Services for Glen Darrell Box, 85, of Denton, Texas, will be held at 1 p.m. March 25, 2023 at the Rosedale First Baptist Church, 37740 Arkansas Ave., in Rosedale, Okla.
Mr. Box was born on May 8, 1937 in Rosedale, Okla., the son of George Roy and Ethal Rodgers Box.
He married the love of his life, Isa Bernice (Edens) on April 17, 1960 and raised his family while serving the Houston bedroom community of Friendswood, Texas, owner of an appliance sale and service company.
Glen is remembered as a soft-spoken humble, decent, honorable man with a subtle sense of humor and a contagious belly laugh. Over the years and through many moves, he always maintained a majestic garden and when he didn’t have an orchard at hand, was known to go to tremendous lengths to secure a good bushel of peaches. He passed his love of gardening to his children and grandchildren, spending at lease a half hour per week answering his grandson’s questions about the rearing of a proper crop of stonefruit, corn, squash and tomatoes.
He goes to join his wife and his siblings, Lawrence, Clarence, Gladys, Velma and Jack.
Survivors include his daughter, Sheri; son, Mark; nieces, Susie, Nancy and Joanne; nephews, Duane, Nick, Ricke, Glen Roy and Paul; grandsons, Darrell Glen and Bryan and his latest joy, great-grandson, Jeremy Glen.
