, Elden's career carried him into many different business circles and through the lives of many WV and VA residents. He was the owner of Green Tree Consulting and the building where it is housed, the Miners and Merchant's building downtown Welch, WV; a board member of the McDowell County PSD and the McDowell County Tourism Committee.
"Elden loved to read and had a passion for knowledge. Intrigued with the sky and the land, he had an avid interest in astronomy and cartography. He was a chess master and ping pong champion in high school and continued both conquests throughout his adult years, still able to take down the teenagers who tried his hand.
"Anyone who talked with Elden knew he sincerely appreciated his heritage. He loved his home state and his family. And he loved visiting the Shenandoah Valley and the Great Smokey Mountains. He was an avid photographer, mostly of wildlife and nature. He loved to take pictures of animals and paint them when he could find the time to get the oils on the canvas "just right". His humorous comment was "Perfectionism is a heavy burden to bear." A talented artist since his high school days, his paintings hang in his home and the homes of his family members; and have been shown locally - most recently at the McDowell County Public Library.
"Hunting was also one of Elden's favorite leisure pursuits - and not just in the fall. He read about hunting year round. He played hunting games on the computer with his nephews any time they visited. During all months of the year, you could find him sitting on his back porch late at night, making any native animal noise!
"Of all Elden's earthly accomplishments, his love and faithfulness to God not only top the list, but provided him with the joy and contentment in his heart to share life with each of us as he did. A member of the Church of God at Harmons Branch, he was a tenor in the church choir and sang in duets, trios and quartets. His love for God was often expressed through music and in the way he happily lived his life, enjoyed his family and friends and opened his heart, his home and his wallet to any and all with benevolence.
"Elden was preceded in death by his parents, Jesse & Gladys Green and 6 siblings: Nannie Tilley, infant Georgia Green, Ralph Green, Nellie Muncy, Hobart Green and Steve Green. He is survived by his wife, Ivirose Green, of Roderfield, WV; brother, Willard Green of Knoxville, MD; brother John (wife, Wanda) Green of Roderfield, WV; many close in-laws in Waynesboro, VA, and a host of nieces and nephews who he loved as children.
"The Fanning Funeral Home of Iaeger will serve the Green family. Visitation will be held on Sunday evening at Fanning Funeral Home in Iaeger from 6pm-9pm. Funeral services will be held at 11am on Monday morning at the Church of God at Harmon's Branch, 5534 Coal Heritage Road, Iaeger WV and will be conducted by Pastor John Green. Nephews will serve as pallbearers. Elden will be laid to rest in the Roselawn Memorial Gardens in Princeton, WV...."
