In Loving
Memory

Glynn E. Castle

June 19, 1946 – June 6, 2024

Glynn Eugene Castle, 77, of Ashland, Virginia, died Thursday, June 6, 2024. He was surrounded by his loving family in the preceding days and his wife, Jean, was by his side, holding his hand when he left to go to heaven.

Glynn is survived by his loving wife of 55 years, Jean Evans Castle; three children, Jennifer Balut (Chris), Stephen Castle (Sheri), and Stephanie Castle; five grandchildren, Sarah Castle, Stephen Castle, Samuel Castle, Ian Balut, and Kathryn Balut; one brother, Bud Castle (Joan) of Birmingham, AL; and one sister, Elizabeth Cothern of Walls, MS.  He is also survived by multiple cousins, nieces, and nephews in addition to his large church family and friends.

Glynn was a member of Mount Vernon Baptist Church for 27 years.  Music and singing were a lifelong passion. He started in musical theater in college at Memphis State University and was a member of Phi Mu Alpha fraternity.  He has been a devoted member of the Adult choir in every church he has attended from the time he was 16 years old. Glynn spent his professional career working at Hartford Insurance Company and the Virginia Municipal League as a Certified Safety Professional.

Glynn was known for his jokes, funny stories, and enjoyed driving his pontoon boat.  He was immensely proud of his children and grandchildren.  Glynn came to as many concerts, swim meets, and sporting events as he could attend for his children and grandchildren.  He was often seen zipping around on his red mobility scooter at church and in the community. Our family is heartbroken but will forever cherish the memories and love we have for him.

The family will receive friends for visitation from 5 to 7 p.m. on Monday, June 10,  and from 11 to 11:45 a.m. on Tuesday, June 11,  at Mount Vernon Baptist Church 11220 Nuckols Road, Glen Allen, 23060.  The funeral service will be held at noon at Mt. Vernon Baptist Church. Interment will follow at the Mount Vernon Mausoleum Chapel.  In lieu of flowers,  donations can be made to the Mount Vernon Baptist Church music program.
