William Glen Norman was born to James Perry "J.P." and Verna Lea (Magness) Norman on Aug. 28, 1918, in Temple, and departed this life in Wichita Falls, Texas, on Saturday, May 12, 2018, at the age of 99 years, 8 months and 15 days.
Glen was raised and attended school in the Grgg community northeast of Temple, graduating from Temple High School in 1937. He married Myrtle Audene Dikes on Dec. 6, 1941, and to the union two children, Glenna and Jerry, were born. They were married 76 years. The family made their home north of Temple where they were engaged in farming for many years. They eventually retired and moved to the southside of town in 1981.
Glen was an active member of First Baptist Church for more than 60 years, serving as a deacon since his ordination in 1965 and taught the men's Sunday School class for 10 years. He also held the position of Sunday School Superintendent several times. Glen and his wife loved to travel with family and friends, but more than traveling, he loved the friendships and stories shared with friends. He loved farming and was a walking history book of the Temple area. The couple has made their home in Wichita Falls, Texas, for the past couple of years to be near their son.
Survivors include his wife, of Wichita Falls, Texas; his daughter and son-in-law, Glenna and Mike Noret, San Angelo, Texas; his son and daughter-in-law, Jerry and Chanda Norman, Wichita Falls, Texas; three grandchildren, Kevin Trahan, Melisa Wolfe and her husband Chris, and Ryan Trahan; seven great-grandchildren, Christina Wolfe, Grayson Wolfe, Katlin Wolfe, Kylee Jo Trahan, Kaci Trahan, Jorden Trahan and Logan Richards; two sisters-in-law, Nadine Booher and Clytee Burton; other relatives and many special friends.
