Obituary of Glynn Edward Street
Glynn Edward Street, born December 4, 1954 in Prentiss, Mississippi to Brown Street and Lois Rollins, of The Villages, Florida passed away on Thursday, January 23, 2020 following complications from heart surgery, he was 65 years young.
Glynn was the love of his wife of 43 years, Stephanie Street. The father of Richard; brother of Roy Allen of Texas, Frances Marlene Morse, Theresa Gladine Ryan, and Connie Smith all of Mississippi; and brother-in-law of Alice Allen of Texas, Sue Golmon of Mississippi, Mary Vaughan of The Villages and Antoinette (Toni) and James Downing of Washington. He was the favorite Uncle to a host of nieces, nephews, grand-nieces, and grand-nephews throughout the country.
Glynn was a proud veteran of The United States Navy (1974-1980). His tour of duties included the Joint Liaison Office, Naples, Italy (1974-1976) where he met and married Stephanie, and the National Security Agency, Fort Meade, Maryland (1976-1980). He continued to serve his country at the National Security Agency (1984-2013) where he held several positions within most of the Agency earning a host of awards. While at the National Security Agency, Glynn was stationed at RAF Menwith Hill Station, North Yorkshire, England (1986-1991), he also served a total of ten months in Baghdad, Iraq. Glynn and his family resided in Anne Arundel County Maryland off and on for the better part of 43 years until Stephanie’s retirement in 2016.
Glynn was an avid fisherman, nothing like wetting a hook on a clear blue day, and he taught his wife to enjoy a day on the water; a hunter, wow, first deer or goose of the season whether he had the kill or one of his hunting buddies got the first; a golfer who had enough patience to teach his wife to hit a golf ball, the first tee of the season with the King and his court; and a reader, science fiction and fantasy, go figure. Glynn was a very passionate self-taught cook (thank you Alton Brown!), he loved to cook the basics and the gourmet for anyone and everyone. In the earlier days, yes, many a dish was trashed (Stephanie’s too!). Glynn was also a great dancer, no dance he could not do or at least attempt, our friends from Menwith Hill are reminded of his “Dirty Dancing.”
Glynn was preceded in death by both his parents and stepparents Alvin King and Delois Allen Street; brother Earnest Easley Golmon, Jr. and sisters Lois Marie Myers, Iris Sue Jernigan, and Jennifer Tindel, and brothers-in-law Grover (Skip) Davis Ryan and Jimmy Lee Smith all of Mississippi; brother-in-law James Francis Vaughan, Jr. of The Villages; and niece Elisha Holli Downing Schnieder of Washington.
