Mace Green Sr. Obituary

Mace Green Sr., the son of the late Quincy Green and Floree Belk Green, was born July 3, 1943 in Lancaster, South Carolina. He entered eternal rest on January 11, 2024 at MUSC Hospital in Lancaster, South Carolina. 


Mace accepted Christ at an early age and joined St. Paul A.M.E. Church in Lancaster, South Carolina where he served faithfully as a trustee. 


Mace attended Barr Street Elementary and graduated from Barr Street High School in 1963.  Mace was a member of The Barr Street High School Football team. He also studied Brick Masonry at Barr Street High School. Mace, along with all of his brothers worked with their father, the late Quincy Green as Brick Masons. Through a lineage of mastering his craft as a Brick Mason, Mace decided to start his own business as a sole proprietor and named it, Mace Green’s Masonry. He took great pride in his business operations. Laying bricks was truly his passion. He trained and provided employment for many citizens throughout Lancaster County when jobs were few. 


In addition to his Brick Masonry company, Mace decided to take ownership of a “small” pool hall called, “The Paradise” in New Town started by his late father, Quincy Green. The business was such a success that he decided to close the Paradise and go into partnership with a longtime friend, the late Faye Stover to open to the “747” nightclub. After the passing of his friend Faye, Mace became the sole owner of the “747” club. He later changed the name to “The Big Daddy’s Lounge”.  Big Daddy’s Lounge was the place that everyone wanted to be. There was great food, lots of dancing, and live entertainment. You could come out to see the best fashion show in town or the greatest “Janet Jackson” impersonation you had ever seen. The lounge also afforded young groups like the “Fad Breakers” an opportunity to showcase their talent. There used to be cars lined up to enter the lounge as far a the eyes could see. 


Mace enjoyed spending time with this lovely wife, Mary Green, who preceded him in death. She was the love of his life. He took delight in driving her to work and picking her up from work every day. They would always finish the day off by enjoying a delicious meal at a local restaurant. Mace and Mary worked hand and hand running Big Daddy’s lounge. Mace would make sure all things were on one accord with the operations for the night and Mary would handle the door of entry. They were a team like no other. 


Mace loved his grandchildren dearly. They were near and dear to his heart and he supported them in everything they did. And, whatever they asked him for no matter what it was or how much it cost, he made it happen. But, the greatest gift of all he gave them was unconditional love. Mace loved fishing, watching any old western movie he could find, cooking, and spending time and talking on the phone with his siblings. His daughter, Tamara(Missy) had the key to his heart. He always made sure she had the support whenever it was needed. She was truly daddy’s girl.  His right hand was his son, Mace Green Jr. And, where you saw one, you always saw the other. Macejr made sure Mace had everything he ever needed. They often enjoyed long talks, quick meals along the way in between jobs. And, though Macejr was the overseer of those jobs, Mace was always there to  provide the input needed. 


Mace was the kindest, most well respected, person anyone could ever meet. He was a very quiet, humble person with a heart of gold. Mace was a great leader, a great teacher, and a great friend to those who knew him best. 


Left to cherish fond memories are his son, Mace Green Jr.(Eleidy); daughter Tamara Green, Grandson Mason Green; Granddaughters Daisha Stevenson and Penelope Poloncos Green(All of Lancaster);  Great Grandchild, Champion Thompson(Lancaster); Sisters, Joyce Roberts of Windsor, CT, Allison Green of Charlotte, NC, Francis Cauthen of Lancaster, SC, Lottie Profit(Jackie) of Florence, SC, a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and other relatives and friends. 


He was preceded in death by brothers John, Marion, and Robert Green.
