Glenn E. Moran

10 mayo , 193618 septiembre , 2020

Born in Low Moor, Va on May 10, 1936, entered into eternal rest on Sept 18, 2020 after a brief Illness. The son of Clara Belle Palmateer Moran and John Glenn Moran, he was raised and educated In Covington, Va and furthered his education at Kentucky Christian College. He loved to tell stories of his high school friends and their shenanigans and maintained these solid relationships with his classmates, attending all of his class reunions and keeping in touch with some of them on a daily basis even up until the day of his death. He met and married the love of his life, Margaret Robinson Moran, in 1956 and their love story continued until her demise in 2006. From this union arose 5 children: Teressa M Swanson of Clarion PA, David E Moran of Goode, Sandra M Parker (Richard) of Lynchburg, Karen M Morris, of Rustburg and Kelley M Cash (Michael) of Monroe; 6 grandchildren and 7 great grandchildren... all of whom were the lights of his life. He was also survived by two sisters and predeceased by one brother, one sister and one granddaughter. He was a dynamic preacher using his vast knowledge of the Bible, powerful voice, and sense of humor in his sermons but it was simply the ease at which he related to people and his gift of gab (he never met a stranger) that would serve him the most both in the ministry and in life. His life in the ministry covered several areas across Va but his most memorable stint would be in a small church in a small town in Powell’s Point , NC (God’s country) where his children were raised and lifelong friends were made. This was where his family called home. He returned to Va in 1969 to be near family and began a new career at B&W that would continue until his retirement. Never one to sit idle, Glenn began to pursue his dreams after retirement, taking ballroom dancing lessons, traveling extensively (the most memorable trip being to Ireland where he got in touch with his Irish roots, kissed the Blarney Stone and witnessed what he calls to date the most spectacular sight of his life at the Cliffs of Moher) and sky diving in his 80s (not once but twice). The most life changing of his “second life” adventures was the Harley Davidson he had always dreamed of and through this association he would make journeys and friends that would become a vital part of his existence. There are no words to describe the enjoyment he had and lifelong friendships he made through this pure connection of man, nature and the road. He was a man of many talents and accomplishments. He was a master woodworker and story teller, the products of which are sure to be enjoyed and passed down for generations to come. A visitation for family and friends will be held on Tuesday September 22, 2020 at Whitten Timberlake Chapel and the funeral service will be conducted by Jim Freeman of Union Christian Church at the same location on Wednesday September 22, 2020. A private burial will be held at a later date. Many have relied on his words of wisdom and comfort that were always simple and yet so profound. Dad, we need those at this time more than ever.

Enjoyed riding with Glenn and Karen, and he would always share his stories and his prayers with all of the bikers that were riding that day. After one ride, we had Glenn and Karen and another couple come for a ride on our boat @ SML. You’ll be missed, but until we see each other again. Rest In Peace my friend......

It was Mr. Moran and others at Powells Point Christian Church that planted those seeds, told those stories, sang those songs- about Jesus’ love. He was there during my childhood, and although I didn’t fully accept Jesus as my Lord and Savior until a year or so after he left- he was an integral part of my story. I’m forever grateful.

Condolences to Glenn's family from First Christian Church in Covington, VA where Glenn was active in his younger years and built life-long friendships. From FCC he went to Kentucky Christian College to train for ministry and gospel preaching which he did so well. It was always a pleasure to have him visit us when he came for high school reunions, etc. He was the oldest living Timothy of the church, and he will certainly be missed.

Thoughts and prayers to Glen's family and friends. I want to extent a special thanks to Karen Michelle for her daily updates and phone calls to my daddy during Glenn's illness. It meant the world to him to know how his lifelong friend was faring. Glenn's death is especially hard for him and I appreciate your kindness during your own time of grief. Much love to everyone.

We, “the Dean & Janice Owens family,” are heartbroken. We dearly loved Glenn. He was our minister at Powells Point Christian Church for many years and his influence and teachings continue to be a part of our lives. He baptized two of my brothers, Garry and Jimmy, and me: what better legacy could he leave for us? When he visited the Outer Banks, it was always a joy to see him; he would attend the worship service. We loved hearing his voice as the congregation sang, and usually he was called upon for the benediction: the memory of his prayers is precious. No one prayed like he did!On a recent visit he and his friend, Karen, joined us at our home for family lunch after church. He kept us entertained and the room was filled with laughter with stories of his Powells Point days and the people and “adventures” he experienced. His recall was amazing. He was quite the storyteller! I treasure all of my memories of him, and I pray that all the memories you have will bring comfort to you during this difficult time. Being in his presence was always a joy and I am sure he is experiencing joy beyond our imagination as he is rejoicing in his “forever home” where no doubt he was welcomed with, “Well done!”
