Kenneth ‘Kenny’ L. Glenn

Kenneth “Kenny” Glenn passed away peacefully at home on Saturday, July 27, 2013.

Born Feb. 15, 1940, to Kenneth Glenn, Sr., and Elaine (Mapes) Glenn in Denver, Colorado, he was the oldest of two children. He was a lifetime resident of Colorado residing in the Glenwood Springs, Aspen, and Grand Junction areas. He was a licensed surveyor and owned “Surveyit” until his retirement in 2007.

Kenny lived no ordinary life. Generous to a fault, upbeat and willing to explore life’s boundaries, he pushed life to the limits and enjoyed every moment of it. That desire took him to 19,000 feet on Mt. Orizaba in Mexico, to the jungles in Costa Rica, and to the top of Mt. Elbert on a New Years Day. He also endured raft explorations from the Colorado River to the Grand Canyon. Kenny played, partied, and searched out life in his world, which was wherever he lived or visited.

He was married to Sandy (Moore) Dix and had two children, Bobbie and Christy. His daughter, Christy Buescher survives him. He is preceded in death by his parents; his younger brother, George Glenn; and son, Bobbie.

Ken was a true friend to all who knew him. While he may no longer walk the planes of this Earth, his touch, feel and memory will long exist in the minds and stories of those of us whose paths he managed to cross. He was an unforgettable companion who could engage you in conversation for hours.

A celebration of Ken’s life will be held on Friday, Aug. 2, 2013, at 3 p.m. at Callahan-Edfast Mortuary. Please join us after the services at the Blue Moon in Ken’s honor.

Memorial contributions can be made in the name of “Christy Buescher” in care of the Huntington’s Disease Society of America.
