Glen Bible

December 27, 1932October 18, 2020

Clyde Glendon Bible went to be with his Lord and Savior on October 18, 2020 at the age of 87. Glen was born on December 27, 1932 in Burnet, TX to Joseph Clyde Bible and Edna Damron Bible. He attended Burnet High School before joining the Navy, serving his country during the Korean conflict, aboard the USS Patapsco. Glen is survived by his wife and best friend of 65 years, Jo Ann Bible and their 3 daughters: Rebecca and husband Randel Johnson of Oakalla, Glenda and husband Ronnie Cook of Burnet, and Robyn Bible of Lampasas. Glen has been reunited with his son, Glen Jr., in Heaven. Glen also, leaves behind 9 grandchildren and 15 great grandchildren; his sisters Ernestine Piehl of Marble Falls and Shirley Richardson of Zachary, Louisiana; in addition to many cousins, nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his sister Alice Wall of Marble Falls. His involvements include the Burnet Rotary Club where he served as the President from 1999-2000 and the Assistant District Governor for two years. Glen was the second person to be inducted into the Burnet Rotary Club Hall of Fame. During his presidency, he also assisted in the creation of the Interact Club, fueling a lifetime of service for young people, upholding the motto "service above self". Glen served as a Director in the Hill Country Community Foundation for 12 years. He was passionate about the foundation as it provided scholarships to all graduating seniors of Burnet High School. Every April Glen would assist in presenting the graduates with their scholarships. He especially took pride in leading the Seniors in singing the Alma Mater at the closing of the ceremony. In addition, he, along with 5 others, founded the Hill Country 100 Club where he received the Outstanding Member Award, served as Chairman, and was a Lifetime Member. One of his greatest honors was to lead the Invocation and Benediction each year at the 100 Club banquet. Glen faithfully served as a Deacon at the First Baptist Church of Marble Falls for over 20 years where he also was a greeter, usher, choir member and Sunday School teacher. He also attended Wednesday night Bible Study at the First Baptist Church of Burnet. After moving to Lampasas 2 ½ years ago, he became a member of the First Baptist Church of Lampasas where he served as a Deacon. In addition to loving his family and generously serving his community, one of Glen’s greatest passions was to sing- whether he was singing joyfully to his wife, Jody, at home, to the residents of the Marble Falls and Burnet nursing homes, or to the congregation at his local church. Glen loved to serenade his family in song, but not only was he singer, Glen was also a writer. His family will forever cherish his original songs. Jody will especially hold dear the loving poems he penned for her over the years. His favorite song was “Victory in Jesus”, as displayed on his monument, inscribed “Victory in Jesus my Savior Forever.” In order to protect his family and friends from the current pandemic, Glen requested a private graveside service in which his family will come together to honor his life. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Hill Country 100 Club or Hill Country Community Foundation. The family would like to give a special thanks to all who have extended their condolences and kind words. Care has been entrusted to Clements-Wilcox Funeral Home in Burnet.

Glendon “Glen” Bible was my father’s [William C. Bible] first cousin. I didn’t know much about my father’s family except his siblings until I started to research my father’s family. I found that he had MANY first and second cousins in Texas! I live in California and I went to Texas in 1999 to visit most of my father’s cousins. They all were welcoming to this unknown cousin from California. But Glen and Jody were special. They and I communicated regularly for the next 21 years and I am devastated by his passing!

Glen was non-judgmental, kind, and loved his community and his family. I feel very thankful that he considered me one of his family. I will miss his soft, Texas accent coming over my phone. Love you Glendon!

While out of state I learned that our friend Glen was in hospice care. My response was tender tears for him and Jo. When I was told about his passing, my response was a big smile as I imagined my George greeting Glen upon arrival at that Mansion Over the Hilltop. The Bible family has much to celebrate, as do we who remember this great personality of a godly man.

I did not know Mr. Bible, except through his daughter and son-in-law, Glenda and Ronnie Cook. They both spoke lovingly of him, what a fine man of faith to his Savior, and devotion to his family. My heartfelt condolences to his wife,, children, extended family, and circle of friends.
