Glenny was a Christian man who was raised to never give up. He was a hard worker who always put forth all his effort in order to assure perfection. Glenny was a machinist and retired from Algiers in Garden Grove, California after forty years. After retirement, he went on to work at Street Performance in Mena as well as run several different businesses at different times. His true passion was working on and collecting antique clocks. He was said to be very skilled at tinkering on just about anything, but with clocks his meticulous work ethic really showed. Glenny also enjoyed watching westerns, woodworking, country music and small engine repair. At one time, he made aviaries and cared for many different kinds of birds. His family was very important to him, and he loved them all deeply. Glenny was a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother and a great friend and will be missed by all who knew him.

He is preceded in death by his parents; and one sister, Neoma Simpson.
