Walter Glendinning, 10.13.31 - 03.14.09

My Dad, Walter Glendinning, passed peacefully at 4am in Corpus Christi from undiagnosed colon cancer. All of us (including Dad) just learned about the cancer on Wednesday so we are grateful that he went swiftly and without pain. He was very well cared for by the medical staff at Christus Spohn Hospital and we will be eternally grateful for the kindness they showed Dad, my sisters and me. I will keep you updated on any memorial service information, which will be in Rockport some time in April.

Dad was born in the tiny town of Hawick, Scotland and found his true home in the even tinier town of Rockport Texas about 20 years ago. Along the way he traveled the world and made many friends over his 77 years. He will be deeply missed by all who had the opportunity to know him and experience his positive energy. He was always ready with a good story, friendly smile, silly pun or joke, and a compassionate heart. He made friends literally to the day he died. There much more to say about Dad, but suffice it to say he had much love and laughter around him.

Thanks so much for all your good wishes and prayers.
