OBITUARY

Charles Glenn Denny

April 29, 1950October 6, 2019

Charles “Glenn” Denny, beloved husband, father, brother, and long-time resident of Minden, LA, passed into glory after a full and joyous life, on October 6, 2019.

Funeral Services will be held at 2:30 pm on October 11, 2019 at Hill Crest Memorial Funeral Home at 601 Highway 80 East in Haughton, LA. Reverend Skip Rainbolt of Fillmore Baptist Church will officiate. Interment will follow at Hill Crest Memorial Cemetery. Visitation will be from 1:00 pm until the time of the service.

Glenn was born in Jonesville, LA to Henry and Audrey Denny on April 29, 1950. He went to school in Ferriday, LA. He married his wife, Mary Dragland Denny, on December 28, 1974. Glenn earned two bachelor’s degrees and worked as a computer programmer, eventually becoming the Lead Information Technology Analyst for Delta Pathology Group in Shreveport, LA. Glenn had a mischievous sense of humor, a sparkle in his eye, and a love for music, history and nature. He was constructive and creative – Glenn didn’t just play musical instruments, he built them! He drove tractors, fixed cars, built barns, and killed snakes with his pistol. He loved cinderblocks (and all things concrete!) He also loved the mountains, hill country, and lakes. He was deeply loved by the Lord and was especially devoted to his grandchildren and his great-grandchild. He will be deeply missed by his friends, family, and all who knew him.

Glenn is survived by his wife, Mary Denny; his children, Shelly Denny McLain, Angie Denny Anders, and Eric Denny; his sister Laura Marguerite Crothers; brother James Henry Denny and wife Brenda; grandchildren Hannah Patterson and husband Daniel; Reagan Spencer and husband Tim; Christian, Baylee and Garrett McLain; Coen and Ayla Denny; great granddaughter Elinor Patterson, and numerous beloved nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his parents, Henry and Audrey Denny, and brother-in-law Albert Crothers.

Pallbearers will be Eric Denny, Coen Denny, Christian McLain, Garrett McLain, Tim Spencer, John Michael Dragland, Joshua Dragland and Andy Dragland.

My condolences to the family. Glenn and I worked together in the IT department and shared a few laughs together. He was a good, caring person and will be missed by all who knew him. I will not be able to attend the services but please know the family is in my thoughts and prayers.

I have been at Delta Pathology for over 20 years and have had the pleasure to work with Glenn. He was always very helpful because I would call him on numerous occasions with "dumb" questions about the computer. He would laugh at me ( not in bad way) and told me it was my "aura" that caused my computer issues. I recently spoke with him a few weeks ago and he asked me how much longer I was going to work at Delta. He was so cheerful that day and once again we laughed about my "aura" with the computer.
I will miss his laugh, knowledge and insight.
My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time.
