A proper gentleman and always had time for a chat in my early days of senior rugby - will never be forgotten!

Thoughts and prayers are with all of the Green family

I haven't seen or spoken to Paul for so many years I cannot remember how long. Fond memories come back of his Stag Night when we ended up, courtesy of John, locked up in Hinckley Police Station. We lost touch. Just before Covid struck us I had found out where he lived and planned to just drop by when passing sometime. Show you just need to get on and do stuff when you can not wait.

I’ve been friends with Paul & Anita for many years. I remember during the early 1980’s standing in the kitchen of Hinckley Rugby Club where Anita & I would be cooking the after match meals and grabbing a few minutes between cooking to watch the game.

In the days before children we also enjoyed many social events.

I already worked at British Gas but I later moved departments to System Control and eventually Paul became my Manager. His knowledge of British Gas Transmission and management was excellent. He was a very well respected Manager.

In later years Paul joined us on many of the ‘Gas’ ski trips. I particularly remember my 50th birthday in Les Arcs where for the evening entertainment Paul made me stand on a chair to do the actions to him singing Alouette (rugby song).

Paul loved his family, sport, work and was full of energy and life. He was such fun to be in his company. He will be sadly missed by so many, many people. All our thoughts are with Anita, his family, parents and his sister Sharon.
Rest in Peace Paul.

I consider myself very privileged to have had such a close friend as Paul. You could always guarantee a story to tell after being in his company, whether that be an evenings entertainment round his and Anita's house or a few days away with him.
I experienced many sides of his warm, funny and generous nature. I trained, played and watched rugby with him, we learnt to ski at the same time (with a group from British Gas) and our two families spent several summer holidays together on the French west coast camping sites when the kids were young. Paul even influenced my working life, always available for sound advice on all working issues.
So 'yes Greeny' you will be sorely missed, but Sue and I know that you have left behind a strong closely knit family, whose support for each other will carry them through this sad time.
See you on the other side mate, loads of love,
Steve, Sue and family.

A wonderful service for a wonderful man who we are all going to miss terribly. Lovely to hear the family stories. An absolute legend, a generous, funny, warm hearted man who was to top it all a fantastic Rugby player. We will miss you Paul but never ever forget you. Love to the family who will ensure Pauls spirit will live on for a very long time. God bless.

Lucky enough to be taken under Paul's wing when making my senior debut. And some wing it was! Looked after me on the pitch and even more so in the clubhouse. A great man and my condolences to the Green family.

What a beautiful heartfelt service for Paul. John, Josie, Paul and Sharon used to live at no 9, while we the Millward’s lived opposite at no 10 Edale Green, where Julie still resides today. A thoroughly wholesome family, that produced such a good son, who obviously went on to perfectly set an example of what a wonderful human being should be. To be living in such an unsure world looking for guidance, look no further in how to live a worthy life. Let his good work carry on through all the lives Paul touched. Magnificent.

I worked with Paul at Hinckley NationalGrid Control Centre and he was a big charismatic personality within the team with a big heart and always had a smile on his face. Always up for a beer and a laugh, I remember he came to my leaving do dressed as a dinner lady, complete with make up... Sincere condolences to your family. RIP Paul
