GLEN MAXIE Born December 27, 1935, in Hemphill, Texas, Harlon Glen Maxie, 83, of Lake Kiowa, TX, went to heaven November 11, 2019. Glen's kind, generous and loving heart wore out. Glen grew up and attended school in Fisher, Louisiana. Glen had three sisters and three brothers. Glen worked in the oilfields of Louisiana and Texas, later he pursued a more stable career in plumbing. After marrying Darlees, they moved to Las Vegas, Nevada in 1963 with their three children. There, Glen was a plumber for over 40 years. He and his wife successfully operated Glen Maxie Plumbing for 26 years. Glen Maxie Plumbing was known for its trouble shooting skills, integrity and discretion of service to the entertainers and leaders of Las Vegas. In keeping with their deep faith, Glen and Darlees supported many Baptist Churches being built in the rapidly expanding Las Vegas valley with donated labor and material to church projects. He served as a church trustee and on various church building and mission committees. Glen and Darlees financially supported seminary students, missionaries and refugees fleeing Cuba. Glen was also a Sunday School teacher of 6th grade boys, whom he introduced to the outdoors and fishing. Later he led adult bible studies. In 2005, Glen and Darlees retired to Lake Kiowa, TX. Active in local Baptist Churches, he contributed repairs for church buildings in the community and for needy church and community members. Glen also helped during disasters with the Texas Baptist Men. He lived and shared his deep faith by example and by anonymous actions. Glen and Darlees enjoyed traveling our wonderful United States. He felt blessed by God. Gregarious and jovial, Glen made lifelong friendships that included his plumbing customers who often felt part of his extended family. He is survived by his wife of 61 years, Darlees of Lake Kiowa, Texas, and families of his children: Tina Roberts, Plano, Texas, David Maxie, Las Vegas, Nevada, and Greg Maxie, Lovington, New Mexico. His brother, Henry Maxie, Baldwin, Louisiana and sister Anice Dominy, Cleveland, Texas remain. He will be missed by nine Grandchildren, sixteen Great Grandchildren, numerous nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great- nephews. Memorial contributions may be made in Glen's honor to the Oklahoma Baptist Homes for Children which has provided homes for children affected by abuse, abandonment, neglect, and poverty.

We were blessed to meet Glen (and Darlees) at First Southern Baptist Church-Las Vegas. Of course, we trusted him with our plumbing needs. He leaves behind a legacy of godliness, generosity, and professionalism.

What a dear man of the Lord...my first recollection of Glen was seeing him sitting in middle section, close to front of Redrock Baptist Church with his arm around Darlees attending worship! Glen loved the Lord (and Darlees) and it was evident to all.
He is my favorite plumber and I can look at my old house across from RR and see so many jobs he helped me with. I came home from work one afternoon after a large plumbing job at the house...thinking of needing to clean up after the project to find Glenn vacuuming! He was a great teacher to Anthony too!
I know you heard the words well done...thank you Glenn for blessing so very many. Nancy Morony Adcock

Glen was a really nice guy and was our plumber for a number of years. He was very intelligent in his work, and a pleasant person all around. Always had a calm demeanor and sweet personality.

You will be greatly missed.
