Ridgefield, WA - Glenn Williams passed away on September 12, after a short illness, in the loving presence of his family.
Glenn was born in Lawrence and raised in Andover. He attended Andover High School in the class of 1958. Glenn always had fond memories of his childhood in Andover, where he loved to sing and bowl, he spent many summers as a life guard at Pomps Pond, and he always admired his older brother, Richard. In Andover, he developed a life-long love of sports. During high school, Glenn was a hometown hero with his baseball and basketball skills. It was his baseball skills that took him to play baseball in college at the University of Southern California (USC) and of course transitioned him from the East Coast to the West Coast where he spent the rest of his life. After graduating from college, Glenn enjoyed a 34-year career as an elementary school teacher in Carson, Calif., but his greatest accomplishment was his daughter, Jennifer. Nothing made him happier than to spend his retirement years in Ridgefield, Washington, with Jennifer's family.
Glenn is survived by his sister Wendy E. Murphy of Andover; his daughter, Jennifer Williams of Ridgefield, Wash., and grandchildren, JayCee, Brynnlee, and Bryton, all of Ridgefield, Wash. He was predeceased in death by his sister Joyce; and brother Richard; as well as his parents Morris and Adella Williams.

Glenn was a good guy and a good athlete and above all, a great friend. I'll always warmly remember the year we were room mates in Los Angeles and his 57 Mercury Turnpike Cruiser Convertible. We miss you Glenn.
