Edward Glenn Arberry (known to his family and friends as Glenn), was the fifth of seven children born to the union of Henry James and Ruth Arberry. Glenn was born on February 17, 1961 in the city of San Diego, California.
Glenn attended Sherman Elementary, Memorial Junior High and later received his GED. He was later employed by the San Diego Unified School District.
While attending Memorial Junior High School, Glenn met his school mate Ruth Helen Jenkins. On February 9, 1980, they were blessed with his only child, a beautiful bouncing baby girl named Shanika Arberry.
Glenn was a man of strong faith and principles. He accepted Jesus Christ as his personal Savior, and became a member of the New Creation Church under the leadership of Pastor Amos Johnson. Glenn loved singing and served faithfully as a choir member.
Glenn had a magnetic personality drawing everyone in that met him. He loved music and had a strong passion for sports. He loved good food… and he could eat! He loved a good debate, and that’s where his sense of humor would come alive and shine.
On February 27, 2020, Glenn Arberry left time and entered into eternity. He was preceded in death by his parents Henry James and Ruth Arberry; two brothers James and Terry Arberry; and sister Patricia Arberry Williams. Left to treasure his legacy and memory are his daughter Shanika Arberry; two granddaughters Jakiya Blaney and Kaylah Young; brother Clyde Arberry; sisters Connie Arberry, and Teleda Arberry; along with a host of aunts, cousins, and friends. All of whom he loved dearly.
