Glen was a man of faith, actively involved in the First Baptist Church Elm Mott and Oak Grove Baptist Church in China Spring.  His commitment to his faith was evident in his participation in numerous church activities, serving as deacon, chairing numerous committees, teaching Sunday school, and singing in the choir.  If the church doors were open, he was there.

A lover of the outdoors, Glen enjoyed his time fishing, water skiing, camping, gardening, and raising goats on occasion.  These hobbies provided him not just relaxation but also time spent with family and friends in the environments he loved.

Glen, in his humble, quiet, simple ways touched many lives unknowingly.  He is fondly remembered as a Christian example and mentor to those who had the honor of knowing him.
