Glenn Crum


Glenn O. Crum, 89, of Haysville, passed away at home with his family at his side on Wednesday, Nov. 17, 2021. Glenn was born on Nov. 5, 1932, to Myles and Eunice Crum of Wichita, the youngest of four boys. Raised by his amazing mother, he graduated from Wichita North High School in 1950.
Christian, husband, dad, grandpa, coach, teacher, mayor, board member, friend, volunteer. No matter what name you called him, Glenn was one of the greatest people God has ever given to this world and he made all of our lives better. He literally impacted thousands of students, families, and friends; loving and guiding everyone he met. The success of children was his passion; not only his own, but all kids in every community he touched. In his 89 years, he gave his time, his energy, his faith, and his love without hesitation. He was the person we all pray we could be, and we thank God for every second we were blessed to know and love him.
Glenn is survived by his wife of 67 years, Rolla; his children, Mike (Robin) Crum of Pretty Prairie, Tammy (Jerry) Fleming of Haysville, and Steven (Paige) Crum of Haysville; his grandchildren, Heidi (Josh) Schrag of Pretty Prairie, Destiny (Michael) Hollrah of Kansas City, Mo., Katie Crum of Pretty Prairie, Tracy Crum of Haysville, Natalie (Bryant) Keirns of Stillwater, Okla., Olyvia Glynn Crum of Malden, Mass., Paul Crum of Pretty Prairie, Jon Fleming of St. Louis, Mo., Dawsen Crum of Rochester, N.Y., and Daine Crum of Haysville; as well as his three great-grandchildren, Memphis and Ophelia Eggers of Pretty Prairie, and Carson Hollrah of Kansas City, Mo.
