Andrew Shawn Green, 55

Andrew Shawn Green, 55, passed away on Tuesday, April 2nd, 2024, in the comfort of his home. A celebration of his life will be held on from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm Saturday, April 6th, 2024 at English Landing Park in Parkville, MO, with an additional service planned for June 2024 in Olive Branch, Mississippi. Arrangements entrusted to Mullinax Funeral Home, Butler (660-679-0009). Messages of condolence may be left for the family at www.mullinaxfuneralhome.com.


Andrew was born on May 9th, 1968, in Ankara, Turkey, to June & Jewel Green. Born into an Airforce Military Family, he was an adventurous soul. He was always the life of the party, knowing no stranger, and spreading joy and laughter everywhere he went.


Andrew attended school in Bellevue, Nebraska, where he played football throughout high school. He worked at a Military Base as a young man and soon after, he met the love of his life, Kandy Miller-Watkins, at just 24 years old. Shortly after, he moved to Kansas City, where he became a part of the Miller Clan and a diehard Chiefs Fan for the next 31 years. He took great pride in raising his stepsons, who were just 2 and 5 years old at the time, and he soon became the favorite Uncle to many nieces and nephews in the bunch. Andrew worked in the construction business most of his career, but was the jack of all trades, accomplishing anything he put his mind to. He absolutely loved a good game of poker, and it was clear that he didn’t like to lose.


In his final years, his greatest joy was being a cherished Papa to Gavin, Lilly, Jack, David, Felipe, and Liam. He absolutely loved his family and was proud to have been a part of raising his stepsons, Jayce, and Nick. There was truly no greater joy than family to Andrew. He is deeply missed but forever remembered for his vibrant spirit and loving nature.


Andrew was preceded in death by his mother, June Green, born in Scotland and his retired Airforce father Don (Jewel) Green.

He is survived by his lifelong love, Kandy, his two stepsons, Jayce Watkins (wife Michelle), Nicholas Watkins, his two Brothers, Stuart “Scott” Green (wife Rose), Brian Green (wife Stephanie), his cherished grandchildren, and many nieces, nephews, and friends near and far.
