Glenn L. Wiatt

Monday, May 18, 2015

Glenn L. Wiatt, 70, won victory in Jesus and rejoined his parents, Isaac Edward and Cletis Zoe McGaughey Wiatt, in heaven on Saturday, May 16, 2015 after a very short battle with bile duct cancer.

He was loved and will be greatly missed by his wife, Carolyn McKinney Wiatt; two daughters, LeeAnn Williams and husband Clint, and Lynette Hamer and husband Rob, and three grandchildren, Kinsey Williams, Kole Williams, and Jordan Hamer, all who reside in Lafayette.

He is also survived and missed by two brothers and their families, Larry and Darrell Wiatt; his three sister-in-laws and their families, Sheila McKinney, Cathy King and Tammy Butler; and his mother-in-law, Betty McKinney.

He was a lifelong resident of Montgomery County until five years ago.

He graduated from Waveland High School in 1963, the University of Indianapolis in 1967 and received his Master's Degree from IUPUI at Indianapolis.

He was better known as "Mr. Wiatt" for 43 years as he started his teaching career in 1967 at Waveland High School, moved with the consolidation to Southmont High School in 1971 and retired in 2010 as a legend from Southmont High School.

He was awarded the 1997 South Montgomery Schools Teacher of Excellence Award and 2011 South Montgomery Schools Hall of Fame Award. His impact on former students is remarkable he left a true legacy.

Besides his family and love of teaching mathematics, Glenn had a third passion -- farming. Since a little boy, he loved farming alongside his Dad -- planting the seed, watching the crops grow, and combining the harvest. Glenn was also co-owner of Wiatt Seed Service for 35-plus years where he loved talking with his customers.

He was deacon and former member of Freedom Baptist Church and member of First Baptist Church in Crawfordsville.

Funeral services will be at 11 a.m. Thursday, May 21 at Machledt and Servies Funeral Home, Waveland.

Visitation will be on Wednesday evening from 4-8 p.m. at the funeral home.

Burial will be at Oak Hill North Cemetery and Pastor David Culley will officiate.

Memorials may be made in his honor to the Glenn Wiatt Memorial Scholarship Fund at any Tri-County Bank office.
