POPULAR SINGER HAS DIED AT 86


Glenn Robertson Yarbrough (January 12, 1930 – August 11, 2016)

Yarbrough was a folk singer and lead vocalist with The Limeliters between
1959 and 1963, and had a successful solo career, recording on various
labels.

Yarbrough lost his ability to sing due to complications from throat surgery
at the age of 80. In his last year or so of his life, he suffered from dementia
and was cared for by his daughter Holly in Nashville, Tennessee. Holly
recorded the album "Annie Get Your Gun" with her father in 1997. In May
2016, Holly announced that her father’s health had declined, and announced 
today that he had died the previous night.
