  • DIED: April 23, 2018
  • LOCATION: Morrilton, Arkansas

Glen Weldon Mourot, 91, of Morrilton, died Monday, April 23, 2018 at Brookdale Senior Living in Conway, Arkansas. He was born on the family farm at Overcup on March 14, 1927, to John Victor and Quilla Jaquita Mourot. He was a lifelong resident of Conway County.
Glen graduated from Morrilton High School in May 1944 and then joined the military. He served over 2 years, including a year in the Occupation Forces in Japan after World War II. He attended Arkansas Polytechnic College, The Agricultural and Mechanical College of Texas, Baylor University and then graduated from Arkansas State Teachers College with a B.S.E. degree in Business Education. His higher education was made possible by the GI bill.
After the war and upon graduation from college, Glen began working for the state of Arkansas in the Department of Finance and Administration. He worked as a field tax auditor, district tax auditor manager and audit hearing officer. He served as the State Tax Administrator the last 7 years, retiring in September 1987 after 35 years of service to the state of Arkansas.
On November 2, 1951, Glen married Betty Jo Epperson in Morrilton. They were married for 54 years.
One of Glen's greatest joys was working on the family farm. He and his brothers continued the farm business after their dad died. Some of his grandkids best memories are being with Pappaw at the farm; riding horses, finding lost calves, checking out the dairy and just enjoying life! To this day they do not miss a chance to visit the farm. We all looked to Pappaw as a model for his patience and moral compass of where value lies and where our priorities should be.
Glen is preceded in death by his parents; his wife; son, William Clark Mourot; his brothers, Paul and JM Mourot; his sisters, Sue Raines and Geraldine Hatfield.
Glen is survived by his children: Michael Mourot (Janet) of Lake Jackson, TX, and Nanci Stobaugh of Georgetown, TX; grandchildren: Joshua (Rebecca) Mourot of Fayetteville, AR, Jordan (Valerie) Mourot of Pearland, TX, Mallory Mourot (Alex Garcia) of Pearland, TX, Dallas (Patrick) Armstrong of Philadelphia, PA, Chance (Ellen) Stobaugh of Austin, TX, and Paige Stobaugh (Christopher Taylor) of Houston, TX; great-grandchildren: Gage and Luke Mourot, Jake and Everett Mourot, William and Evelyn Armstrong; and many beloved nieces and nephews.
We would like to give a heartfelt thanks to Dana Mourot (nephew) and Tim Mourot (great nephew) for all their love and support for Glen through the years.
Family will receive friends from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. Saturday, May 5, at the funeral home. Private burial to follow. Arrangements are by Harris Funeral Home of Morrilton.
