June 29, 1943-May 16, 2016
Glenn was 72, of Bryan, Texas, when the Lord called him home to be with his father, Warren Wood Ferguson, his mother, Carrie Jean Goodman Ferguson, and his sister, Barbara Jean Cockerham. A memorial service is scheduled for 1 PM on Saturday, May 28, 2016 at St. Luke’s UMC in Bryan, Texas at 2700 W Villa Maria, Bryan, TX, 77807. Visitation and sharing of stories of Glenn will follow the memorial service. Cremation services are in the care of Callaway-Jones Funeral Home and Crematory.
Glenn was born in Corsicana, Texas and raised in Mertens, Texas by a pipe liner father and homemaker mother, roaming Richland Creek and surrounding fields and farms. He attended Frost High School and played football and baseball. After graduation, Glenn attended Sam Houston State in Huntsville. In 1972, Glenn married the love of his life, Linda Earle Stanek of Bryan. After a long career in the petrochemical business, Glenn became a technician for TEEX at the old Bryan Field, now, A&M Riverside Campus.
Upon retirement, Glenn found an interest for golf and could be found most sunny days on the course, where he made many, many friends. He also had an earnest fondness for Aggie women’s basketball and held season tickets for many years. He and Linda made many fabulous memories courtside. Glenn also yearned for historical facts related to Texas history and delighted in long explorations to west Texas, the valley, and beyond.
Glenn was truly a people person and never missed an opportunity to make a personal connection with absolutely anyone who was near. A genuine love for fellow mankind was evident in his smile and actions; and, the opportunity to lend a helping hand indeed resulted in true Christian elation for Glenn. Family and friends who new him well referred to him simply, as Fergie.
Glenn is survived by his beautiful wife, Linda, Two sons, Greg Ferguson of Bryan, and Russ Ferguson of Mont Belvieu, two loving daughters-in-law Lorie Ferguson and Tammy Ferguson, respectively. Glenn also has five grandchildren: Chris, Jarred and wife Amanda, Sean, Josh and his wife Jennifer, and Colby. His five great-grandchildren, Chadney, Chloe, Rosie, Macy, and Emma will miss his presence in their lives greatly.
The family would like to thank, in advance, for memorial donations, in lieu of flowers, being sent to either Hospice Brazos Valley at 502 W 26th St. Bryan, Texas, 77803; or Children’s Book Project at, BCRSP, PO Box 6693, Bryan, TX, 77805, in Glenn Ferguson’s remembrance.
