Henry Lee Glenn Padgett

Funeral services for Henry Lee Glenn Padgett will be held Tuesday, June 17, at 10 a.m. at Bowers Funeral Home Chapel in Teague with Paul Pryor officiating. Interment will follow at Cotton Gin Cemetery. Family visitation was held Monday evening from 6 to 8 p.m. at the funeral home.
Padgett was born Aug. 20, 1952 in Pasadena, and passed away June 13, 2014. He was baptized at the age of 9 and was 61 at the time of his death. In his intermediate school years he was active in track, baseball and boxing. His family moved from Pasadena to Mexia in 1967 and then to Teague, where he attended Teague High School.
He married Tricia Hall on Dec. 6, 1975. They were married for 25 years until her death separated them in 2001. Padgett worked for Aycock Chevrolet and Leon’s Garage for several years. He loved his profession of auto mechanic and eventually opened his own auto repair shop in Teague. He finally closed his shop and went to work for Northwestern Resources.
He was a devoted husband, father and avid fisherman until an on-the-job injury ended those hobbies. He enjoyed hunting trips to Colorado and Ozona with his buddies and spoke of them often. If he wasn’t working on a vehicle or racing it, he was hunting or fishing.
His wife, Tricia Padgett, mother and father-in-law, Virgie Hamp Hall and father, Roland Padgett, preceded Padgett in death.
He is survived by two children, daughter Brittney Padgett Milligan and husband, Jeremy of Gun Barrel City and son, Christopher Glenn Padgett of Fairfield; mother, Evelyn Padgett of Mexia; sister, Dawn Wettermark and husband, Ricky of Fairfield; one grandson, Marshall. He also leaves numerous aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins and many friends that he made throughout his lifetime.
Serving as pallbearers are Randy Turner, James Sartor, Daniel Gonzalez, Ricky Strader, Junior Mac and David Crundwell.
Padgett’s family would like to express their appreciation and gratitude for the excellent care Glenn received from the nurses and staff of Fairfield Nursing & Rehab. The caring attention he received was such a blessing.
He will forever be remembered and missed.
