GLENN EDEN SIPE, 68 years of age, died 24 March 2009 in his home at 1958 Kirby Road, Memphis, TN 38119, after a long illness. Glenn was born to his parents, George William Sipe and Elizabeth Kearney Sipe, on 26 November 1940, in Memphis, TN. A graduate of East High School and Memphis State University, Glenn retired from Mutual of New York as field underwriter and a lifetime qualifying member of the Million Dollar Round Table. Rebuilding a wide variety of Italian and European cars set him on a path that would eventually make him known as an authority in the car world for his in-depth knowledge, ability to find rare, hard to find cars, and/or manufacture of hard to find parts. Glenn also continued his passion through racing antique cars in the Southeast Vintage Racing Association. As Glenn's health diminished, he lost the ability to enjoy these passions in life. Though limited physically in his final years, he continued to share his spirit with friends and others in the industry through friendship, advice and consultation. Glenn was a member of The British Car Club, Sigma Alpha Epsilon Fraternity, and a frequent charitable giver to St. Jude, IRIS, and the Fraternal Order of Police. Predeceased by his wife, Anita Anne Sipe, 6 September 2001, and his brother, William E. Sipe, Glenn Sipe is survived by his sons, Kevin Kearney Sipe and William Christopher Sipe. He is also survived by daughter-in-law, Jennifer Sipe, and two wonderful grandchildren, Brandon and Aiden, nephew, Larry Johnson. Glenn unfortunately passed before the birth of his third grandchild, Madaline. Visitations will be held from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on 26 March 2009 at Memorial Park, 5668 Poplar Avenue, Memphis, TN, and a second visitation will be from 9:30-10:30 a.m., 30 March at Second Presbyterian Church located at 4055 Poplar Ave., Memphis, TN, with the funeral service at 10:30 a.m. A reception for friends and family will be at the residence following the service.
