Glenn was born May 7, 1937, in Moberly to Glenn Braxton and Letha Mae Hamblin Timbrook. He was the oldest of four boys; his brother Sam Timbrook of Columbia survives. He was preceded in death by his parents; two brothers, Leonard Eugene Timbrook and Robert Harrison Timbrook; a stepsister, Emma Jane Kirkendoll; and a stepbrother, Braxton Timbrook.
On Aug. 2, 1958, he was married to Barbara Jean Marcum, who survives at their home in Columbia.
Glenn and Barbara’s six children survive: daughter Alice Corinne Timbrook and her son, Nicholas Vern-Glenn, of Columbia; son David Jay Timbrook and family, LeeAnn (Tippins), West Glenn, Jenny (Zink), Majestah (Markin) and Justin, all of the state of California; daughter Pamela (Jeff) Leeper and family, Brandon Glen and Briana (Edler), all of rural Callaway County; son Stephen Glenn (Heather) Timbrook and family, Alyssa, MacKenzie, Zacharie and Reagan, all of Hannibal; son Andrew Glenn (Medea) Timbrook and their daughter, Renee, of Hannibal; daughter Devon Stevens and her son, Marcum Everett Glenn, of Bethany, Missouri. Also surviving are four great-grandchildren (Sawyer, Vanessa, Axel and Madelynn) and numerous nieces and nephews.
During his lifetime, he was employed as a manger at the MU Technical Education Services Department, circulation manager for the Fulton Daily Sun Gazette and, when he retired, a salesman at Payless Cashways Home Improvement Center in Columbia.
Glenn was a true people-person who never met a stranger, and it was his great joy to sit and visit with family and the many friends he made. He will be sadly missed by family and the many friends who knew and loved him during his 83 years.
