He was born October 26, 1931 in Kansas City, MO. He later moved to California, and then the Pedelo community.  Ival attended school at Sparta and graduated there.

Ival was united in marriage to Dixie Dean Green on April 10, 1955. From that union four children were born.


He enjoyed playing music with family and friends and had a music barn for many years where anyone was welcome to sit in and play.

I remember growing up with Ival. As young adults, raising families, we spent a lot of time at Mill Creek campground with the Sniders, Patterson’s, Greens, and Eakins families. Ival was the kind of person America was built, loved, and defended by. He was the Salt of the Earth. RIP IVAL.

Ival was one of those unique people that you loved as soon as you met him. He reminded me of my own Dad in so many ways. Love to hear him sing and play music. May you always remember the wonderful things about your Dad and Gpa. He is not forgotten amoung his many friends. Love to all and prayers for peace and comfort.

What a wonderful man and a blessing to many. I will always cherish my many years going to his music barn with my dad. My mother also sends her sympathies and my father has been speaking of him a lot lately. Please know I hold each of you in my thoughts and prayers.

I am so sorry for your loss. We had a lot of good times at the Bruner Community Center playing music with Ival and Becky. I knew Becky better because of the music jams but I know you all are hurting. My parayer is that God cradles you in His arms with comfort for the days ahead.

I loved Ival Green, he was a kind, Gentle man, very fun and witty. I played music at his awesome music Barn for 9 yrs., what a Wonderful time.
Ival's hospitality was second to none. I always felt welcome, his daughters, Becky and Kelly played music, and was always there.
I can never forget Ival Green 💚 ❤ 💙
