Lloyd Glenn Largen, 92, of Meadows of Dan, Virginia, passed away at his home on Thursday, November 5, surrounded by family. Glenn was born April 25, 1928, to the late Walter and Mary Largen.
During World War II, Glenn enlisted in the Navy. After his military service, he worked as a timber cutter, a carpenter, and as a mechanic for Lionel Stanley in Meadows of Dan. He married the love of his life, Martha Ethelean McAlexander, in 1951, and together they started a small dairy farm and raised three sons. Glen and Ethelean enjoyed 64 years together until her death in 2015. In 1960, Glenn started a career as a truck driver for Blue Ridge Transfer, retiring after 35 years. His weekends were spent working at home on the farm. Sundays were always highlighted by attendance at Parkway Church of the Brethren services.
In addition to his wife, Glenn was preceded in death by his parents, and by his siblings Grady Clinton Largen, Marvin Largen, and Reva Largen Goad.
Glenn is survived by his sons, Harvey (Therese Haugh) of Roanoke, VA, Lewis (Nancy), and Carlton (Barbara) of Meadows of Dan, VA, 12 grandchildren, 16 great-grandchildren, and his brother, Herman Largen, of Pulaski, VA.
A graveside burial service will be held at 1:00 PM on Saturday, Nov. 7, in Meadows of Dan Baptist Church Cemetery.
The family would like to give special thanks to all Glenn’s caregivers for their compassionate service in caring for Glenn for the last several years.
