Glenn Heath, bright young southern soldier, was born in 1910, and died of cancer in 1962. He was a handsome, dashing young man who pulled himself up by his own bootstraps, served in the medical corps in the US army in World War II (helping to liberate the concentration camps from the western front), and went on to get his BA from Western Ky U and his MA from George Peabody College (Vanderbilt). He was a well-loved teacher and basketball coach at Westmoreland, TN, High School until his untimely death. He was one of three sons of Raleigh Thornburg Heath and Mattie Boren Heath. He married Valera M. Williams, and had one child, Alan. Glenn was a Renaissance man: a painter, a pianist, violinist, and singer, a notable speaker, a farmer, and play director.
