Glenn married Gloria Elgan in 2010. They enjoyed playing dominoes, bowling, dancing and traveling. He also enjoyed singing, strumming his guitar, playing the piano and creating memories with family.

Glenn leaves a legacy of love and will be remembered for many things including his smile and being a consummate encourager, a comforter and a trusted advisor.

Glenn was preceded in death by his parents, his wife, Charlotte and his sisters Naomi McCann and Betty Green.

Glenn is survived by his wife Gloria; daughters, Lori Reeves and husband, John Paul, Sheri Untrecht and husband, Ian; step son, Sean Elgan; step daughters, Brandi Daniel and husband, Greg, Ashley Studinski and husband, Ian; grandchildren, Nicholas and Danielle Untrecht, Julian Elgan and wife, Addie, Victoria and Zach Elgan, Lane and Bella Daniel, Brooklynn and Jadynn Studinski; great-grandchild, Isaac Elgan.

I can remember the times that JC and I were at Gloria and Glenn’s. Glenn would pull out his guitar and start singing and we would join in. He was such a gracious host. We always had a good time with him because he was a very happy person and just great to be around. JC and I will miss you very much, Glenn.
