Charles 'Glen' Kennedy

July 23, 1934 — February 3, 2014

Charles Glen Kennedy, son of the late Joseph Daniel and Perly Mae (Freeman) Kennedy, was born on July 23, 1934 in Douglas County, Missouri, and departed this life on Monday, February 3, 2014 at his home east of Mtn. Grove, Missouri, at 79 years of age.
Glen lived in Douglas County until the age of five and moved with his family to Texas County. He attended the Walnut Grove School. He was united in marriage to Virginia Reed on September 10, 1956 in Mtn. Grove, Missouri. Three children, Glenda, Edward “Buddy,” and Paul, were born to this union.
