Glenn Albert Treadwell

Glenn Albert Treadwell, 71, of New Braunfels, passed away Aug. 1, 2021. He was born Oct. 29, 1949 in El Campo to Lanus Albert and Clara Brodsgaard Treadwell. Glenn was a 1968 graduate of El Campo High School and a member of the 1967 Ricebirds state finalist football team. He was later awarded a scholarship to Baylor University for football upon graduation. Glenn was a farmer and rancher in his early stages of life, and later owned a commercial long-haul trucking business. He enjoyed spending time with his family, visiting the Gulf Coast and being surrounded by close friends.

Glenn always had a smile on his face, a special wit and humor and never a complaint. He made people feel welcomed when meeting him, as if he had known them forever. Let’s just say, he never met a stranger. He was someone you could talk to when you needed an ear to listen, and a straight answer of advice in return. Someone that taught life lessons without sugar coating them. We as a family, all learned so much from such a strong, loving man. He went through many hardships, but was always there for others when needed.

You will forever be in our hearts; our voice of reason and wisdom to guide us to be better people.

He is survived by his four children and four grandchildren; son, Heith and Anna Treadwell of Pflugerville; daughters, Rachael Treadwell and Lisa Hause of Austin, Whitney Treadwell of Morales, Megan and Derek Luchak of New Braunfels; grandchildren, Porter Treadwell, Brailey Luchak, Ivy Jo Luchak and Octavia Luchak and brother, Bruce Treadwell of El Campo.

Glenn was preceded in death by his parents; his sister, Kathryn Treadwell and his brother, Lanus Treadwell.

A celebration of life will be held at The Limo Station, 901 North Mechanic, El Campo, at 2:30 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 11.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you please make a donation in our father’s memory to the Parkinson’s Foundation, to improve care and advance research toward finding a cure.
