Glyn Stephens Proctor

October 6, 1949July 14, 2020

Glyn Stephens Proctor was born in Columbia, Tennessee on October 6, 1949. He passed away in Nashville on July 14, 2020 after a short illness.

Glyn is predeceased by his parents, Jeanette and David Proctor, Jr.

Survived by his brother, David (wife, Mary) Proctor, III; sister, Merrill (husband, Thorpe) Weber; nephews, David (wife, Lynn) Proctor, IV and Doug (wife, Amy) Weber; nieces, Josephine (husband, Shelby) Daniels and Beth (husband, Richard) Wells; and many great nieces and nephews.

Glyn was a graduate of Columbia Military Academy and Belmont University.

He never met a stranger and was loved by his many friends. His family knew that birthdays would never pass without a visit and fun gifts. One of his greatest pleasures was golf ball retrieving with his dogs, Boozer and Jack. His wonderful sense of humor and joyous demeanor will be missed.

A family graveside service was held at Mt. Olivet Cemetery in Nashville.

Remember Glyn with a smile, and if so inclined, memorials may be sent to West End United Methodist Church, 2200 West End Avenue, Nashville, TN 37203.

Glyn and I have been friends since 1966 when we met in high school. We went in separate directions after high school but rekindled our friendship after college. I will miss Glyn’s many stories about our high school friends and occasional capers and his stories about growing up in Columbia, TN. RIP Good Friend!!!

Glyn & I attended Cumberland University for a season. We worked things out so we had classes MWF with TTh off. On those off days we would play nine holes at Percy Warner. We called it the 'Country Club Quarts Open' and would play for... you guessed it. Those were fun days.

Through the years it was always a special treat to run into Glyn and share a laugh. There was really nobody quite like Glyn- so good natured. We will all miss him.

Cheers good friend!

Glyn's constant smiles and sounds of his open laughter from several of our adventures back in the '60's are still with me. He could be engagingly serious, but his happy outlook was what made him in his friendship with several of us back in those young days.
My sincerest Condolences to Glyn's family.
