Pastor and radio engineer Glenn Morgan passed away Tuesday night, April 16. Glenn was everybody's friend. He served as WDYN chief engineer for 42 years. Glenn founded and was pastor of the Community Baptist Church on Signal Mountain for over 50 years.
Glenn and his wife Dot were married for 68 years. Glenn was a graduate of the Tennessee Temple Bible School. Glenn and some of his friends put together plans for WDYN on his kitchen table in 1967.
Tom Sneed, WDYN general manager, said, “Glenn was an old time radio engineer.” He collected parts for radio station equipment and could fix anything. Sneed said, “Glenn was always ready to assist other engineers in Chattanooga when problems would arise. Glenn was a loving pastor with a servants heart."
Glenn's favorite place to eat was Beas. He loved their fried chicken and mashed potatoes. His favorite Southern Gospel singing group was the Hyssongs. They sang at his church many times.
Glenn was a Ham. He would always go to Hamfests around Chattanooga.
On a personal note, we're certainly gonna miss Glenn but I'm sure if there are radio transmitters in Heaven the Lord already has him working on one. I was around Glenn many times through the years. I never heard him say an unkind word about anybody.
