Mr. Lindberg Glaze, age 83 of Elberton, Georgia entered his eternal rest on Saturday, August 19, 2023.

Mr. Lindberg Glaze was born in Wilkes County, GA on October 31, 1939, to the late Mrs. Terry Lee Coleman Glaze and the late Mr. Frank Collins Glaze, Sr. He is preceded in death by one sister, Mrs. Estelle Glaze Hudson.

He was a faithful, faithful and dedicated Deacon and member of Cades Chapel Baptist Church for numerous years until his health declined. With a 4 the grade education he accomplished a legacy that will live on formerly Glaze Tires and Repair Service and the business was passed down to his grandson which is now known as RG Tires and Repair Service. He served Elbert County and many surrounding counties. He taught his sons, grandsons, several nephews, brother, one daughter and cousin; he gave everybody a chance who wanted to learn.

He loved his family and friends, and he always told us, “Don’t’ take no wooden nickels” and he loved to say BANG! BANG! Lindberg was well known and loved by everyone that met him he would flash that Gold Teeth smile.
