Lenville Glenn Coffman was born June 1, 1920 to Goldie (Webb) and Clay Coffman in Highlandville, Missouri. He departed this life February 4, 2011 in Perryton, TX at the age of 90 years, 8 months and 3 days.
Shortly after Glenn graduated from high school, he joined the United States Army and was stationed at Ft. Bliss, Texas. He was a member of the Anti-aircraft Battalion during World War II, serving in France, Belgium, England and Germany. During this time he was awarded the good conduct medal, World War II Victory Ribbon, American Theater Ribbon, EAME Theater Ribbon, and four Bronze Service Stars. Like most members of “the Greatest Generation,” Glenn only talked about his service to his country when he was asked specific questions.
He was discharged on December 5, 1945, at Camp Chaffee, Arkansas. As fast as he could get there, he rushed to Lynchburg, VA where he married his Southern belle sweetheart, Edna Campbell, on December 11.
In 1946 Glenn fulfilled the promise he had made to the Lord in the heat of the battle. “Get me home, Lord, and I’ll live for you.” In Wainright, OK he was baptized in Jesus’ name and received the baptism of the Holy Ghost. From that time until he was called home to Glory, Glenn Coffman was a model Christian.
To Glenn and Edna were born two daughters, Margie and Louise. Edna preceded Glenn in death on September 20, 1991.
On December 5, 1992 Glenn was united in marriage with Marcella Hoselton, with whom he spent the last 18 years.
Preceding him in death were his first wife Edna, his parents Clay and Goldie Coffman, and two sisters, Lodema Kelley and Millie Elliott.
