Rev. Glen E. Beeler

Rev. Glen E. Beeler went home to be with his heavenly Father on Friday December 31st . More than anything Glen loved Christ fiercely and reflected his love for Christ through the way he adored his family, served his community through pastoring, and encouraged others to get to know his risen Savior.

Glen is now reunited with his mother (Estelle Beeler), father (Clarence “Bus” Beeler), brother (Wayne Beeler), and the many other loved ones he had lost along his journey on this earth. His family will miss the strong rock he was, the tender heart he had, and the shelter of love he always provided. He was a loving husband to his wife of 48 years Brenda. He was a good father to Joe and Jenny Beeler and Brad and Lisa Connelly, and a fun-loving grandfather to Kate Connelly. He adored his sisters, Lorene Ogle and Helen McBee, and all of his extended family. While we are selfishly sad to let him go, we are comforted by the thought of our husband and Dad finally meeting the Lord whom he spent his life serving.

The funeral will be held at the church Glen established, Fellowship Christian Church (746 Tazewell Pike Luttrell, TN 37779) on Tuesday January 4th at 2 p.m. Reverends Johnny Smith, James Russell, and Ronnie Beeler officiating.
