Glynn Morgan passed from this life and entered into light on February 3, 2020. The family will host a time of fellowship and remembrance from 6:30 pm to 8:00 pm Thursday, February 6, 2020, at Lake Ridge Chapel and Memorial Designers. We will celebrate his life of 85 years at 2:00 pm on Friday, February 7, 2020, at Broadway Church of Christ. Friends are invited to share memories and expressions of sympathy for the family to cherish in the area below the obituary.

Glynn Morgan was born on October 27, 1934 in Mitchell County, Texas to Blaine and Birdie Morgan, a long hoped for son following three older sisters. He graduated from Colorado City High School in 1952 and earned a business degree from Texas Tech University in 1960. He was a member of the Kappa Sigma fraternity and was an active alumnus. He served in the U.S. Army from 1957-1959 and was stationed in Germany. He liked to say it was a perfect time to be in the Army because no one was mad at anyone right then. He was very proud of his service and avidly supported the military.

Glynn married Louise Rather in 1961. She died of cancer in 1977, leaving him with four young children. In 1981 he married a young widow, Jan Lewis Stout, and they blended two families.

Glynn co-owned M&M Service Center from 1975 until 2018. He owned and operated several other automotive related businesses in prior years. He was president of the Downtown Kiwanis Club and was a former District Lt. Governor for Kiwanis International. He was a long-time member of Broadway Church of Christ, where he previously served as an Elder. As a young father he was active in Indian Guides, the Maedgen Elementary PTO, coached his sons’ sports teams, and he taught Sunday School. In later years he enjoyed world travel, golf, hospital and shut-in visitation, grandchildren, and a host of friends.

Survivors include:  his wife, Jan; children: Andrea (Joel) James of Houston; Matt (Cherie) Morgan of Cypress; Mark (Ellen) Stout of Boulder, CO; Mitch (Cyndi) Morgan of Lubbock; Ty Morgan of Plainview; and Todd (Holly) Stout of Coppell.  His grandchildren include Sarah (Jake) Michaels; Joseph Cole Morgan; Haley (Toby) Higginbotham; Lincoln (Holly) James; Mickinzie (Jeff) Morgan Nabors, M.D.; Reece Morgan; Keeley Morgan; Caleb Morgan; Lauren James; Spencer Morgan; Leo Stout; Henry Stout; nine great-grandchildren; a very special mother-in-law, Lee Lewis Beinrucker; brother-in-law Jerry Lewis (Lynn); and David Lewis (Pam.)

Along with his parents, Glynn is preceded in death by his first wife, Louise Morgan, and three older sisters.

In addition to the visitation, the family will also be available to visit one hour prior to the beginning of the funeral service.

    Dear Jan and Family,

    Please accept my sincere condolences upon the loss of Gl ynn. He was a man’s man and a true Christian who walked the walk by word and deed. As a Kappa Sigma he defined fellowship and brotherhood by his strong, meaningful grip and most welcome hugs. We were blocking backs together as we protected Bro.Jimmy Ashley from the thundering horde’s in “touch” football against other Greeks…we weren’t easy! In my last hosting of brothers/wives at Fredericksburg, Glynn and I shared a late, strong drink, a hug and prayer as we said goodbye…as brothers should. I’ll miss him greatly as all of us will…he set the bar quite high for all and impacted so many by his grace and humor and most of all by the depth of his character and generous spirit. Having Glynn in my life made me a better man and a Kappa Sigma. Bless all of you, “Tommy”

    hold close!
    Fly high my sweet friend! I can imagine being welcomed by you one day to Heaven! What a sweet welcome it will be! ❤️

  3. I met Mr. Morgan through one of his granddaughters, MicKinzie Morgan Nabors. He was kind enough to look over a vehicle I wanted to purchase free of charge as I was still in school and finances were tight. While going to school in Lubbock, I got to see Mr. Morgan on several occasions and he was ever kind and willing to help. I was always impressed with how significantly he was involved with his family despite running a business and having a life of his own. Thank you Mr. Morgan for helping me through a tough patch in life and creating a fabulous granddaughter who shares many of your great qualities.

  4. Glenn was a solid fixture in my life in my growing-up years at Broadway. He was always ready on Sunday morning with the warmest hug in the world, and in all our conversations he never had a negative word to say about anything. He and Jan came to every single one of my recitals, plays, and musicals from the time I was a tiny kid to well after I graduated from high school. Glenn, you were a light to so many. We love you always.

  5. There was nothing I loved more than running in to Glynn, whether it be at church or around town, he always had a smile and a handshake for you. He was one of a kind and will be missed by all who knew him. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of the Morgan family.

  6. Our thought and prayers are with you and the family . Bless you all and may the lord give you peace in time of pain.

  7. Glynn was a very special friend to all of our family. We all loved him & his ready smile & good hugs. When we all moved from Lubbock we really missed him & M&M Service& Mitch. We are so sorry we cannot be there tonight & for the service tomorrow. Love ❤️ & sympathy to all the family. ??

    Glynn and I grew up in Colorado City and were roommates our first year at Texas Tech – I miss you mucho comparde.

  13. Glynn was a mentor and teacher for me when I was attending high school. I worked at the Downton Mobil in 65. And continued at M&M on 54th. He was the most positive person I ever had the privilege of working for.
    Even though I have lived in New York for almost 50 years. I always made it a point to visit when visiting Lubbock.
    Glynn was an inspiration to me.

  14. I was sorry to hear of Glynn’s passing. James and he were in the Kiwanis Club together with a lot of fine men, and spoke of him often. James cherished his friendship with Glynn always. I want to thank the family for their kindness towards James and I. i sincerely say , Glynn was a fine man of good character, always showing others the love he felt for all his friends and those at M&M, he was one of a kind, and a fine example for us all.

  15. Mrs R Rex Aycock

    My deepest sympathy from the family of R Rex Aycock. We have long time good memories of the association with Glynn and family.

    Glynn was a thoughtful, caring and loyal friend of countless people he came in contact with over the course of his presence on this earth. An accomplished , resourceful businessman and always a gentleman, he was “Mr. Reliable” for his family, friends, church and community, and exacted high standards of himself for personal conduct and his business practices. While in many respects his personal style could be described as quiet, courteous and sometimes subtle demeanor, always without personal aggrandizement or selfish objectives , but possessed with that ever-present friendly smile, laughter, firm handshake and hug that made us all know he was our loyal and trusted friend. He made an affirmative impact, a real difference, on all who had the privilege of his acquaintance. Thanks, Glynn, for always being there and caring.

  17. Glynn was a ministering angel in disguise. So many times he went beyond the norm to keep me riding the road in confidence that I know it will be doubtful I find anyone more kind, generous and attentive as Glynn. He was always happy to see me and glad to hear the littany of my woes, whether concerning automotive service needs or even life in general. My father and he are enjoying a hot steaming beverage, a snack of peanuts and a discussion of the current trends and the looming future in a room of comfort and full of joy now. Glynn serviced three generations of family cars. He was as compassionate, thorough and caring as anyone I have been privileged to know. His mustachioed gregarious smile, his warm handshake, and his mischievous, laughing, intense eyes will be the hallmark of his life to all who walked this planet in his estimable presence. Thank you Glynn for the memories in me and the reassurance to me in the good side of Man.

  18. Our hearts and prayers are with all of you. We all loved Glynn and it was always such a joy to recieve those wonderful big hugs! Love you all,
    Wanda Dillard and Nancy Barclay

  19. To Mitch and the Extended Morgan Family,

    My love for you and Mr. Glynn go way back to the 1980’s, a relationship still going strong today through you. Words alone cannot express the heartfelt condolences from the Patterson Family. What a great joy it was for me to come back to Lubbock, Tx after 20 years in Ohio to still find M&M still in operation, with your Dad’s gracious love and beautiful smile the same as when I left in 1990. I could go on forever sharing how much you and your Dad meant to me. He was such a generous person and his love for people was genuine. I can only imagine the impact he had on so many lives. He truly was “One in a Million” while on earth. One thing for sure I can say is, I will always carry a piece of you and your Dad with me. Even though I don’t still have the Ford Mustang he sold me that belonged to you, I shall never forget the treasure and blessing it was to me. Please know our prayers are with your family and if there is anything we can do for you or your family, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us. Our relationship goes beyond M&M and the SWD, but our personal love for each other! Godspeed!

  20. Family,
    What an awesome legacy he left for you. He loved you all so much. Great man of God.

    From Pam next door. (That was our funny)
