Memorial Spaceflights

Philip Frederick Green

"We miss you. Fulfill your dreams"
1960 - 2007

Philip is a much missed son of Alec Green, brother of Lynne, Uncle of Joanne and best friend to Dennis. He was born to Freda and Alec, in Newcastle on Tyne in England, though he never knew his mother, who died in childbirth. He attended Longbenton High School and lived in Newcastle and Allendale all his short life, yet he was a frequent visitor to Scotland and Florida. He worked first in public transport, and later developed a talent for the traditional craft of stone-wall building. He loved science fiction, cooking, model making, music, walking his dogs and making fun. He had an enormous thirst for knowledge."

His good humor and kindness will be missed by all who knew him. As a talented archer he is remembered by the Allen A Dale Archers, who have dedicated a memorial trophy in his name, in keeping with his wish to help others to achieve. Philip was fascinated by space and it was his lifetime wish to travel in space and look down on Earth. Shine on, you crazy diamond!

The Arrow and the Song
by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I shot an arrow into the air,
It fell to earth, I knew not where;
For, so swiftly it flew, the sight
Could not follow it in its flight.

I breathed a song into the air,
It fell to earth, I knew not where;
For who has sight so keen and strong,
That it can follow the flight of song?

Long, long afterward, in an oak
I found the arrow, still unbroke;
And the song, from beginning to end,
I found again in the heart of a friend.
