Glenn passed away on Monday, August 14th. He was born March 22, 1948 to George Randolph and Maurine Dickson of Sarepta, Louisiana.
Glenn was a very colorful character and made friends everywhere he went. He was always full of mischief and doing things to get in trouble from his early childhood days. He was typically the teacher’s pet even with his bad behavior! He was very good-looking and a flirt and had the name “Foxy” in high school because he was “sly.”
He was #30 on the football field and an all-around athlete playing basketball and running track for Sarepta High School. He went on to be a professional bull rider and participated in many rodeos. He was very proud to show the spot on his leg where a bull horn had left a hole and his many gunshot wounds from a hunting accident. He loved having interesting stories to tell!
He was always what one would call a workaholic. He started mowing yards even before he could drive and his first official job was with his daddy at International Paper Company. He went on to be a plumber at Fitzgerald Plumbing for many, many years where he was known as “Gomer.” There are so many funny stories about his shenanigans throughout his life that a very large novel could be written!
In recent years, he found his spiritual home at Open Range Fellowship, a cowboy church located in Greenwood, Louisiana. Glenn appeared tough on the outside, but everyone who knew him knows he had a heart of gold.
Glenn is survived by his wife of 28 years, Glenda Phillips Dickson; his daughter Amy Dickson Melvin and husband, Jim; daughter, Kristina Dickson Hatfield and husband, Heath; son, Brandon Dickson and wife, Robin; brother, David Dickson and wife Deborah; sister, Jeanne Dickson Patterson and husband, Charles; nine grandchildren — Hannah Poston, Cole Poston, Gracie Hatfield, Chance Hatfield, Riley Rasbury, Raeleigh Dickson, Casen Coker, Macon Coker, and Aliyah Dickson.
He is preceded in death by his parents; his sister, Janice; and most recently, his daughter, Jamie Lee Dickson.
