Glen Robert Preas
Glen Robert Preas, 76, of Pampa, passed away Sunday, April 25, 2021 at his home with his loving wife by his bedside. He was born on November 9, 1944 in Tulsa, Oklahoma to Vesta “Pete” and Nellie Preas.
About 40 years ago, Glen moved from Big Spring, Texas to Pampa and shortly thereafter, he met the sparkle in his eyes, Barbara Landers. On April 20th, they had celebrated their 36th anniversary together and he was as smitten with Barbara as the day he first laid eyes on her. Although they were a blended family, you would never know that by the simple fact that Glen, very honorably accepted her family as his and never treated them any differently. He absolutely loved their family without waver; however, he never missed an opportunity to be ornery or even a prankster with some of his shenanigans!
Glen had retired as an electrician with the Pampa ISD after 27 years. In that time, he found himself in a few unfortunate situations, but each time proved to be a superhero by running towards danger rather than away to protect the safety of others. Glen was a member of the Masonic Lodge #966 and had served in the United States Navy.
Glen was quite a simple man who loved his family, worked hard, spent countless hours in his yard, helped anyone he could in any way needed and enjoyed laughter. He was very much the type of man many aspire to be. His kind and loving goodness will be missed by so many who knew him.
He was greeted in Heaven by his parents; three sons, an infant, Mark Preas, Robert “Dusty” Glen Preas and Michael Whisenhunt.
Those left here to remember his kindness are his wife, Barbara Preas of Pampa; four sons, Tobbey Preas of Pampa, Wes Heiskell and wife Alicia of Houston, Kevin Heiskell and wife Chantelle of Iowa, Keith Heiskell and wife Kim of Stinnett; three brothers, Charles Preas and wife Elaine of Colorado, Rocky Turner and wife Beth of Brownwood, Larry Turner and wife Deb of Sweetwater; grandchildren, Amy Cole, Melissa Curbo, Rachel Smith, Chad Walker, Christopher Heiskell, Delaney Heiskell, Taylor Heiskell, Greyson Heiskell, Krissy Hollman, Dustin Ivey and wife Casey, Crystal Lewis and husband Joe; great-grandchildren, Korbin Cole, Spencer Cole, Ty Curbo, Miles Curbo, Emmerson Smith, Dakota Jones, DJ Ivy, Teagan Ivy; a great-great-grandson, Dean Ivy and numerous nieces, nephews and extended family members.
