About Thomas Green

WHO IS THOMAS GREEN?

  • Even though I was born and raised in Rochester, NY, I am a true Dallas Cowboys fan (Roger Staubach is still the greatest QB in my book).
  • I’m married to the love my life, Charlotte, and relish the idea of growing old with her. We have six children and 4 granddaughters (and praying for more…grandchildren, that is).
  • I am a family man through and through. One of my favorite activities is hosting family and friends around the holidays.
  • I love music and can often be found rehearsing and singing with the men’s chorus, One Accord.
  • Music preferences: Classic R&B from the 50s, 60s, and 70s, sprinkled with some Classic and Modern Jazz. I’ll also take a little Steely Dan and Hall and Oates on the side.
  • I proclaim to be and always will be a kid at heart. That’s why kickball and water balloon fights with my family are tops on my list.
  • I am an amputee from age 9 due to a car accident. I don’t consider my amputation a disability but an opportunity to exhibit courage and strength in the face of adversity.
  • Little known fact about me: I am secretly competitive. I once jumped out of a two-story window to beat my cousin to the first floor.
  • My hero is my mother because she always reminds me that ‘I Kandu (pun intended) whatever I set my mind to.’ (Kandu was a whale she used to drive home her message.)
  • Favorite saying: (from my wife who reminds our children) ‘You can’t control what people say or do but you can control how you react or respond.’
  • What others say about me: vigor for life, love for people, family man, sweet toned singer, engages in uplifting conversations, patience of Job, cherishes the institution of marriage, loves the Lord.
