Glenn Acra Rexrode, 65, of The Forks of Water Community of Highland County, passed away Monday, February 13, 2017. Born May 11, 1951 in Moyers, WV, he was a son of the late Bruce and Susie (Waybright) Rexrode.
Mr. Rexrode spent his earlier working years as a logger and eventually becoming the self-employed owner of Rexrode Timber and Excavation Co. Later, Glenn along with his companion and spouse, Karen, built and ran Rexrode's Country Store, serving many different people in Highland, the surrounding counties and beyond. He also began farming, stretching from the Forks of the Water to Hightown and Moyers, WV.
Glenn enjoyed an array of activities including camping, motorcycling, cruises, hunting expeditions, and international trips.
Glenn had a huge personality that had a tendency to spill over onto others. Always greeting you with a smile, he never met a stranger as he talked and joked with everyone he came into contact with. He was a remarkable man who loved Christ, his family, friends and all aspects of his blessed life. The man, husband, father, grandfather and many other roles Glenn held will be sorely missed.
In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by a brother, Marvin Bruce Rexrode.
Surviving family members include his beloved wife of 46 years, Karen (Harper) Rexrode; his daughters, April Armstrong and husband, Brad of Monterey and Stacey Michelle Rexrode of Webster Springs, WV; his grandchildren Hope Elizabeth and Declan Leif Armstrong; two sisters, Donna Ruddle and husband, Calvin "Buddy” and Rosalynn Tichenor both of Moyers, WV; his brother, Donald “Dick” Rexrode and wife, Patricia also of Moyers; as well as his mother-in-law, Gladys Harper of Franklin, WV.

Burial will follow in Blue Grass Cemetery.
Active pallbearers will be Brad Armstrong, Damian Rexrode, Eddie Giles, Travis Wolfe, Bob Kelly, and Don Ferrell.
