Glenn Fields Parker was born in Odessa, Texas on September 28, 1936, to Sam and Elsie Parker. From six years old to eighteen, Glenn grew up in Iraan, Texas. He received a music scholarship to Tarleton State College to play the French horn in Stephenville, Texas, where he met the love of his life, Frances McChristial. They were married on March 12, 1957. They lived in Carlsbad, New Mexico for two years, and then moved to Hobbs, New Mexico, where he began his career at Continental Carbon Company as a quality control lab technician. After two years, he transferred to Bakersfield, California with the same company and worked twenty more years. In 1981, the company closed its doors and Glenn went to work for Zalco Labs. In 1991 he went to work for an entomologist, Alan Butterfield, checking soil and plants for diseases and insects. Glenn retired in 2003. Glenn loved his family, enjoyed fishing, trips to the beach, traveling in the U.S. and Europe with dear friends Bob and Ineta Kiser and Bob and Peggy Himenes. He also had a love of astronomy. He was amazed by God’s creation of the stars and galaxies and would memorize as many facts as he possibly could. Most of all, Glenn loved his Lord and savior, Jesus Christ, and was eagerly looking forward to seeing Him face to face. He was a member of Central Church of Christ since 1961, where he served as a deacon and as an elder for many years. He graduated to heaven the morning of April 17, 2018. Glenn is survived by his wife Frances, his four children, Cheryl, David, Cari, and Danny, as well as grandchildren, Brandon, Alycia, Carol, Josh, Kailey, Hanna and great grandchildren, Londyn, Braden, Bailynn, and Aurora. He is also survived by his sisters, Joyce, Sammye and Carol. We will all miss him dearly and look forward to reuniting with him in heaven
