Obituary for GLEN EUGENE WHITE

Glen Eugene White ... aka Captain ... Skinny Man ...Cricket ... Squirrel. .. Toothpick ... Mighty White ...Egbert ... and MR. Truehart ... entered this earthly realm on March 31, 1959, accompanied by his fraternal twin sister, Glenda. He was the second son of Cedrick and Regina Butler White, preceded in birth by brother Conrad. The Whites made their home in Prince Frederick, Maryland. Glen's parents' families embraced the same family values and seized every opportunity to strengthen t he family bond. They planted the seeds and nourished its growth throughout Glen's life. It was evident in the loving care and support that was normal life in t heir generation - evidenced by eager involvement in each other's and their children's lives ...Those seeds came to full bloom in Glen's life as he later became a husband and father. He loved serving his family and community. At any time, you might find him cutting a neighbor's lawn, chopping wood, shoveling snow- helping someone in need. Glen was an easy spirit - loved and
admired by many.

Glen really enjoyed life in his teen years ... playing soccer and basketball throughout high school. His yearbook lists his interests as " likes to jam, young ladies, having a good time, and to get down & party." His motto: Live life as it comes, but try to make the best of it. Remember you only have one life to live .... S-O-L-I-D!

While Glen's ambition originally was to join the Air Force, upon high school graduation, he followed big brother Conrad to Tennessee State University, as part of the "Pax10 Program" which prepared him to study electrical engineering. He quickly adapted to college life. Glen became a man of service! He was initiated into the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc., via Tennessee State's Rho Psi Chapter, in the spring of 1980 and has remained a dedicated life member. In 2004, he was one of nine charter members of the Tau Lambda Lambda (TLL) Graduate Chapter, the "Southern Maryland Ques". He served as the chapter's first Vice Basileus (vice president). Glen also received TLL's Basileus Award and was a Founder's Stand-In in 2009. He has worked tirelessly to uphold Omega's Cardinal Principles of Manhood, Scholarship, Perseverance and Uplift.

Most notably, Glen met the love of his life, Gloria Truehart, at Tennessee State. They married in 1988 and made their home in Charlotte Hall, MD, adjacent to the Butler homestead - his mother's home place. Glen & Gloria were a perfect match! - weathering life's storms together, growing together and nurturing their son Little Glen in the ways of the Lord. Without hesitation, the Whites opened their home to family & friends and were perfect hosts. For several years, the lawn of "The White House" was the setting for family reunions.

Glen's greatest joy was being a father and husband. He was totally immersed in his son's school activities from elementary through college, laying the groundwork of service - passing on the legacy he inherited from his parents. Is it any wonder that Lil Glen also pledged and is actively involved with the Omegas? Like father, like son ... Glen also enjoyed playing chess, hunting, basketball and was an avid Steelers fan. Speaking of basketball, Glen refereed high school basketball as a member of the Maryland Basketball Officials Association - earning an award for regulating over 1,000 games.

In 1989, something happened that would change Glen's life forever. He met the Lord. Like so many of us, the challenges of life have us looking upward for answers. And he found it. As the years passed, Glen's faith grew deeper. Life threw several curve balls his way ... But God did not abandon Him. Glen rebounded and was filled with an unquenchable fire evidenced in a deeper spiritual walk and service to God's people and his community. He was active in the church body, serving as deacon and singing with The Royal Kings & Priests men's group at Christ's Church in Waldorf. More recently, Glen and Gloria transitioned to South Potomac Church and quickly found themselves at home as part of our church family.

No doubt, Glen relished his relationship with the Lord and eagerly shared his testimony -through his smile, his energy, his kind and giving heart. He follows great legacies of the White and Butler families and leaves his footsteps for the next generation to follow.

Left to cherish Glen's memory are devoted wife of 27 years, Gloria Truehart White, son Glen (Fiancée' Tierra) of Waldorf, MD; sister Glenda Fields and brother Conrad White (Cheryl) of Prince Frederick, MD; sisters-in-law Fanny Shelton and Kathleen Truehart of Memphis, TN; niece Rebecca Barnes (Lamar) of Washington, DC; nephews David Fields of Anderson, SC and Mark Fields of Annapolis, MD; niece Adrianne Troilo (Nick) of Silver Spring, MD; aunt Oreese Stanback of Washington, DC; and a generous host of extended family and friends.

Glen leaves a message for us all; he says- " I Recommend Jesus."
