Glenn was born on June 29, 1956 in Natchez to Bill and Alma Etheridge. He was a lifelong resident of Natchez, except for four years spent away at four different colleges, and longtime member of Natchez Church of God.

Glenn was the owner of Etheridge True Value Hardware in Natchez for decades and was ever grateful for the loyalty of many customers.

He loved music (especially Elvis!) and Ole Miss sports, and was the most devoted husband, brother, father, and Christian imaginable.

He was preceded in death by his parents and by his brother-in-law, Bob Allen.

He is survived by his wife of 42 years, Cindy Etheridge; two daughters, Casey Etheridge Desselles and husband Scott of Robert, Louisiana, and Lindsey Etheridge Lazinsky and husband Nathan of Oxford, Mississippi; his sister, Gloria Allen of Cleveland, Tennessee; and two grandsons, Lucas and Finnegan Desselles.

Pallbearers will be Gary Holloway, J.D. Whitehead, Garry Simpson, Mike Collier, John Betts, and Danny Sims.

Honorary pallbearers will be Cliff Hataway, Don Smith, Bobby Short, Iva Ray Thornton, Allen Wingfield, and Thomas O’Neal.

Glenn’s family especially appreciates his great friends Cliff Hataway, Leon Bullen, Ellis Felter, and Greg Easterling for speaking, singing, and playing music for the ceremony.

For the protection of the family, please wear a mask.
