Ruble Coy "Pete" Green went to be with his Heavenly Father on May 21, 2021 at his home in Rattan, Oklahoma. He was born on March 11, 1935 in Belzoni to Ruble Olaf and Lucille Mattie (Duncan) Green. Pete married Theresa Louise LeFlore on June 23, 1972 and they enjoyed many years together before her passing in 2014.
Pete was a man of God and a proud veteran of the United States Army National Guard, where he served in the medical core as a dental assistant. He was a Pastor of 46 years, and during that time ministered at 9 churches, including Sawyer Baptist where he was ordained, Rattan First Baptist, Friendship Baptist, Corinth Baptist, Emanuel Baptist, West Side Baptist, and Calvary Baptist and finished his ministries at Little Cedar Church. Pete also ranched his land for those 46 years, and always called it the Lord's Work. Although his one goal in life was to be a parole officer, he was an accomplished man in many areas, such as attending OBU and Northeastern State University before earning his Associate's Degree from Carl Albert State College and Bachelors in Psychology from Southeastern Oklahoma State University. Pete served as chaplain for Heartland Hospice, as well as at nursing homes in Choctaw, Pushmataha, and McCurtain counties. He had a passion for helping, and succeeding in making a difference in the lives of many children with speech issues. In his spare time, Pete visited over 40 states in his life. He even tried his hand at fishing, although deer hunting was more his pace.
