Stricken by a seizure at his home, Harry Costello Green, manager and owner of Green's Ltd., head of King Street, died on Tuesday afternoon at the General Hospital. He was 68 years of age.
The well-known tobacconist and merchant was born in Saint John, the son of the late Louis and Elizabeth (Hart) Green and had been a resident of the city all his life.
Mr. Green was a member of the fourth generation of the first Jewish family to settle in Saint John.
He had been manager of the business founded by his grandfather, Nathan Green in 1861, since the death of his father in 1922. For many years the store had been located in Saint John's uptown area. Prior to its present site at the Head of King Street, the store at different times was located on Charlotte Street, Prince William Street and in the City Market.
Mr. Green had been ill at his home, 24 Horsfield Street, for the last week recovering from an attack of flu family members said. He was a member of the Congregation of Shaarei Zedek and of the Saint John lodge Bnai Brith.
Surviving are his wife, the former Miss Dora Corber of Saint John; two sons, Louis P., Saint John and Nathan Green, Montreal' two daughters, Mrs. Samuel Cohen and Mrs. Louis Citren, Saint John; one brother Hart Green, QC, Winnipeg, Manitoba; one sister, Mrs. I.A.

[There should be a couple of corrections made to this obituary - Harry was actually a member of the third generation of Greens in Saint John and the Greens actually arrived one year after the Hart family who are considered to be the founders of the community.]
