Albert was born on May 17, 1924, in Jackson, Mississippi, and passed away on Wednesday, Sept. 21, 2016, in Winthrop, Washington, where he had resided for the past 26 years.

Albert retired in Winthrop after a 48-year-long career in banking in Seattle. He was an avid fly fisherman and a co-founder of the Methow Valley Fly Fishers. He started fly fishing at the age of 11, learning from his father in Mississippi. Albert caught his last fish at Moccasin Lake at the age of 92, in May this year (2016).

Albert loved to laugh, tell stories, learn new things and help people in any way he could. He was a member of multiple service organizations over his lifetime. He was known for his chocolate brownies at the annual Kiwanis “Bite of the Methow” and his crab cakes at the annual Methow Valley Fly Fishers Christmas party.

Albert is survived by his wife, Susan Hinckel Green; daughters Susan Elizabeth Torngren and Lena Karunamaya; sons Albert Augustus Green IV and Richard Stuart Green; and three beloved grandsons. Services will be held at 1 p.m. at the Methow Valley United Methodist Church on Saturday, Oct. 8, 2016. Remembrances may be made in his name to the Methow Valley Fly Fishers.
