Glynn was born April 11, 1944 in Littlefield, Texas to Clyde and Frances (Johnson) Price. He graduated from Bula High School in 1962 and always enjoyed going to the community reunions. He is a US Army Veteran and was proud of his service. Glynn loved the land, loved his family and loved to have a good time. He had a quiet integrity that drove everything he did to excellence. Whether he was farming, meeting the guys for coffee or cards, doting on his grandchildren or traveling with friends and family, his presence was always larger than life.
