Although he was raised in the Lutheran faith, he was a longtime member of Tenth Street United Methodist Church in Taylor and was a retired chiropractor with over 57 years of practice and service.

Glenn was preceded in death 31 years ago by his loving wife Fran. Glenn was a devoted father to his daughter Ann E. Lee of Conroe and his son Randy M. Lee and wife Sherry of Austin and proud grandfather to Dallas A. Lee of Austin.

He is also survived by his loving sister Doris Goodell and husband Chuck of Omaha, Nebraska and numerous nieces and nephews.

Glenn learned the life-long virtues of hard work, love of family and an unwavering faith in the Lord from his Norwegian immigrant family. Norwegian was his first language; he only began learning English in first grade.

He served his country with honor, bravery and distinction as a member of the US Army Air Corp, 5th Air force, 317th Troop Carrier Group, 40th Squadron during World War II.  As a flight commander and pilot in command of a C-47 troop transport in the Pacific Theatre he fought in the battles of Leyte Gulf, Luzon, and Corregidor, earning various air medals and commendations.  After he was honorably discharged in 1946, he continued to serve his country in the Air Force Reserves as a Lt. Colonel until 1968.

After graduating from Augustana College in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, and attending the University of Texas at Austin, Glenn graduated also from Texas Chiropractic College in San Antonio in 1950.  He opened his first practice of chiropractic in McAllen, Texas.  

He relocated in 1953 to Austin to help his ailing father-in-law operate a home construction company.  Ten years later in 1963 the family moved to Taylor in order for Glenn to follow his passion and open Lee Chiropractic Clinic.

“Doc” as he was affectionately called by his close friends served as the Williamson County Veterans’ Service Officer for over 31 years, helping veterans receive their service benefits.  

He was a member of the Taylor Optimist Club, a life member of the VFW Post  No. 4476, the American Legion Post No. 39, Taylor Masonic Lodge No. 484, and a long time local board member of the Boy Scouts of America.  

For many years he was one-half of the bass section of the Tenth Street United Methodist Sanctuary Choir.  His passion was taping Sunday services to share with persons in the community who were unable to attend their Sunday worship.  In addition, Glenn was a daily regular at the “McDonald’s coffee klatch and crossword puzzle club.”  

Visitation will be 6:30-8 p.m., Wednesday, July 13 at Providence Funeral Home, 807 Carlos Parker Blvd, in Taylor.  Celebration of Life Services are set for 10:30 a.m., Thursday, July 14 at Providence with the Reverend Dr. Travis Summerlin officiating.

Glenn’s family would like to extend their most sincere appreciation to the outstanding staff of Westminster Healthcare Center in Austin and especially to the nurses and CNAs of the 700 hall for their dedicated service and friendship.  They also thank the complete attention and care provided by the staff of Hospice Austin.
