On Friday, July 17, 2020, Heaven gained an angel as Charles Glenn McGonagill left this earth to join our Heavenly Father. Glenn was met there by his wife of 58 years, Gwen McGonagill; his parents, John and Clara McGonagill; sisters, Ellen Hutto, Evelyn (Sis) Crosby, Louise Newberry, and Olive Mae Turner; brothers, Ralph, Jackie, Oscar (Sonny) and J.B. McGonagill; and son-in-law, Terry Alexander. Glenn is survived by his three daughters, Micki Biltz (Tim), Terri Atnipp (John) and Patti Alexander; brothers, George (Judy), Walter Dea (Gloria), Tommy (Dian), and Gordon (Betty) McGonagill; and sister, Virginia (Ginger) Davis; grandchildren, Glenn (Lisa) Willard, Tera Sullivan, Dylan (Michelle) McGonagill, Cory (Darelly) Taylor, Lindsi (Jace) Brosig, Matthew (Brittany) Hunkin, Ramona (Chive) Rodriguez, Brandon Alexander, Brandon Atnipp; great-grandchildren: Brandon Falcon, Haley Andreason, Madison Taylor, Ethan Sullivan, Christian Rodriguez, Sylvestre Rodriguez, Avery Sullivan, Clay Taylor, Audrey McGonagill, Damon Willard, Jolee Hunkin, Charlee Sue Willard, Larissa Rodriguez, and Lincoln Brosig. Glenn was born in Melvin, Texas December 31, 1936. As a small child, his family moved to Del Rio where Glenn was raised among thirteen brothers and sisters. After high school, Glenn attended S.W.T.J.C. in Uvalde where he fell head over heels in love with Mary Gwendolyn McClintock. After college, Glenn joined the U.S. Marine Corps and on his first leave, he came home to marry Gwen. The couple moved to Del Rio in 1964. Glenn became one of Lake Amistad’s first professional guides when the lake was built in 1969. He enjoyed forty-plus years of his profession, making many friends on the lake. He was known for joke-telling, aluminum tacos and was often found fileting and frying fish on the bank for his customers. He was featured in numerous fishing magazines and TV fishing programs. Glenn was a generous, loving person, always available with a helping hand. He derived great joy in being able to provide fish and deer meat to friends and family as well as neighbors. He was a caregiver. His family was everything to him. To his family, he was a hero. Glenn will be terribly missed by all who knew him. The family has opted to postpone a memorial service to a later date. In lieu of flowers or donations, the family asks that we each cherish one another and let all that you do, be done in love. 1 Corinthians 16:14
