IN MEMORIUM - STEWART GREEN  (1944-2021)

 

    
It is with great sadness that I report the death of Stewart Green. I recently attended his funeral in Devon where he had lived since his retirement. Many people will remember J.E Green’s the builder’s merchants in West Green Road, who were well known in Tottenham having operated there for over a century. Stewart was the grandson of the founder, John Enoch Green, and Stewart’s father, Leslie Green had managed the shop for many years. Stewart had also worked in the shop for a number of years and will no doubt be remembered by his friends and customers. After the family business closed own, Stewart worked for many years for the Royal Mail based at Tottenham sorting office.

Following his retirement, Stewart moved to Devon to join his family who had already retired there. It was here that Stewart also took a keen interest in Lawn Bowls.
 
Stewart was a true son of Tottenham and was immensely proud of his roots. He attended Downhills infants and junior schools and later Markfield Secondary school.  He also took a keen interest in the local history of Tottenham and was a lifelong and passionate supporter of the Spurs.

 May he Rest in Peace
