Glenn L. Vernon, former director of Mobile Baptist Citronelle Assembly, died April 29. He was 78.

Vernon received a bachelor’s degree in English and drama from Mississippi College in Clinton, Miss., and attended graduate school at Louisiana State University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. From 1966 to 1999, Vernon served as the director of Mobile Baptist Citronelle Assembly, now known as Camp Whispering Pines, a multifunctional campground that hosts numerous youth and church events throughout the year. 

Vernon founded Camp SMILE (Special Meaning in Life’s Expectations) in 1972 and began serving as a language missionary to the American Indians in 1988. He also helped start and develop several American Indian churches in south Alabama. He was actively involved in both Camp SMILE and Citronelle Memorial Baptist Church until his death. Vernon was preceded in death by his wife of 40 years, Sylvia. He is survived by four children and two grandchildren.
