Obituary of Danny Lee Glenn

It is with great sadness that the family of Danny Lee Glenn, 66 of Jonesborough, announces his passing after a brief illness on Saturday, April 28th 2018.  He graduated from Virginia Tech and was an avid Hokie fan.  He was owner and operator of Fleet Cleaning Supply, which he started in the early 80’s. Danny was a member of the Masonic Stuart Lodge #224 in Lebanon, VA and the Elks Club. He was also a member of the Bethany United Methodist Church in Lebanon, VA. He was a great son, husband, father, brother, grandfather, and great-grandfather. He cared deeply for others. He was one of a kind, a loyal friend to many, a great role model, selfless, generous, and touched many lives.


He was always there for everybody and was happiest when he was surrounded by family, friends, and his 4 legged fur babies.  He was actively involved with his family, whether it be through Scouting, sports, traveling, fixing things, or just giving advice.  He loved to cook, and enjoyed having every seat at the table filled with people.


He was preceded in death by his parents, James and Ima Jean Meade Glenn; step-mother, Daisy Hammonds Glenn; paternal grandparents, Delmar and Nellie Kate Glenn; maternal grandparents, James and Mary Meade.


Danny will be remembered by his wife of 40 years, Cathy Glenn; sons, Thomas Glenn (Christy Smith), Jeremy Glenn (Elyse) and Ryan Glenn; grandchildren, Roan Hicks (Courtney) and Ani Kincheloe; great-grandson, Riley Hicks; sisters, Jane Hankins (Richard) and Kathy Briggs (Doug); brother, John Glenn (Diane); father-in-law, Donald Grachek; sister-in-law’s, Nancy Hodges (Max), Laurie Grachek; nephews, Tyler Davis, J.J. Davis, Andy Hodges (Kristin), and Ben Hodges (Kaitlin); many treasured cousins; pets, Buddy, Spike, TeeDee and Tobias; grandpups, Manny and Bob.


The family would like to extend their heartfelt appreciation to the clinical staff care team at Holston Valley Medical Center for their loving care and compassion.
