Kenn W. Glave
Kenn W. Glave entered into eternal rest on February 8, 2014, following a long illness. He is the son of Kenneth L. Glave and Dolores Campbell Glave, who preceded him in death and is survived by his wife of 46-years, Melody; son Steven; daughter-in-law, Natalie Myers Glave; grandsons, Grayson and Kurt; granddaughter, Faith; and his beloved cat, Lady Mona.
Born in Arlington Heights, Illinois, Kenn grew up in Webster Groves, Missouri, attained the rank of Eagle Scout, graduated in 1954 from Webster Groves High School and earned a degree in Political Science from East Texas State. Kenn proudly served his country in the US Army, 34th Signal Corps in Ludwigsburg, Germany and then began a distinguished career in the airline industry – where he represented the United States and Pan American World Airways in Turkey, Egypt, Viet Nam, Laos, Afghanistan, Germany and North Yemen. Meeting his childhood hero, Charles Lindberg, and traveling the world was his dream-come-true and for 77 years he lived his dream.
For over 30 years, he operated Kenn’s Executive Travel in downtown Houston and lived in Quail Valley. He graduated from Missouri City’s first Citizens Police Academy, its first Citizens Fire Academy and was a volunteer for the Citizens Response Team. Kenn served as a member of the Public Safety Committee as part of the Missouri City Bond Issue Task Force and supported planned development of his adopted city. He served in leadership positions and was president of the Skal Club, an international organization for travel and tourism.
A Memorial celebration of Kenn’s life will be held on Monday, February 17, 2014, at 1: 30 pm, at The Settegast-Kopf Co. Sugar Creek, Sugar Land. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests that a donation to support the Wounded Warrior Project, or the charity of your choice, be made in his name.
