Robert Lee Green "Bob-Rock", son of Dea. William Green and the late Clara Graves Green was born April 19, 1946 in Jasper County, South Carolina. He was the third of five children.
He received his formal education in the Jasper County public school system.
Robert was employed as a carpenter and worked in construction for many years. Robert had a passion for cooking and barbequeing, preparing his special maccaroni and cheese dish, and signature barbeque sauce. He enjoyed cooking for his family and the community.
On December 23, 1968, Robert married Ada Mae Parker, and the union was blessed with three children.
Robert also had a passion for singing gospel music. He sang with his father and brothers for more than 50 years in the family group called "The Green Brothers"; and was awarded "The Best Lead Singer" by the LCAPA Organization. Robert and the Green Brothers recorded several records, in which he was known for his popular recordings of "Sinner Man", "This Old Building", "When You Pray, Pray Right"; and his favorite, "I Believe I'll Run On to See What the End is Going to Be". Robert sang every chance he got, even when his breathing wasn't strong.
On Monday, July 16, 2013, Robert answered that call, and went home to be with the Lord. He was preceded in death by his son, Robert Green, Jr.
