Duke McCreight Glenn
December 4, 1921 - November 14, 2018
Duke McCreight Glenn, beloved father of Robert, Jacqueline, and Jocelyn, went to be with the Lord on November 14, 2018. Mack was born on December 4, 1921 in Call, TX. He was a descendant of Stephen Williams, Thomas C. (Goldie) Holmes, and other patriots from the American Revolution to the Siege of Bexar.
He was a Deacon in the First Baptist Church of Buda, having first been ordained in Blessing, TX. He remained very active until illness prevented further participation. He was a member of the Creedmoor Chapter Order of the Eastern Star and a member of the Nathan Corley Order of the Eastern Star as well as a Master Mason at the Nathan Corley Masonic Lodge of Kirbyville and the Onion Creek Masonic Lodge, Austin, TX.
Mack was a World War II veteran in the United States Army-Air Corp from December 14, 1940 to October 20, 1945. He served in Burma, India, and Puerto Rico. While stationed in Puerto Rico, he met and married Norma, his lovely war bride. Upon honorable discharge, he worked for Sun Oil Company for 36 years in Texas and Louisiana, on land and offshore.
The family is deeply grateful to Peggy Culp and her husband Bob, who provided loving care in support for the family during the last 10 years of Mack’s life, and to members of Heart to Heart Hospice.
Survivors include son, Robert M. Glenn and wife Linda of League City, TX; daughter, Jacqueline Willis of Creedmoor, TX; daughter, Jocelyn Henderson and husband Daniel of Edgewood, NM. He is also survived by six grandchildren; twelve great-grandchildren; four great-great-grandchildren; a sister, Tony Elliott; and sister-in-law, Ferrel Ann Glenn.
He was preceded in death by his beautiful wife, Norma C. Glenn; son-in-law, Gordon L. Willis; parents, Herschel and Georgia West Glenn; brothers, J.E. Hooks, Leo Glenn, and Phillip Glenn; and sisters, Imogene McDaniels and Mandy Dickason.
