Glenn Upchurch, Sr., rose to meet his Lord, and to be reunited with his beloved Annie Sue, in the early hours of September 3, 2020.
Visitation was from 10 a.m. until 11 a.m. at First Baptist Church of Itta Bena, on Saturday, September 5, with a service to immediately follow. Interment was in Itta Bena Cemetery.
Glenn was born on December 3, 1932, in Choctaw County, to William Pearl and Callie Peacock Upchurch.
After graduation, Glenn served in the US Army Security Agency and was deployed to both Korea and Japan during the early 1950s. Glenn worked for over 40 years at Johnson Implement Company and helped several generations of Delta farmers maintain their tractors and cotton pickers in excellent shape.
He is survived by his children, Chip (Sarah) Upchurch, Melanie Upchurch Smith, and Chuck (Betsy) Upchurch, as well as eight grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that any memorials be made to the Hill View Baptist Church Building Fund at 23919 Hwy 430 S, Greenwood, MS 38930.
