Obituary for Farley Paul Glenn
Farley Paul Glenn, 55, returned to his heavenly home on January 7, 2015, unexpectedly while residing in Napa, CA. His devotion to his music, family and his belief in God ultimately gave him peace. Farley was born to Van Glenn Jr, retired Air Force MSGT, originally from Rusk, TX and Charlotte Lee Bartlow Glenn, a Baptist Sunday School Teacher of 30 plus years from Berkeley, CA who also worked in retail for over 33 years and was a homemaker. Farley was the first born of four children, born on the military base in Atwater, CA March 20, 1959. Being in a family that was in the Air Force, Farley lived all over the world, and made friends everywhere he went. He was immersed in the Baptist church community and accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior at the age of twelve years old. He was a talented musician who played many different instruments, including saxophone and piano. His love was his guitar. He began playing guitar at ten years old. Farley played in many bands throughout the years. He played in the US Army Band in Korea, a band called the Blue Zone, and The Farley Glenn Band. Farley loved music more than anything and even wrote, produced and sang songs that he performed live for the community. Farley completed courses in music theory at Solano Community College. Playing gave him freedom and peace of mind. He was a true artist and musician. Farley had an infectious laugh and a smile that could light up any room. He always made lemonade out of lemons and absolutely loved rock and roll. He adored music artists like Legend Jimmy Hendrix and the band U2. In 1978, Farley enlisted in the US Army, in which he served a full term and was honorably discharged shortly after meeting his wife, Sun Hui Sien Glenn on tour in Seoul, Korea. Farley was somewhat of a nomad and chased his dream to be a famous rock star up until his last hour. Farley was a big kid at heart. His nickname from the family was “Guss”, but he was known as the “Wind Child” in the music world. In his last days he spoke of his close relationship with Jesus and was making preparations to perform live in his band at the mall in Napa, CA. He is dearly missed by his loved ones, who celebrate the fact he is at peace after his journey here on earth. He is survived by his father and mother, Van and Charlotte Glenn; daughter Vanessa Lee Glenn; brother Anthony Glenn; sister Brigitte Clark; nephew Brandon Clark; niece Breanne Clark; grandnephew Damien Clark; and a host of aunts, uncles, cousins and close family friends. He was preceded in death by Lloyd Peter Glenn. Now that Farley has transitioned into Glory, music without him will never sound the same to us. His memory will live on forever, not only in our hearts but with every musical note played. The family would like to thank each and every one of you for your love, support and prayers during this difficult time as your love is greatly appreciated.
