GLENN PRAGER Glenn Boyd Prager, of Las Vegas, passed on to be with our Lord April 22, 2014. He was born Sept 18, 1935, in Roswell, N.M., to Louis Morris Prager and Rosalee Florence (nee Speyer) Prager, who preceded him in death. After graduating from Roswell High School in 1954, he attended Woodbury College in downtown Los Angeles, where he earned his bachelor of arts degree. It is now Woodbury University located in Burbank, Calif. In Roswell, Glenn formed the Crater Teen Club so the "kids" would have a special place of their own. Glenn was president of Pioneer Specialties of NV Inc. (a specialty advertising business incorporated here in 1988). He was past state vice president of the New Mexico Jaycees. For years he was program director of New Mexico Military Institute, Carlsbad Convention Center and Lubbock Christian College, where he brought in some greats like Paul Harvey, Ray Charles, The Platters, The Kingston Trio, Sammy Smith, Skiles and Henderson and many more. For recreation, Glenn liked to play poker at The Orleans, especially Omaha. He enjoyed travelling with his family. He has covered most of the United States by motor home, and travelled to Europe, Hong Kong and Thailand. Though Glenn suffered many health problems throughout most his life, he never allowed it to hinder his animated spirit. No matter the situation, Glenn could always turn a frown into a smile. His family is at peace knowing that he went to a better place free of pain and suffering. He is survived by his wife, Sherrill M. Prager; one son, Louis Charles Prager of Amarillo, Texas; three daughters, Rose Ann Souza of Tulare, Calif., Glendy Schweitzer of New Milford, Conn., and Angela Prager of San Francisco; one brother, Bruce Prager of Las Vegas; two grandsons, Matthew Prager of Yuma, Ariz., and David Prager of Las Vegas; five granddaughters, Rose Maree Souza of Tulare, Jennifer Souza of San Diego, Lauren Hays of Lakeside, Calif., Kayanna and Gabrielle Schweitzer of New Milford; and 10 great-grandchildren. Pastor Dana Pope from Grace Presbyterian Church will officiate services at 11 a.m. Monday, April 28, at Palm Mortuary, 7400 W. Cheyenne Ave. in Las Vegas. Additional services will be at 2:30 p.m. Friday, May 2, at Anderson Bethany Funeral Home, 2609 S. Main in Roswell, N.M. Burial will follow at South Park Cemetery in Roswell.
