Norman Glen Sexton Jr., father and brother, passed away July 2nd, 2022, at Presbyterian Hospital in Albuquerque, New Mexico, from complications arising from COPD.
Glen, as he preferred to be called, was born in Winter Park, Florida on March 12, 1959. An often-misunderstood person because of his physical presence and easily-aroused emotions, and a larger-than-life figure at over 7 feet tall and of large physique, he was truly a gentle giant with a heart of gold and was well-loved by his family and friends, and will be sorely missed.
An avid trout fisherman, he was also well-feared by the trout population on the Chattahoochee in Georgia and among the trout in several other states, who, word has it, will NOT miss him. Glen was also an aquarium enthusiast, and he often referred to himself as the “weird fish guy." He had a huge passion for country music and was a Western-style shootist. He collected beautiful artillery and participated in many shooting events and competitions in Tombstone and surrounding areas, where he was known as the character “Black Jack Fletcher.”
Glen was preceded in death by his parents Norman G. Sexton Sr. and Reva Sexton (Fyffe); grandparents William and Sylvia Sexton and Proctor and Coonie Fyffe; he is survived by his sister Jeanne Sexton (Octavio Solis); his brother Bruce Sexton (Sabine Sexton); his niece Gracie Solis; his son Justin Padgitt (Brittany Padgitt); his daughter Michelle Ramsey; his daughter Nicole Hart (Justin Hart); many grandchildren he absolutely treasured and adored: Callan Hart, Aiden Padgitt, Zoe Padgitt, Scarlett Hart, Jameson Ramsey, Jaxon Ramsey and one unborn grandchild Baby Hart; his best friend of 32 years, who is his “brother-from-another-mother,” Patrick Puckett; his loving “baby sister” Carey Appolonia and her husband Tony; a wide variety of other family members, friends and “adopted family” from several states; a variety of ex-wives, ex-girlfriends and acquaintances of the opposite sex.
Though he has left us and his spirit has taken to the sky, his memory will never die, because of the life lessons, memories and stories that will live on. Glen, brother, we’ll see you again someday, but until then, watch over all your loved ones. Fly high, be happy and free.
