The mother of NBA great Charles Barkley, Charcey Glenn, passed away this weekend, at her home in Alabama.
According to the Jefferson County Medical Examiner’s Office, Glenn died on Friday in her hometown of Leeds, east of Birmingham. She was 73.
Deputy medical examiner Derrick Perryman says a report lists the cause of death as kidney failure, and lists the retired American professional basketball player, 52, as the next of kin.
A pastor at First Baptist Church of Leeds says Glenn’s funeral is scheduled there on June 27. Barkley grew up in Leeds before going on to play basketball at Auburn University and then the NBA. He’s a member of the Hall of Fame and co-hosts TNT’s popular “Inside the NBA” show.
Glenn was active in her community and served as chair of the city water board.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Barkley and his loved ones in their time of loss.
