A well-known former Keswick man who retired to Spain with his wife has died there in hospital after a short illness.
Terence Green, who was known as Terry, was born in June 1944 to Eric and Dorothy Green and he spent the first two years of his life on his grandparents’ farm near Lincoln.
When his father was demobbed from the army at the end of the war, they moved back to the family home in Keswick at Eskin Street and later to Manor Park.
After Brigham School, Terence went to Keswick School.
A keen sportsman, he played rugby, cricket and tennis up to county level. Following sixth form, he joined the family firm of F & W Green.
With his wife Sandra, he had two children, Sarah and Tim, who both still live in Cumbria. Between them they have four children; Jack, Niamh, Isabel, and Ollie.
Sarah studied medicine at Oxford and after a time in New Zealand with her doctor husband Sam, she took up a post as a consultant oncologist at Lancaster and Barrow in Furness. Tim and his partner Sara run CBA Events in Keswick.
Terence’s brother John lives in Braithwaite and is organist at St John’s Church, where both were in the choir as boys.
With his second wife Sylvia, Terence moved to Morpeth and became manager of her dental practice.
Sylvia’s children Angela and Andy, from her first marriage to Ian, were much loved by Terence, along with their children Isla, Stan, Maisy and Theo and they still live in Keswick.
Angela is a medical representative and Andy owns Puzzling Place.
Arthritis meant Terence could no longer play the sports he enjoyed while at school, so along with his wife, he became an avid golfer.
Terence and Sylvia retired to Spain where he enjoyed the climate, food, hospitality and the year-round golf.
Four years ago, Terence was diagnosed with primary progressive aphasia, a form of dementia.
Following a bout of pneumonia, Terence died in the early hours of February 3.
