Born in Coffeeville, Mississippi on December 5, 1937, he was the son of Eric Brower and Anna (Wydell) Webb. Glenn was a Veteran of the United States Air Force and was very much a sportsman. He enjoyed playing softball and basketball, but he truly loved playing golf, in which he won several National Championships in Honduras. He traveled the world, and was, at one time, a next-door neighbor to Elvis. He moved to La Ceiba, Honduras at the age of 21 where he eventually retired. As the President of the CD Victoria Soccer team, he inspired his players to get an education and improve their lives. He was light on his feet, being a very good dancer, and he never met a bucket hat that he didn’t like. Glenn loved his family very much and would do anything for them, often sharing stories and staying in touch.
He is preceded in death by his parents, brother, Bill “Bud” Brower, Sisters, Gloria Berkheimer and Tina Short, and Aunt Mary.
He is survived by his daughters, Belinda Brown and husband, Mike, of Taylor Landing, Erica Vindel and husband, Abraham, of Beaumont, Christina Brower of Canada and sons, Glenn Brower of Lumberton, and Jorge Brower and wife, Karla, of La Ceiba, Honduras. He will also be remembered by his grandchildren, Glenn, Anthony, Mikey, Jose, Jorge, Erick, Abraham, Erika, Michelle, David, Nicole, Valerie, 7 great grandchildren, his nieces, Dee Dee Berkheimer, Melissa Torres, Cindy Millikan, nephew, Shawn Brower, and cousin, Don Harbour and wife, Janet, along with other loving family.
