Glenn was born in Brownwood, Texas on October 19, 1926, to Earl and Viola (Dribread) Lyon.   He was a veteran of World War II, 1944 – 1946 and was a retired chemical engineer.

Glenn was a devoted husband of 69 years to his beloved Virginia who passed away last year and was a loving father and grandfather.   

He enjoyed singing, reading, fishing, woodworking and crossword puzzles.

A quiet, honorable man who was well respected by everyone.    A man of few words, but a wise counsel with an infectious smile and a gentle spirit who always had warm hugs and inspiration to give to all. 

He was a faithful servant of the Lord, prayerful and thankful for daily blessings, he always marveled at God’s handiwork.  A member of Sojourner Ministry for 16 years, he was a member of the Whitney Church of Christ, serving as elder from 2007 – 2016. 

Although small in stature – he was a giant in the eyes of God.   He had a life well lived for 93 years.

His family of 2 daughters, 6 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren are left to cherish his memory
