Danny J. Glenn, 72


Danny James Glenn, 72, of Waggoner, died on Monday, Nov. 16, 2020, at 1:50 p.m.

Private family services were held. Burial took place at Farmington Cemetery in Pleasant Plains. Staab Funeral Home in Springfield assisted the family.

Mr. Glenn was born Sept. 18, 1948, in Springfield, to Calvin James and Delores Marie (Heineman) Glenn. He married Mary Beth Stewart on Aug. 26, 1967, and she preceded him in death on Feb. 24, 2016.

He retired from Hostess after 20 years of service. He owned and operated Glenn Dry Carpet Cleaning for over 20 years, and he and his wife lovingly owned a cat rescue center for more than 15 years.

Mr. Glenn loved the St. Louis Cardinals and enjoyed watching NASCAR, Frankenstein movies “Uncle Frank”, Gunsmoke, The Waltons, Bonanza, The Rifelman “Mark and Pa”, Andy and Barney, Pink Panther movies and any and all John Wayne movies.

He also enjoyed playing at the Lake of the Ozarks, racing go-carts and the annual croquet competitions at his son-in-law’s house. At the time of his passing, he and Uncle Frank were still in hot pursuit of “The Chief” and evading the nerd police. He truly was a man with true grit.

Mr. Glenn is survived by his three daughters, Julie (Jim) Thome of Alton, Cindy (Casey) Quertermous of Seymour, TN, and Laurie (Tim) Johnson of Pawnee; five grandchildren, Kimberly (Geoff) Magon of Cape Coral, FL, Logan (Kiani) Thome of Alton, Madisen (Tommy) Colonius of Springfield, and Peyten Johnson and Quenten Johnson, both of Pawnee; two great-grandchildren, Sebastian and Bellamy Magon; one brother, Gary (Diann) Glenn of Pawnee; and several nieces, nephews and cousins.

In addition to his wife, he was preceded in death by his parents.

Memorials may be directed to the local Kingdom Hall in support of Jehovah’s Witnesses.
