Quentin Chase Green, age 27, of Vanderbilt, MI, left us in the physical world on March 8, 2023.
Quentin was born in Petoskey, Michigan, on June 30, 1995, to Jeff and Amanda (Kerry) Green.
He spent many of his years in Northern Michigan enjoying everything he loved with his aunts and uncles, siblings, and cousins. His life growing up was split between Wolverine and Vanderbilt. He was a student at Wolverine Schools and an avid sportsman. He was a catcher during his many years of baseball and was so gifted. Part of Quentin’s heart also belonged to the mountains of North Dakota where he spent some years working before returning home and spending the last of his time close to family and many of his dear friends.
When you think of Quentin many of the memories will involve the outdoors. He loved snowmobiling, fishing, camping, two-tracking, motorcycles, and pick-up trucks, and when Q was growing up, he lived and breathed hunting. Quentin was talented in many areas of his life, but his talents shined in mechanics and always doing his own work to get different vehicles running. He was also a great builder. He worked on many projects and took pride in his work. He always had animals and for many years loved his bearded dragon.
In his most recent years, Quentin was a new father. Saxtin Thomas Green was born on August 29, 2022, to Q and his beloved partner, Aliyah Suiter.
He was so proud of his son and his love for him was felt by all.
Quentin is survived by his special son, Saxtin, and Saxtin’s mother, Aliyah; his father, Jeffrey (Joy) Green; mother, Mandi; grandmothers, Sandy Green, Susan Goodenough, and Kay Colbeck; grandfather, Mark (Elaine Beck) Kerry; brothers, Cole and Levi Green and Ryse Brink; sister, Raina Brink; uncles, Chris (Jennifer) and Scott Green and Wally Szunko; aunts, Nicole Shelters, Rochelle Kerry, Jackie Colbeck, and Jennifer Szunko; step-siblings, Ross Spreeman, Alyson Spreeman, and Melissa Whitman.
He had many loving cousins he spent many of his years with; Samantha, Larissa, Hilarie, Jack, Justus, Eddy, Kurtis, Andrew, AJ, Madison, Aleksa, Cole, and Jenna.
Q was preceded in death by his uncle, Kurtis R. Green; stepfather, Robert H. Brink; and grandfather, Thomas C. Green.
Quentin had many additional family members spread across the country who were near and dear to his heart. Quentin was loved by so many of his dear friends and we thank you all for being there for him.
