Mrs. Joy and family, It is hard to come up with the right words to express what Mr. Glenn has meant to me over the years. When I was trying to learn to play church softball and basketball, and not very athletic, he still smiled. His love for his church and his family are a shining example of what's truly important. He will be truly missed. Marcia
#24 Gary Fellers 2018-07-31 10:28

What a great man he was and always had positive thoughts to share each time i saw him. I enjoyed our time in the Lions Club and always looked forward to him cracking jokes and hearing that laugh. Don't get him started on Clemson football or the serious side was going to come out. I loved that man and am a better man for having spent time with hm.

Our thoughts and prayers will always be with you

Mr. Glenn was an icon from my life growing up. Whether it was some kind of sports, baseball, basketball, or golf; he was always in the mix. Mr. Glenn was always nice to me and I enjoyed his quick wit to go along with that competitive streak. Above all else, he was proud of his family and carried on a great life like Mr. Lyon and Mrs. Becky before him. We are sorry for your loss and offer you our prayers. I am certain he is at Peace and playing a round of golf. Lee, Carol, Joseph, Amelia and Jennylee
#5 Vicki Fellers Hansbe 2018-07-30 10:50
Dearest Joy and family, I am so sorry to hear of Glenn's passing. He will be badly missed. I have so many good memories of my childhood that involve Terry and Glenn. I so dearly loved to visit with Mammau and Granddad and play with my cousins. I can clearly remember Kick-the-can games at JP's store. Such a simple game but so fun. Glenn was so often a part of our games even though he was older than were, he kept us straight.
Ernie and I plan to see you Tuesday night. We have our 10 year old grandson from St Louis, Mo visiting with us and I feel I will be pressing my luck to try to make the funeral with him, too. Just know I love you all so much and wish I could see you more often. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. Love Vicki
