Paul Franklin Green was born on July 6th, 1999 to Gray Green Biber and Paul McRae Green at 10:10 pm at Presbyterian Main Hospital in Charlotte, North Carolina. 

Growing up it was clear to his parents that Paul had an energetic spirit, he always wanted to be older than he actually was (loved adult conversations), wanted to soak in as much information as he could, not to mention that he was naturally affectionate and loving.  Paul attended Charlotte Christian School, CPCC and Cape Fear Community College.  He loved sports and constantly watched games with his dad.  Early on in his life, his parent’s noticed Paul was instinctively competitive, a go-getter and willing to seek out the things he was great at!

On November 7th, 1999 he was Baptized at Amity Presbyterian Church and later completed confirmation at Sardis Presbyterian Church of Charlotte. Paul made friends easily, loved everyone and always wanted to be with his friends. 

At age 16, Paul wrote “life is a blur, inside a world that doesn’t know its own dreams, instead it’s drifting away from the right things.”  His competitive spirit compelled him to pursue his love of sports; playing football, tennis, lacrosse, basketball and wrestling.  

There are many funny memories that Paul’s family have of his life. His charm was captivating, his piercing green eyes could light up any room and his smile was comforting and reassuring to everyone.  People who knew Paul felt close to him, making everyone around him feel alive and important.  He was attentive and too big for this world.  He made people laugh by pushing their boundaries, daring others and taking a dare.

Paul overly and obsessively loved his brother Max and his sister Sophia.  He craved the feeling of being the supportive, loving big brother, always wanting to take care of them and he took it to heart.

The bond between Paul and his mother was like putting two negatives together, telling each other everything, knowing each other as if they were the same person.  His father was his best friend, the connection was incomparable, never ceasing and the love was immeasurable.

Paul’s emotions ran deep and hard for many reasons.  He met all people on a spiritual level.  He had a huge heart for everyone he ever met and he would do anything for anyone he cared about.  One of the lessons he shared with his family is to never give up, to keep trying and be your true-self.  He could only be who he was, no one could change him, he had to be himself, his true and authentic self whether people liked him or not.

In a letter four years ago to his mother and father, Paul wrote… “Dear Mom & Dad, I’ve realized my actions had no benefits, I’ve taken things for granted, I now need to work myself out of the situation, today I commit to change to being someone different than I have been, I strive for greatness.”

Paul is preceded in death by his maternal grandmother Andrea Efird Miller “Mimi”, paternal grandmother Pauline Carter “Nana”, step grandmother Charlene Efird “Grammy-Pete” and step-grandfather David Miller “Papa.”  Paul Frank Green is survived by his beloved parents Gray Efird Green Biber and Paul McRae Green, stepfather Michael Scott Biber, brother Maxwell Bernhardt Green and sister Sophia Gray Biber, maternal grandfather David Separk Efird, aunt Lillian Thompson Yarborough and uncle Chas Allen Efird along with many other family members and friends that love him dearly.

Paul’s family would like to thank the Atrium Dickson Heart Center team of doctors, nurses and LifeShare of the Carolinas staff for their professionalism and compassionate care.  On June 4th, 2023 Paul Frank re-confirmed his life to Jesus in Baptism.  Paul Franklin Green, aged 23 was pronounced deceased on Thursday, June 22, 2023 just 15 days shy of his 24th birthday.  Paul’s family wishes to express their gratitude and love to everyone who has reached out with support during this significant life experience.
