GLENN LEROY SANSBURY WAS A BELOVED FATHER, GRANDFATHER, GREAT GRANDFATHER AND UNCLE WHO LOVED HIS FAMILY VERY MUCH. HE WAS AFFECTIONATELY CALLED "GRANDPA DUCK" BECAUSE OF HIS LOVE AND HIS COLLECTION OF DUCKS. HE LOVED HIS LORD WITH ALL HIS HEART, AND WAS LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING JESUS FACE TO FACE.

DADDY HAD A LOVE FOR FISHING AND WENT AS OFTEN AS HE COULD THROUGHOUT HIS LIFE. HE ALWAYS HAD SUCH JOY RETELLING ME THE ADVENTURES OF HIS TIMES FISHING WITH MY UNCLE GARY AND FRIENDS.

DADDY WORKED FOR THE STATE OF KENTUCKY IN THE REHABILITATION CENTER FOR OVER 36 YEARS BEFORE HE RETIRED. HE WAS EVEN PROUDER THAT HE WAS SOBER FOR 44 YEARS AT THE TIME OF HIS DEATH AND THEN WAS ABLE TO WORK FOR THE SAME PLACE HE WENT TO FOR HIS RECOVERY TO HELP OTHERS DO THE SAME.

ONE OF THE HAPPIEST DAYS OF HIS LIFE (AND MINE ALSO) WAS WHEN HE AND I GOT RECONNECTED AFTER 40 YEARS, AND THEN GOT TO LIVE TOGETHER AND GET TO KNOW EACH OTHER BETTER FOR THE LAST 3 1/2 YEARS.

GLENN WAS BORN TO LEROY KENNETH SANSBURY AND DOROTHY MARGARET THOMAS, ALONG WITH HIS TWIN BROTHER GARY ON JULY 26, 1942 IN COLUMBUS OHIO.

HE LATER MARRIED VICKI ON APRIL 20TH, 1974 AND THEY WERE HAPPILY MARRIED UNTIL VICKI'S DEATH ON APRIL 19TH, 2012, ONE DAY BEFORE THEIR 33RD ANNIVERSARY.
