Mr. Halley was born October 4, 1937 in Memphis, Tennessee to Jewell Leath and Gladys Mayble (Palmer) Halley. He spent the early years of his life in Memphis until his dad bought a farm in Pocahontas, Tennessee and moved the family there.


He graduated school in Middleton, Tennessee and attended church at Pocahontas Baptist Church where he was baptized at the age of 15.

Audean and Family, Sure enjoyed knowing Glen over the past 14 years. Audean and Glenn were 10-0-C band fans, always chatted with them at many other music events, were regulars "On the Square" music evenings in Bolivar. They could sings along with most Country Music songs. My thoughts and prayers to all.
