Born on November 2, 1934, in Miami, FL, son of the late John W. Crum and the late Edith C. Crum. Glen was a veteran of the US Air Force and served during the Korean war. He worked for Delta Airlines as an airline mechanic and retired in 1989 after 25 ½ years with the company. He was a member of New Beginning Baptist Church. Glen was a talented string musician and enjoyed playing the mandolin at church. Most importantly, he was a follower of Christ and was proud to share the Gospel with anyone he met. He constantly prayed for the salvation of the ones he loved and will be dearly missed by all. He was also preceded in death by a grandson, Jerry Murphy; and brother, Ben B. Crum.

Survivors include his wife of 64 years, Elsie R. Crum; daughters, Becky J. Leggett (Gary) and Brenda S. Murphy; sons, Abner B. Crum (Nita), Burll B. Crum (Larisa) and Cleve B. Crum (Susie); 10 grandchildren; and 15 great-grandchildren.
