In Memory of
Glenn Wade Anthony
-

Glenn Wade Anthony was born January 13, 1942, in Galveston, Texas, the son of Truman Dennis and Garner Walterine Anthony.  Glenn went to be with his Lord and Savior on June 15, 2020. 

Glenn graduated from Ball High School in Galveston in 1960 and attended Texas Lutheran College in Seguin, TX.   After Hurricane Carla hit Galveston in September 1961, Glenn enlisted in the United States Air Force on November 3, 1961.  Glenn proudly served his country and spent time overseas in Germany and Pakistan.  Throughout his life, he enjoyed sharing his service experiences with family and friends.  After his discharge on August 31, 1965, he returned to Texas Lutheran College, where he was to meet the love of his life, Linda Ruth Johnson.  They were married at Randolph Air Force Base in Chapel One on August 2, 1969 and celebrated their 50th Wedding Anniversary in 2019. 

 

Glenn had a passion for learning and attended The University of Texas at Austin and the University of Houston.  Throughout his life, Glenn never relented on his search for knowledge and acquired a vast library that included books on theology, history, health, poetry, writing, trading the market, and photography.  He was a man of diverse talents, knowledge, and experience.  He was also a natural storyteller and an accomplished writer and photographer.  Always the perfectionist, Glenn did years of research and worked on the life of Hannibal, which was a work in progress at his passing.  He photographed over 100 weddings and produced a collection of photographs called “Homage to Nature”.  One of his photographs was auctioned off to support the Houston Museum of Fine Arts.  Glenn loved studying the Holy Bible and delving into the original languages of Hebrew and Greek. 

 

Glenn was diagnosed with mild dementia in his past two years of life, which progressed rapidly after he suffered injuries sustained from a car crash.  Although the disease took away the use of his language and movement, it never ceased to take away his sweet smile.

 

Glenn was a devoted husband and supported his wife in all of her musical activities.  He found great enjoyment in listening in on the lessons of her piano students and attending recitals.  It was always a pleasure for him to accompany Linda to the events and share in the success of her students.  Glenn enjoyed Linda’s participation in the Cypress Creek Music Teachers Association as well as listening to Linda prepare the music for the worship services at Grace Bible Church of Houston.  Glenn’s gift for creative writing helped Linda when he composed 4 verses for each of her two original Christmas carols in only a few minutes.  Glenn and Linda were certainly a team – through work and throughout life. 

 

Glenn is survived by his wife Linda, his brother George and wife Patty Anthony, three sisters:  Eunice Anthony, Cleesta and husband David Augustin, and Annette Homer, as well as numerous nephews and nieces.  Glenn was loved by many and will be forever remembered in the hearts of those who knew him.

 

Interment will take place in the Houston National Cemetery. 

 

A memorial service for family and friends honoring Glenn’s life is scheduled for Wednesday, June 24, 2020 at 2:00 p.m.  in the Sanctuary of Grace Bible Church of Houston, 13700 Schroeder Road, Houston, TX 77070.  A reception will follow in the Fellowship Hall.

I met Mr & Mrs Anthony a couple of years ago and I was instantly transported to a world of unconditional love! I met them through my occupation as a licensed broker but they quickly became family. The small time I had to know Mr Anthony was a gift! Amazing stories that will live on through myself and my fiance, Gerald Banks.
