The funeral service will be private. Family and friends are invited to attend the committal service on Thursday, March 26, at 2:15 p.m. at Lakeside Memorial Gardens, 2712 Oak Grove Church Road, Angier.

Glenn attended Buies Creek High School where he met his wife, Sylvia. They were classmates from first grade through their graduation in 1971. They were elected Mr. and Miss Senior Class of BCHS their senior year. After high school, Glenn attended North Carolina State University before becoming a farmer, and later, a service technician with AmeriGas, from where he retired.

He loved his family and the Lord with all his heart. He was a constant, loving role model to his girls, helping to raise them to love God. Glenn was a man who led his family with a gentle spirit, and was steadfast and unwavering in all things good. He loved to hunt, surf fish, and was a creative woodworker. Glenn was truly a “jack of all trades” and would not hesitate to help anyone with anything.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the American Heart Association in Glenn’s memory (online at or mail to: 7272 Greenville Ave., Dallas, TX, 75231).
