Glenn W. Agan

EDMOND —     Glenn W. Agan, 78, of Arcadia, Okla., passed away December 2, 2012 at the residence.  He was born September 9, 1934 and adopted as an infant by Curtis and Lelah Agan of Clinton, Okla.

    Glenn was raised in Custer County and attended Stafford, Clinton High School graduating from Clinton High School.

He married Mary Anne Newman on September 7, 1952, in Clinton, and they recently celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary.  To this union two girls were born, Sharilyn Ann and Shelia Renea Agan. 

    Glenn was employed by the Oklahoma Department of Transportation; City of Enid, as a construction inspector; and the City of Edmond as chief engineering inspector.  He retired from the City of Edmond in November 1996.

    In 2001, after 66 years he was reunited with his biological mother, Violet McArthur Potter of Bristow, Okla. After their first meeting Glenn went to Bristow every week to take her to lunch. They would gather up her  sister, Ruth Kidd and her brother, Bill J.
