Franklin Delano “Frank” Glenn, 81, of McCalla, Alabama, went home to be with the Lord May 10, 2014. He was born on April 3, 1933, in Ariton, Alabama, and served his country as a member of the United States Navy in the China Service, Korean Service and the National Defense Navy Occupation.

When he was discharged from the Navy, Frank went to work for Hayes International, followed by Barber Dairy and Electrical Repair and Service Company before forming his own business, Industrial Apparatus. His enduring personality and quick wit allowed him to excel in the motor rewinding business where his fellow employees and loyal customers were also his friends.

Frank loved fishing with his family and friends as well as cheering on his favorite team, the Alabama Crimson Tide. He was a member of Westwood Baptist Church in Adamsville where he came to know the Lord at the age of 64, after many years of tireless prayers from his family and friends from Westwood and special deacons, B.F. Atkins and Sterling Pritchett.

He was preceded in death by his parents, William Albert and Fannie Mitchell Glenn; his brothers, Gevon Glenn, Charles Glenn and Chesley Mitchell; and sisters, Ruth Ramsey and Sybil Holcombe.

Frank is survived by his wife of 55 years, Mary Pike Glenn, who has tirelessly cared for and loved him, a wonderful example of a Godly virtuous woman whose price is far above rubies. He is also survived by his children, Terry Franklin Glenn, David Gevon Glenn and special friend Jacinta, Pat Glenn Nelson (Mark) and Randy Eugene Glenn (Brandi); grandchildren, David Franklin Glenn, Rusty Delano Glenn, Amanda Ellen Nelson, Abby Camille Nelson, Ashley Brooke Nelson, Rebecka Elizabeth Glenn, Jacob Zachary Glenn, Nathanial Regan Glenn and David Franklin Glenn (Tera); great-grandchildren, Gabie Kate Glenn and Mary Ella Glenn; as well as sister, Judy Cockerham; and sisters-in-law, Janet Glenn and Raye Glenn.

Friends were received Monday, May 12, 2014, from 6 until 8 p.m. at the Crestview Memorial Funeral Home in Adamsville.

Services will be today, May 13, 2014, at 2 p.m. in the Crestview Memorial Chapel with the Rev. Steve Potts officiating. Burial will follow at Pleasant Hill Cemetery in Townley.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to Westwood Baptist Church in Adamsville.

Through the pain of his loss, we rejoice that our dear husband, father and grandfather is now in heaven where he can speak our names clearly, has no pain and is dancing with Jesus!
