Glenn grew up in Chicago and graduated from Lane Tech High School. He started working at Ramcel Engineering Company in high school and went on to a 45 year career there as a highly skilled tool and die maker. Those who worked with Glenn often mentioned he was the best tool & die maker they had ever worked with.
Glenn met the love of his life Ann on a blind date. They were a perfect match and married on April 15, 1967. Glenn and Ann lived in Des Plaines, IL where they raised their daughter Jill. Jill was the apple of Glenn’s eye and his love and dedication to her was without question one of his greatest achievements in life. Jill and Glenn were in Indian Princesses with the YMCA and enjoyed many adventures together with lasting memories.
Glenn enjoyed scuba diving, traveling, and corvettes. He was a life long bowler, having multiple 300 games over his career. He was a diehard Chicago Blackhawks, Bears and Cubs fan. He was the type of person always willing to lend a helping hand and was a great neighbor and friend to many.
When Glenn and Ann retired, they moved to Goodyear, AZ to enjoy a life of sun and relaxing. They loved to travel and being active members of their Church always volunteering and serving others.
Glenn was a Grandfather to twin girls, Lauren and Anna who affectionately called him PAPPAP. Glenn enjoyed his grandchildren, always going to sporting events and school concerts. A favorite Christmas Eve tradition was when he would read Twas The Night Before Christmas to the girls.
Glenn had a full life of traveling, doing things he loved, spending time with family and friends. His legacy will live on through those who knew and loved him. His mark left on this world will remain forever, as a great son, brother, husband, father, father-in-law, grandfather, uncle and friend.
He is now at peace and reunited with Ann and the rest of his loved ones where they can be together for eternity and celebrate their lives together.
