Glenn Monroe “Wildman” Matheson, 69, of Hiddenite, passed away May 29, 2021, after a courageous battle with cancer at Gordon Hospice House.
He was born November 16, 1951, in Alexander County, to the late John Ray Matheson and Mary Marie Fincannon Matheson. Glenn was of Christian faith, a loving husband, brother, uncle, and friend. He retired from truck driving after 30 years.
He loved his wife, Vickie, for almost 48 years. He had a love for his “fur babies,” the Apple City Street Rodders, and collecting things. Glenn always enjoyed telling jokes and stories that could make you laugh for days. He had a heart of gold and was always willing to help a friend out.

Glenn was raised by his grandmother, Ollie Sue Fincannon.
