Glenn Lawson, 68, of Kingsport went to be with the Lord on Saturday, November 14, 2020 after a brief battle with cancer, with his loving wife and granddaughters by his side. He was born St. Paul, VA on November 30, 1951, but resided most of his life in Kingsport TN. Glenn had served six years in the National Guard Reserve out of Gate City, VA.
