Glenn loved his Lord Jesus Christ, his family, and his church, First Baptist Church of Duncan.

After graduating from Carnegie High School, he served his country in the United States Navy from 1944 to 1945 in San  Diego, Calif..  

Glenn met the love of his life, Dorothy Eileen Carr, in Oklahoma City while attending business school. They were married on Oct. 14, 1950, and made their home in Duncan in 1956 to present.  

Glenn went on to become successful in the life insurance and financial planning business. His work gave him a great sense of accomplishment by helping others. When not working in his business, Glenn loved to hunt, fish, camp and go boating. He enjoyed introducing people to these sports and building friendships along the way.  

In addition, he spent many hours using his talent of carpentry in building furniture and other fine wood pieces.  

Glenn served as a deacon at First Baptist Church of Duncan for many years. He truly enjoyed singing in the choir in worship to the Lord Jesus Christ.  

Glenn and Dorothy were blessed with three children, Stan Clark of Guthrie, and his wife Debbie, Greg Clark of Edmond, and his wife Marty, Sondra Clark Cover of Plano, Texas, and her husband Tim.

Glenn deeply loved and enjoyed spending time with his nine grandchildren, four great grandchildren, and would have loved seeing the four others due in 2013.
