The man credited with paving Warren County has passed away. Former Road Superintendent Harold Glenn died Saturday morning at Saint Thomas Rutherford Hospital in Murfreesboro after an eight-day illness. He was 84.
“I think he will be best remembered for doing away with gravel roads in Warren County,” said Glenn’s son and successor as road superintendent, Levie Glenn. “That was his promise when he ran for office and he made good on it.”
Glenn served four terms of office as road superintendent. He ran on several occasions for the office before winning his first term in 1994. He was then voted back into office by large margins until he chose not to run again in 2010 after 16 years in office. His son, Levie, is now serving his second full term in office, following in his father’s footsteps. Levie Glenn served as assistant superintendent for many years under his father.
“He was a dedicated, hard-working road superintendent,” Levie Glenn said. “He loved working for the people of Warren County.”
In addition to serving as road superintendent, Glenn was also a longtime member of the Tennessee County Highway Officials Association with other county road superintendents. He also had a small farm where he raised cattle.
Mr. Glenn enjoyed watching and playing sports and was a member of the senior bowling group here. Earlier in life, he was a licensed referee with the TSSAA.
Arrangements were incomplete at press time. High Funeral Home will be handling funeral arrangements for Mr. Glenn.
Funeral and visitation times will be posted on www.southernstandard.com once they are finalized.
