In Celebration of MHS Class of 1958

A Tribute and Celebration

We were the class of 1958, members of the Greatest Generation as well as children of the Greatest Generation. Born in 1940, we are also called members of the Traditional Generation.

Our childhood, post World War II, "was the best of times . . . it was the age of wisdom . . . it was the epoch of belief . . .it was the season of Light . . . it was the spring of hope . . . we had everything before us . . .we were all going direct to Heaven . . . ." (A Tale of Two Cities, Charles Dickens.) At least, that's the way I felt about it. We were truly blessed.

Harrell Glenmore “Glen” McQuage, Jr., 78, of Paducah, KY, passed away peacefully early on Thur., Apr. 12, 2018, after living with congestive heart failure for 14 years. He was surrounded by his family.
Glen is preceded in death by his parents, Harrell “Mac” McQuage and Mamie Lucile McBryde McQuage of Meridian, Miss. He is survived by his loving wife, Rebecca Adams McQuage; two daughters, Angela McQuage (James Barry) and Elizabeth McQuage; six in-law siblings, Emma and Hal Hicks, Denise and David Knupp, and Alyson and Jess Adams; four nieces, Kagney Adams, Lindsey Adams, Brandi Carl, and Melanie Knupp; five nephews, C.W. Adams, Connor Adams, Andrew Adams, Quaid Adams, Paul Hicks; and many great- nieces and -nephews.
In his youth, Glen was a dedicated athlete, playing basketball and excelling in track/long distance running. After high school, Glen joined the Air National Guard where he was “one hell of a typist.” He went on to earn his bachelor’s degree from the University of Southern Mississippi and his master’s degree in social work from Tulane University.
Glen spent his career helping others as a licensed clinical social worker and psychotherapist, specializing in helping individuals struggling with substance abuse. He was passionate about his work and the individuals he helped, as he had struggled with alcoholism himself. He found sobriety through Alcoholics Anonymous.
Throughout his life, Glen maintained a passion for music, as he was well known for blaring Bob Dylan and Rush. He was dedicated to his faith and sharing God’s love as a student of “A Course in Miracles.” After retirement, his focuses in life were his wife, his daughters, and continuing his spiritual growth. Glen will be remembered for his unconditional love, his great sense of humor, and his eccentric fashion choices.
Visitation will be at First Presbyterian Church, 200 N. 7 St., Paducah, KY, at 10:00AM on Sat., Apr. 21. A memorial service celebrating Glen’s life and the impact it had will immediately follow at 11:00AM. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the American Heart Association in Glen’s honor. Donations may be made at…/FunRais…/NAT-MTIFEFUNraise….

O God our Father, Creator of all the living,
we entrust to Your gentle care
all those we love who have gone before us;
and have gone to their rest in the hope of rising again. . . .
Eternal rest, grant unto Glen McQuage, O Lord,
and let perpetual light shine upon him.

May the souls of the faithful departed
through the mercy of God rest in peace. Amen.
