It is with great sadness that we share the passing of our friend, U. Glenn Daughtridge.

Ulyss Glenn Daughtridge, aged 79, went home to be with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on Saturday, April 25, 2015. Funeral services were held on April 28, at First Baptist Church in Tarboro with the Rev. Eric Crowe officiating. Burial followed in Pineview Cemetery in Rocky Mount.

He was born in Edgecombe County on June 3, 1935 to the late Ulyss "Doc" Daughtridge and Grace Williford Daughtridge.

Glenn received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Administration from the University of North Carolina.

He worked for thirty five years across eastern North Carolina with Carolina Telephone and Telegraph and Sprint, serving in various managerial positions. Upon his retirement, he founded his own company, "Humor With a Purpose", and served as a motivational speaker, providing business, leadership and team-building training to organizations across the United States. Glenn was also a celebrated conference keynote speaker and emcee, always delighting audiences with his "down home, country boy" humor.

He was a devoted servant to the community, holding leadership roles with the Jaycees (President), Kiwanis (President), United States Power Squadron (various positions including Commander, Rocky Mount Power Squadron, National Nominating Committee Chairman and Aide to the National Commander), United Way (various positions including President, Campaign Chairman) and the Armed Forces Communication and Electronic Association (President). He volunteered countless hours to other community organizations and took particular pride in mentoring college students about to enter the workforce. For his proven record of extraordinary service to the state of North Carolina, Glenn was recognized with the Order of the Long Leaf Pine. A proud Eagle Scout, he also served as a District Chairman with the Boy Scouts of America. Glenn was an active member of First Baptist Church, Tarboro, N.C., where he served as a deacon and on numerous committees.

Glenn loved conversation, storytelling and making people laugh. He cherished time with immediate and extended family, particularly enjoying "making memories" with his children and grandchildren at his beloved Pamlico. He was a loyal follower of University of North Carolina athletics, especially devoted to the "Tarheels" basketball team.

To share memories and kind words of Mr. Daughtridge, visit the memory wall.
