John Edward Glenn, 85, of Salisbury Twp., passed away surrounded by his loving family Tuesday, May 14, 2024 at his residence. He was the husband of Catherine L. (Wagner) Glenn. John was born in Allentown on November 13, 1938 to the late Joseph E. and Alfreda E. (Herbold) Glenn. He served our country faithfully in the U.S. Navy during Peacetime on the USS Miller (DD535). John had worked in the Drywall Trade and then for Kimberly Clark as a sales representative for 20 years retiring in 1998. After retiring he was instrumental in helping his sons operate Archery @ The Glenn, Allentown. John was an avid outdoorsman, finding solace in hunting, fishing, and golfing. He was a proud member of the Tin Can Sailors organization, the Mount Allen Hunting Club, Cresco, and the Southern Lehigh Golf League. John's passion for the great outdoors was only surpassed by his dedication to his family, never missing a grandchild's sporting event.
