Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
Edward Allen Glenn, “Eddie”, 75, of Salisbury, NC (formerly of Sugarcreek & Wintersville, Ohio), passed away peacefully on Palm Sunday, April 14th, 2019 at the Glenn Kiser Hospice House. He fought a courageous battle with pancreatic cancer. Edward was born on November 11th, 1943 in Steubenville, Ohio.
He is survived by his wife, Cindi, who he married October 10th 1975; daughters, Tracey McKenzie (husband, Todd) of Salisbury, NC; Tammy Glenn of Covington, GA; and Kathi Lowry (husband, Kevin) of Pickerington, Ohio. Ed also had many grandchildren and a few great grandchildren.
He was preceded in death by parents, Harold and Ruth Glenn; brothers, Charles and Robert; his infant sister, Barbara and grandson, Jefforey.
Ed was an avid Ohio State Buckeye Football fan. He also loved to watch and attend Nascar races often with his best buddy, Bill. In the last few years, Ed also had a passion for riding his ventrac tractor which he said allowed him to relax and enjoy the outdoors all at once.
For 37 years, Ed worked for Wheeling Pittsburg Steel where he picked up the nickname, Eddie. Upon retiring, Ed took on a second career driving the #222 Tanker Truck for Gordon Milk where he met his dear friend, Rodney. This second career was the perfect place for Ed to socialize with people which he loved to do. He used to say, “there weren’t any strangers in this world just people he hadn’t got a chance to meet yet.” His family is sure he is in heaven now greeting lots of new and old friends and family.
Ed was a loving father, husband and friend, and he will be forever missed and remembered as a lovable jokester who adored people.
