Panama City Beach
MERIDETH, GLENN, 46, of Louisville, passed away unexpectedly on Monday, October 5, 2009, while vacationing in Panama City Beach, FL, with his family.
Throughout his life, Glenn spent his career in serving the public. He was a deputy sheriff with the Jefferson County Sheriff's Department for the past 14 years. He served on the board for the FOP Lodge 25 for six years - two years as president. Glenn served as a major with the Lincolnshire Police Department. He was also a security officer at St. Anthony Medical Center and was an Army Ranger with the 101st Airborne Division.
Glenn was a lifetime member of Northtown United Baptist Church where he joined by experience and baptism in August 1974.
Glenn's quick wit and wonderful sense of humor never left him with a lack for words. He knew exactly what to say at the right time to get a laugh. His smile lit up a room. He was the kind of man you were always happy to see and sad to see go. He lived his life to the fullest.
He loved his country, community and of course, most of all, his family. He was a devoted and loving husband and father, a wonderful uncle and beloved brother.
He is preceded in death by his parents, Trumon and Ercell Merideth.
Glenn is survived by his wife, Barbara Threedouble Merideth; a daughter, Heather Wesselman, sons; Joshua and Matthew Merideth; brothers, Ed Oller (Mary) and Steve Merideth (Loretta); a sister, Shirley Bratcher (Bill), a host of extended family members and friends and two granddaughters, Rebekah and Claire Wesselman, whom he adored.
Throughout his life and years of service to his country and community, he has touched countless lives. For those nearest and dearest to his heart, he leaves an emptiness that no other man could fill and an ache that will never cease.
The family would like to express their unending gratitude to the Jefferson County Sheriff's Department, FOP Lodge 25, friends at Kindred Hospitals of Louisville and the entire staff of Bosse Funeral Home.
Visitation will be Sunday, October 11, 2009, from noon-8 p.m. at Bosse Funeral Home with a service provided by the Jefferson County Sheriff's Department at 7 p.m. A private service and burial will be at noon Monday at Northtown United Baptist with the Jefferson County Sheriff's Department presiding.
