Glenn Baggett, lovingly known as Pa to those who knew him, was born and raised in Center, TX. At 17 years old, Pa went to a house in Tenaha, TX, to get a gallon of fresh cow’s milk. There he met his future wife, Joy Ford, but was too shy to talk to her at that time. He went home and told his brother, “I am going to marry that girl.” As time went on, he finally started talking and he, in fact, did marry that girl on August 26, 1961 at her home. Ma and Pa were married 61 blissful years, where they enjoyed many years of hunting, gardening, travelling to Branson with their family and fishing together. Pa worked for Indian River in Nacogdoches for over 40 years. He then went on to work at NIBCO for another 17 years before retiring. They raised 3 rambunctious boys during their marriage along with numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Pa is survived by his wife, Ma (Joy Baggett); brother and wife, Robert and Linda Baggett; sister in law and husband, Calvin and Bobbie Tarver; son and wife, Ricky and Vicki Baggett; son, Michael Baggett; grandson Jesse Baggett; granddaughter and husband, Josh and Melissa Spies; granddaughter and husband, Derrick and Stephanie Harris; granddaughter and husband, Eric and Brenda Keibler; grandson Michael Baggett Jr.and granddaughter, Ashley Baggett. He is also survived by six great-grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews.
Pa was preceded in death by his parents, Curtis Baggett and Loyce Sims; step-father Jesse Sims; brother, Charles Baggett; sister, Patricia Fletcher; son, Mitchell Baggett; daughter in law Kathy Baggett; daughter in law, Tina Baggett and grandson, Matthew Baggett.
Pa is going to greatly be missed. He was always the jokester, ready to poke fun and laugh at and with us. He taught us many things as we were growing up about life and we use those lessons today. The most important lessons he taught us, was to never take ourselves too seriously (because he would knock us off those pedestals), take care of what was ours and that we had always better listen to Ma. We love you Pa, we are going to miss you.
