Elliot Rogers Green, 88, of Kennebunk, Maine, passed away on Monday, March 20 at Maine Medical Center in Portland. Elliot was born in New York City on April 23, 1928 to the late Thomas Dudley Green and Natalie Rogers Green, and was a direct descendant of Nathaniel Lord Thompson, 19th century sea captain and ship builder of Kennebunk.

He spent his childhood in West Hartford, Connecticut and graduated from Kingswood School. He went on to graduate from Bowdoin College. He served in the Korean War as a sergeant in the Army Artillery. He thoroughly enjoyed his career of over 50 years that was spent in the fiberboard industry. That included sales, product development, as well as mergers and acquisitions connected to that industry.

With the exception of 10 years spent in North Berwick, he and his family lived in Kennebunk. He served as a trustee of Kennebunk Light and Power District, trustee of North Berwick Water District and was also a Scout Master of Boy Scout Troop 304. He was a member of Alcoholics Anonymous where he valued many long and active friendships. He was a former member of Arundel Yacht Club where he sailed with family and friends for many years. Playing doubles tennis with a local group was a favorite pastime for over 40 years and he also downhill skied with family and friends for over 50 years. He had an annual thriving vegetable garden until recent years. He was also very interested in history and could often be found reading and learning more about it. He and his wife traveled frequently with Elderhostel, often to learn more about history.

He is survived by his beloved wife of 34 years, Elizabeth A. Green of Kennebunk and his children Robert Douglas Green of Belhaven, North Carolina, John Duncan Green and his wife Susan of Lyman, and Julia Lisa Buchanan of Arvada, Colorado, as well as a brother, Thomas D.
