Glenn Maxwell Mills (Fat Daddy)

sunsetbridgeOWENSBORO, Ky. - Glenn Maxwell Mills (Fat Daddy), born May 24, 1937 in Barbourville, KY to the late Eugene Mills and Mabel Hoskins Mills went to play on Jesus team Sunday, September 1st.

Glenn loved, kids and sports. He dedicated many years of service to local youth sports serving in positions from coach to league president at Southern Little League, Owensboro Babe Ruth, Pop Warner Football, West Daviess County Little League, and Royal Ambassadors Track and Basketball at Lewis Lane Baptist Church. Prior to a stroke in 2004, he could be found most nights watching a game at one of the local fields.

Glenn graduated from both Kentucky Wesleyan College and Brescia College. He served on the Board of Directors for the Girls and Boys Club, was a president for the 16-18 year old Babe Ruth Baseball League, served as president for the West Daviess County Little League. He was a member of TPA, Owensboro Chamber of Commerce and the KWC All American Club. He held a master license in HVAC and was the owner of M&C Heating and Air. As an active charter member at Lewis Lane Baptist Church he served as a deacon, a lay minister, Sunday school superintendent, youth leader, RA Leader, greeter and usher as well as on several committees. He was an avid fan of the KWC Panthers, UK Basketball and Football and the Cincinnati Reds. He was watching a Reds game on TV up to the minute the ambulance arrived to take him on his final trip to the hospital.

Glenn attended Berea College where he met and married his devoted wife of 57 years, Shirley. He is survived by Shirley, his children Kaye Varvel (Dewayne), Max Mills (Sheila) of Owensboro and Tommy Mills (Kim) of Lexington; his grandchildren Bridget Prusz (Andy) of Owensboro, Kim Cox McDaniel (Brian) of Evansville, Josh Cox, Meg Mills and Matt Mills of Lexington, Byron and Kalea Varvel of Bremen; and great grandchildren Jackson, Brady and Mason Prusz of Owensboro. He is also survived by siblings Doloris Eskridge (JB) or Hartford, Judy Trail of Owensboro and Jim Mills (Kay) of Fort Wayne, IN.

Services will be at 10:00 a.m. on Thursday in the Chapel of James H. Davis Funeral Home & Crematory. Burial will follow in Oakwood Cemetery in Hartford. Visitation will be on Wednesday from 5:00-8:00 and after 9:00 a.m. Thursday at the funeral home.

The family requests that expressions of sympathy be made to a local church's children's program, youth group or play-ground of your choice. Glenn always wanted to help the kids in any way that he could and we wish to continue that dream.

We would like to thank all those that have cared for Glenn during the years since his stroke: Dr. Keeley, Dr. Havelda, Dr. Garimella, Dr. Shaw, Dr. Ross, Dr. Haira, the staff and providers at Wound Healing, Angie and Kathy from home health and our  'adopted sister in love ' Kim Day who has helped encourage him daily.
