Glenn Spencer Obituary

Glenn Reed Spencer, age 78, passed away on Friday, December 8, 2023 at his home in the Peeled Oak community of Bath County, Kentucky. He was born in Mt. Sterling, Kentucky on August 21, 1945 to the late Leonard and Nancy Back Spencer.

Glenn was married to his high school sweetheart, Bonnie, for 58 years. He was a graduate of Bath County High School and Lexington Barber College. He worked as a barber 58 years, most of that time with his friend and partner Joe Dicken in their barber shop in Mt. Sterling.

He was devoted and dependable in every role in his life – son, husband, father, father-in-law, grandfather, brother, brother-in-law, uncle, and friend. His grandchildren were his pride and joy, and he loved and cherished his big family, his many friends, his loyal customers, and his border collies, Dolly and Pepper.
