Glenn loved his family and being surrounded by all his grandchildren. His Susie Q was the love of his life. He enjoyed fishing with his best friend Chuck Chapman. Even the crappy fish in Reidsville Lake will miss our Papa.
He retired from the Boilermakers after 36 years of service. During his time as Boilermaker he loved traveling for work and has countless friends and brothers all over the country. He never met a stranger and was always willing to share a story to make you laugh.
In retirement he and Susan enjoyed traveling and Strolls in their corvette. He was passionate about gardening and generously shared the fruits of labor. His hobbies included searching for Indian artifacts and arrowheads. He loved taking care of his beloved cats boots, hobo and tabby. He was preceded in death by his father, Bruce Wilson and his brother, Fred Wilson.
Survivors are his wife, Susan Saunders Wilson; son, Thomas Glenn Wilson and wife, Laura; grandchildren, Haedyn, Levi, Sawyer, Scarlett and Madi Wilson and Emily and Dylan Viers; mother, Pearl Robinson; brother, Sim Wilson and wife, Pat and sisters Sandra Califf and Brenda James.
