Charles R. Glennie, 63, a retired Civil Aeronautics Board official, died of cancer Dec. 10 at a Vero Beach, Fla., hospital.

He worked for the CAB for 35 years before retiring as assistant chief of accounting and research planning in 1970.

Mr. Glennie was a U.S. representative at the 1970 conference of the International Civil Aviation Organization in Montreal.

He received a certificate of honorary award from the CAB in 1956 for his help in the development of the revised uniform system of accounts for commercial airlines.

Mr. Glennie was a native of Cottonwood Falls, Kan., and came here in the mid-1930s. He earned a degree in accounting at Strayer College in 1939.

He served in the Army Air Corps during World War II.

Mr. Glennie had lived in Washington and Springfield, Va., before moving to the southwest after his retirement. He moved to Florida in 1973.

Survivors include his wife, Jean, of the home in Vero Beach; a sister, Margaret, and a brother, Howard, both of Wichita, Kan.

The family suggests that expressions of sympathy be in the form of contributions to the Harry Anna Children's Hospital, c/o Elk's Lodge No. 1774, or Meals on Wheels, both in Vero Beach.
