Obituary for Ronald “Ron” Glanz

Ronald “Ron” Glanz, 77, of Midland, Michigan, crossed over into eternity peacefully on Sunday, January 21, 2018, with his wife by his side.



Ron was born June 12, 1940, in Napoleon, Ohio to Otto and Martha Glanz. He graduated from Liberty Center High School in 1958.



He dutifully served in the Armed Forces in Korea. Ron enjoyed a long career at Dow Chemical, retiring after 35 years from the Plastic Lined Pipe Division. Bowling, ice fishing, traveling in his RV, polka music, pizza and donuts were some of his favorite pastimes. In his retirement he was blessed to serve as the Midland High School parking lot security guard for 16 1/2 years, and always smiled when he talked about the kids at school.



Ron is survived by his wife, Garlene, children, step children, grandchildren and great grandchildren, sister Florence Bryant, brotherJames (Judy) Glanz, and many nieces and nephews. In addition to his parents, Ron was preceded in death by one brother Norman.

Burial will follow at Homer Cemetery. Ron’s family will receive friends at the church Saturday from 11 a.m. until time of service. Those planning an expression of sympathy are asked to consider a donation to the fund set aside to be distributed amongst the many charities Ron supported. His family would like to thank their family and friends, especially the wonderful people at Midland High School for all their support during this difficult time.
