Galen Pennington, longtime resident of Cabool, Missouri, passed away in his home on Saturday, October 16, 2010.
Galen was a well-known farmer in the area dealing both with cattle and hay. He had an interest in antique farm equipment and shared that interest with a few good friends. He was a quiet man but was not a stranger to good conversation.
Galen was the son of Bert and Ruth Gitt Pennington. He was born July 22, 1924 and lived most of his life in Cabool.
He married Mary Strickland Pennington on August 4, 1952 and they have two children, Shirley Pennington of Ironton, Missouri, and Bill Pennington of Wichita, Kansas. Galen also has two grandchildren, Laura Pennington Pham with her husband, Quy, and Lucas Pennington, both of Wichita, Kansas.
Galen was preceded in death by his parents and one infant brother, Merle Pennington. He walked with his Creator out amongst the wild animals and in the grasses of the fields and under the blue sky of heaven until he was called home. He will be missed.
A private family service will be held at Elliott-Gentry-Carder Funeral Home of Cabool. Memorials can be made in lieu of flowers to the charity of your choice.
