OBITUARY

Glenn J. Parsons

February 4, 1953September 5, 2019

Glenn J. Parsons, 66, of Charlottesville, died on September 5, 2019. His deep abiding faith in the Lord gave him peace. Glenn’s passion was helping others, whether it was his wife, son, three grandchildren, employees, friends or customers. Glenn always made the time to help any who asked.

Glenn was born in North Carolina to Leff and Veatrice Parsons. Glenn was educated in North Carolina schools, played basketball throughout and basketball was the conduit for his career. The salesforce recruiter for Lowe’s was a fan, hired him directly from school in 1971, trained and was his mentor as Glenn reached his goal to become the #1 salesperson for Lowe’s. In 1987 he decided to start a company, Blue Ridge Builders Supply, with longtime business associates Dale Shumate, Larry Oder and Preston Stallings, who remain close friends. Glenn considered Preston a surrogate father.

In addition to his parents, Glenn was preceded in death by his in-laws Numa and Stella Church which he and they considered Glenn their child. Brothers Jimmy, Tommy, Jerry and Leff, Jr preceded him and sister Cora Sue.

Glenn is survived by his wife, Debra Parsons; his son Jamie, the absolute delight of Glenn’s life, his daughter in law, Kim; his three grands, Taylor, Morgan and J who hold Grandaddy’s heart; his sister and brother in law Dinah and Gary Wyatt, niece Hunter, brother in law Lanny Church brother in law Benny Church; his brother Billy Joe and wife Judy; his sister Carolyn and husband Ewel; his brother Jack and sister Judy. Glenn is survived by all his BRBS associates and employees who are family and his customers that became friends and are considered family.

A funeral service will be held on Wednesday, September 11, 2019, at 1:00 pm, at First Baptist Church on Park Street in Charlottesville. Burial will follow at Monticello Memory Gardens. The family will receive friends on Tuesday, September 10, 2019, from 6-8 pm, at Teague Funeral Service.
