Mr. Glenn Louis Meyer, 67, resident of Horntown, VA, passed away Saturday, November 16, 2019 at his home. Born September 8, 1952 in Washington, DC, he was the son of the late John Henry Meyer and Priscilla White Meyer who along with their children were property owners at Trails End in Horntown, Virginia.
Glenn served his country in the United States Army during the Vietnam War and later received his Associates Degree in Food and Beverage Management from Montgomery College in Rockville, Maryland.
Throughout his childhood, Glenn and his family spent summers on the Gulf Coast of Florida and Mississippi and took many fishing and camping trips to Chincoteague Island, VA. It was then that he first fell in love with the laid-back lifestyle of Virginia’s Eastern Shore, and the beauty of waters around Chincoteague and Assateague islands. In the early 1970’s the family purchased a vacation camping lot in Trails End in Horntown.
He retired from his job as a manager of a Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant in Wheaton, Md and over the last several years, he enjoyed retirement on the Shore. A man of few needs, Glenn enjoyed the simple life and was happiest when on his boat casting his rod, checking crab pots and watching wildlife over Mosquito Creek in Trails End. He loved baseball and football , and was especially grateful to have lived to see the Washington Nationals win the World Series in October 2019.
Glenn had a quick wit and welcoming spirit for all kinds of people and enjoyed visits from his friends and family when they visited the Shore. He looked forward to holiday visits and family gatherings with his sisters, nieces and nephews, whom he adored and his friends.
He is survived by his sisters, Jean Meyer Capps and her husband Cavan Capps of Takoma Park, MD and their daughter, Christine; Beverly Meyer Stalker and her husband Bob Stalker of Gaithersburg, MD and their daughters , Casey and Haley; and Gail Meyer Anastasi and her husband Michael Anastasi of Fort Myers, FL and her sons , Nathan and Brendan.
