FONTANA, Wis. – February 10, 1991 June 15, 2013. Kevin Daniel “Otis” Green, of Fontana, WI, and Woodstock, IL, died unexpectedly as the result of a car accident in Walworth County on Saturday, June 15, 2013. He was born February 10, 1991 in Woodstock, IL, to Clancy P. Green and Margie Kersten Green.
He is survived by his parents, Margie Kersten, and Clancy (Christina) Green and four siblings, Patrick Michael, Meghan Mary, Kersten Kathleen and Kathleen Anne; his paternal grandmother Mary Harding Green; and many aunts, uncles and cousins. He is preceded in death by his grandparents Don and Merope (Mitchell) Kersten of Fort Dodge, IA; James R. Green, and his uncle and Godfather, Daniel R. Green.
While his time was short, Kevin lived a full and energetic life. Kevin graduated from Marian Central Catholic High School in Woodstock, IL, in 2009 and the University of Wisconsin, Madison in May 2013 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Consumer Affairs. He was very excited about embarking on a new career as a manager with Amazon. From grade school through college, football was an integral part of his life. He played football for the St. Mary’s Fighting Irish, Marian Central Hurricanes and enjoyed playing rugby for the University of Notre Dame while attending Holy Cross College, during his freshman year. While at UW Madison, Kevin served as a student manager for the Wisconsin Badger Football team. During that time he traveled with the team for the 2012 Rose Bowl run in Pasadena, California.
Kevin had a love for the outdoors, a little adventure and was a natural leader. He spent many summers in the Lake Geneva area and was a loyal and respected team member at Gordy’s Lakefront Marine in Fontana where he proudly worked as a Pier Manager, serving boating customers. Most importantly, Kevin had many dear friends with whom he shared several adventures and a lot of laughter and his memory will live on.
