James (Jim) Wilbur Glenn Sr
James (Jim) Wilbur Glenn Sr. of Yoncalla, OR peacefully entered into well deserved rest in the early evening of May 31st, 2017 at his daughters home in Buckeye, AZ. He is survived by his wife and Love of his life, Roxie Glenn; 2 daughters, Lorie Kaufmann and Sheri Harris; 3 sons, Jim Jr., Ken, and Terry Glenn; a brother, Robert Glenn; a sister, Judy Cole; 16 grandchildren, including Kayla Sebastian of Drain; Taylor McDaniels and Jamie Glenn, both of Yoncalla; and Kenny Glenn Jr. and Carrie Kenny, both of Eugene; and 29.5 great grandchildren. He was preceded by a sister, Sharon Hamm and daughter-in-law, Julie Kirkpatrick.
Jim worked as a meat processor with the family business in his younger life, followed by a distinguished and well respected 25 year training career in the Horse Racing industry, where he not only saddled horses to victory but, more importantly, helped many people to get out of the “starting gate” with sound advice and a “leg up” when necessary.
Services celebrating Jim’s life will take place on Friday June 9th at 11 a.m. at the Church of Christ in Yoncalla, OR. He will then be laid to rest with Military Honors, at the National Cemetery in Roseburg, OR at 2 p.m. Immediately following that, a reception will be held at the Glenn Ranch in Yoncalla.
The family asks that in lieu of sending flowers, a donation be made in Jim’s name to Hospice of Havasu’s Polidori House, a non-profit organization that very respectfully took care of Julie Kirkpatrick.
