Biography - GLENN R. EASLEY

Glenn R. Easley, member of the firm of Levitt & Easley, was born December 27, 1898, at Dix, Illinois, leaving there when six years of age, with his parents when they moved to Wayne City, Illinois. In 1911 the family came to Clay City, where his father, E. E. Easley, entered the furniture and undertaking business.

Glenn, after finishing his school work, enlisted in assisting his father at the store. In 1925 he bought out the ice business here and continued to help at the store at spare times. In 1928 he leased the Indian filling station on South Main street, at the old Bothwell & Hopkins corner which he managed in conjunction with the ice business until October, 1929, when he quit the filling station and entered into the coal business with Mr. Levitt, retaining the ice business in connection.

No, he isn't married — naturally that assertion brings another question that many will ask: why? We don't know — he's old enough and don't seem to be a bit backward.

But, he's a booster for Clay City and a member of the Boosters Club and an-ice man.
