Obituary


Glen Arthur Cown
01/25/60 - 10/01/21Born in Terre Haute, IN

Praise God! Praise God! Glen is rejoicing with loved ones already crossed over into Gloryland. His Mama and Daddy. His brothers and sister. My Mama & Daddy. So so many.... Heaven is having an amazing celebration! Oh the singing and shouting that must be going on. Not to mention the scouting out for the best fishing spots lol []Preceded in death by his parents James Wesley Cown & Dorothy Margaret (Franklin) Cown. His siblings James Edward Cown, Sue Ann Cown, and Robert Wesley Cown, Sr. His remaining siblings are William Franklin Cown (Mary) Dorothy Cown, Viola Fern Hunter, and Betty Nasser (Ed) and several nieces and nephews. It goes without saying Glen's pride and joy were his children and grandchildren (monkeys) and furbabies. Vanessa Barlow (Donnie) and monkey Kimberly Barlow Melissa Tingley and monkeys Allen Smith & William Tingley Brandi Lemmons (Matthew) and monkeys Brendan, Makenna & Gavin Lemmons Christopher DeLisle (Regina) and monkeys Kylie & Lucy DeLisle Droopy Dog, Penny, Greyson & Tank As well as many special friends and family that he cared for deeply.
Finally, Glen leaves behind his heart with his best friend, soul mate and wife, Coni (DeLisle) Cown which she will cherish for the rest of her time on earth until they meet again in heaven.
We will all forever remember Glen Cown with memories and love as the greatest Husband, Papaw, Dad, Brother, Uncle, Friend and much, much more. Glen never asked why, but always boldly proclaimed "God's Got This!" His faith was inspirational and life-changing for many. A love that shall be without end.
His courageous battle with Glioblastoma Brain cancer was conducted with dignity and grace, surrounded by those he loved so much.
Like the life he lived, so fearless and brave, he confronted the journey he faced knowing his ultimate reward would be to rest in the arms of Jesus. His purpose, was to tell people that Jesus loved them, just the way they are. Jesus just wants them to receive His love. It's just that simple.
Glen's days were filled with endless activity either taking care of someone, completing a project for his beloved Coni, or running after a "Monkey". He never met a stranger. Animals and children sensed his gentle spirit and he made friends easily. Glen truly was one of a kind.
Family times with camping and fishing will be treasured like no other, along with his endless "Dad" jokes. He loved animals and people on equal terms. His quest for knowledge was never through, and he always had a listening ear which was fine tuned as he loved to hear and share a good story or two. For example: "What do you call a fish wearing a bowtie?" "Sofishticated
His memory will always be treasured. Even though we are now separated, a piece of his adventure remains with us all and his simple but impactful life celebrated.
A Celebration of a Life Well Lived will be held at New Hope Community Church, 3947 Riley Road, where Glen served as a member of the board, assisted with sound and has attended for several years. Service will be at 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, October 9, 2021. Dinner will be served in the fellowship hall immediately following the service.
