Glen was born September 6, 1945 in Gorman, Texas to the late Farrell Ennis Tharp and Dorothy Louise Ogle Tharp. Mr. Tharp served in the United States Army during Vietnam and was a recipient of the Bronze Star. Glen was a proud veteran and loved his country. He did his best to only purchase products that were made in the United States. He worked as a salesman for Vermeer Equipment for many years before retirement. Glen enjoyed being outdoors farming, tending to his land, cattle and horses. Above all his family came first and the time he spent with them was precious. He never met a stranger and would help anyone in need. Glen was a devoted member of the Rocky Church of Christ. He will always be remembered by the loving family and many friends he leaves behind.

Glen is survived by his wife of 51 years Doris Mae Trout Tharp; daughter Glenda Merrell and husband Danny; son Bobby Tharp and wife Misty; five grandchildren Chandler, Chase, Gracie, Cullen and Wylie; sister Vicki Hunt; step brother J.R. Shirley; Aunt Naomi Edwards, numerous nieces and nephews as well as many other loving family and friends.
