Glenn F. Shreve Sr., 69, of Beechwood Avenue, Canadohta Lake, Pa., went to be with the Lord on Wednesday, February 10, 2010, and was with his family until he passed.
Glenn was born September 4, 1940, the son of the late Wayne L. and Marie H. (Rowbottom) Shreve of Canadohta Lake.
Glenn was known also as "Sarge" due to his military career, serving in the United States Army from 1959 to 1999, when he retired. He also served in the Vietnam War in 1969 and 1970. After his military retirement, he went to work at Snap-tite Coupler Division in Union City, Pa., and retired from there in 1993.
Glenn loved to fish and hunt and if he wasn't working in between you would find him spending time with his family and friends, whom he loved and cherished very much.
Besides his parents, he was also preceded in death by his wife and soulmate of 42 1/2 years, Maryann M. Shreve, on March 20, 2003.
He is survived by his daughter, Anna-Marie Shreve of Canadohta Lake; his sons, Glenn F. Shreve Jr. and his wife, Eve, of Corry, SPC James C. Shreve and his wife, Tamara, of Coatsville, Pa., Dennis L. Shreve and his wife, Tammy, of Wattsburg, Pa., David L. Shreve and his wife, Melody, of Union City, Pa., and Quinton R. Shreve and his wife, Kelly, of Union City, Pa.; two brothers, Wayne Shreve and his wife, Carolyn, of Warren, Pa., and Jack Shreve of Erie, Pa.; 18 grandchildren; 10 great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.
