Glen F. McFerrin

TAHLEQUAH — Glen F. McFerrin, 86, of Tahlequah, passed away peacefully, surrounded by those who meant the most to him, to go home to the Lord on Saturday, Sept. 29, 2012, in Tulsa.

Glen grew up in Arkansas until he entered the Army at age eighteen. He was proud to have served his country. Upon his return, he met and married Wahlelle in 1949. They moved to Hughson, Calif., where they raised their family and made many memories with their children and grandchildren. In 1992 they returned to Arkansas and then moved to Tahlequah.

His life touched so many, he was dearly loved, and he will never be forgotten.
