Gene Douglas Green

April 4, 1943 — July 14, 2023

Gene Douglas Green (80) of Cortland, OH, passed away unexpectedly on July 14th, 2023. Born April 4th, 1943, to James and Jean Green, Gene spent his childhood in Warren, OH, alongside his two brothers, Jim and Nelson.

He spent his formative years with his father, developing a commitment to Warren Precision Heat Treating, a family business. After his father's passing, he fully dedicated himself to the company, working tirelessly to make it the success that it was, finally retiring in 2018.

He met the love of his life, Donna, in 1990. They spent 31 years building a loving and welcoming home. Together they enjoyed spending time in the yard, on the water, and with their family.

Gene was a tenacious man. His work ethic and dedication to his family were unmatched. He had a love for antiques and a passion for restoring old vehicles. He spent his days searching for new projects and completing countless others.

Gene was a member of the 5 Point Model A Club, Treasures Hunters of Trumbull County, and the Cortland Moose Lodge.

His canine friends meant the world to him. Missy has stayed behind with Donna, but Bud and Molly are with him now on an endless walk down to the water.

Gene is survived by his loving wife, Donna; brother, Nelson Green of Southington, OH; stepchildren: Jeff Fenton of Charlotte, NC, Bruce Fenton of Rock Hill, SC, and Kathy Jurgle of Cortland, OH; son-in-law and dear friend Ted Jurgle; grandchildren: Gary Weigle, Amy (Mike) Gulino, Zane (Ciara) Fenton, Kelly Fenton, Jenny (Luke) Blackney, Corey Jurgle, Stacy Fenton, Kody (Ashley) Fenton, and Madison Callahan as well as many other beloved family members and dear friends.

Gene was predeceased by his father, James; mother, Jean; brother, Jim; sisters-in-law, Mary and Joann; and nephew, Jimmy.
