John W Glass

March 4, 1956 — June 22, 2024


Our family is heartbroken to announce the passing of John William Glass on Saturday June 22, 2024, in his 68th year.

John was born March 4, 1956, the first son to Jack and Francis (Sansotta) Glass. He graduated from Marion Harding High School, class of 1974, and attended Kalamazoo College. He was a self- employed contractor.

He is survived by his mother, three brothers: Bob, Jeff, and Vince, one sister Teresa (Doug) Lust, special cousin Mario Sansotta, and several nieces, nephews, and cousins.

John leaves behind his daughters: Adene Thomas and Allison Pennington, five granddaughters: Havyn, Roayn, Haise, Remie, and Jalyn, and one great-grandson coming in November.

He is preceded in death by his father Jack, sister-in-law Dena, and the love of his life Julie Pennington.

John loved fishing and mushroom hunting. He adored all the girls in his family the most. He will be sadly missed by family and so many friends.

Thank you to Terry and Dustin for all the trips to the James.

A mass at St. Mary’s will be held at a later date. Moments of remembrance may be left online at
