Glenn Crandall 1929-2018
CORTLAND — Glenn Crandall, 89, passed away peacefully on Monday, Feb. 12, 2018, at Lake Vista Assisted Living in Cortland.
He was born March 16, 1929, in Warren.
Glenn grew up in Champion and graduated from Champion High School. After high school, he joined the Army during the Korean War and proudly served at Fort Sill, Okla., where he also married his high school sweetheart, Doris, in 1948. They returned to Ohio, where Glenn was employed at Copperweld Steel as chief metallurgist for 27 years.
Glenn ventured into a new career at Burnett Pools in Cortland and enjoyed many years with the Burnett family, retiring as vice president of sales.
Glenn and “Do’d” raised their family in Champion, and eventually settled in Cortland for the past 30 years. They lived a very full life in nearly 70 years of marriage, wintering in Florida and traveling extensively. Glenn loved his family, enjoyed his grandchildren, watching and playing golf, a “5 o’clock glass of wine,” the Buckeyes, the Tribe, and yes, the Browns.
Glenn’s love of growing herbs and vegetables led him to obtain a Master Gardner certification from the Ohio State University, after he retired.
Glenn is survived by his wife, Doris, who resides at Armstrong Memory Care in Champion; daughter, Judy (Jerome) Foskey of Cortland; son, Gary (Linda) Crandall of Howland; granddaughter, Jill (Doug) Hughes of Atlanta; granddaughter, Nicole (Jim) Martyniuk of Burlington, Ontario; great-granddaughter, Rose Marie Hughes of Atlanta; and several nieces and nephews.
The family will have a private memorial service at a later date.
They request any donations be made to the Alzheimer Network c/o of the Crandall Family, 4214 Market St., Youngstown, Ohio 44512, to combat the disease that afflicts Glenn’s spouse Doris and so many others they have met in their mother’s journey.
Arrangements are being handled by the Peter Rossi and Son Memorial Chapel, 1884 North Road NE, Warren, Ohio 44483.
