Read more about the life story of Michael and share your memory.
Michael (Mike) William Glenn, 69, passed away unexpectedly due to complications surrounding a surgery on July 10, 2023. He was born on December 15, 1953, in York, Maine, to the late Paul and Doris Glenn.
Michael was a devoted husband, brother, father, and grandfather. He is survived by his beloved wife of 23 years, Andrea Dodd Williams, his three beautiful daughters from his first marriage with Peggy Leslie, Starr Cutler, Halley Smith, and Candra Glenn, his best friend and brother Paul Glenn and his adoring sister and confidant Linda Pratt. Michael was also blessed with seven grandchildren – Kyana, Kayman, Kai, Lilah, Riley, Silas, and Elijah – who brought him immense joy and delight.
He is predeceased by brother Sammy Thompson, and beloved grandmother Isabel Raynes, and he will forever be loved by sister-in-law Lori Glenn, brother-in-law Chuckie Pratt, and countless cousins and friends who will dearly miss him.
As an ardent explorer, passionate seeker, and curious lifelong learner, Michael found joy in discovering natural and cultural marvels while treasuring moments spent with his loved ones. A captivating storyteller, Michael effortlessly drew people into his tales. Whether recounting thrilling motorcycle escapades, sharing discoveries made on his electric mountain bike or Vespa scooter, or delving into in-depth knowledge of aviation (as a licensed pilot, hang glider, and occasional dreamer, Michael knew how to soar), he also shared his love of dogs and horses, including his faithful dog Brie.
A world traveler and walking encyclopedia, Michael was always eager to share his love of knowledge and would discuss any topic presented to him.
Endlessly inventive, Michael was not only a well-renowned cabinet maker and finish carpenter but also the creative mind behind the “cresta sled,” a handcrafted sled he successfully raced. Known affectionately as “Uncle Danger” by Andrea’s family, this moniker encapsulated his many eclectic hobbies and passions.
As the oldest son in a family of three, Michael provided wisdom, wit, and emotional support to his brother and sister, his three daughters, many nieces and nephews, and seven grandchildren. Friends were easily made wherever he went. He possessed an extraordinary ability to find beauty in the small, precious things, and he eagerly shared this sense of wonder with everyone he encountered.
A Celebration of Life will be held at The Black Birch Restaurant in Kittery, ME, on August 6th, 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. In lieu of flowers, the family urges friends and loved ones to take a trip or walk in the woods and take in the beauty of our world, as Michael so often did.
Michael's passing has left a tremendous void in the hearts of those who loved him. He was always there for his friends, family, and neighbors in their times of need, whether it involved delivering an emergency generator in the dead of night, working on loved ones' homes, or offering unwavering encouragement to his younger sister, Linda, in her real estate career. Michael provided steadfast support, lending a helping hand, installing windows, building decks, and drawing on his extensive construction expertise. Everything he did, he did out of profound love.
The world mourns the loss of this remarkable individual, and those who knew and loved him grieve the absence of his unique voice, caring presence, and good humor. We extend our heartfelt condolences to his loving wife, caring family, and many friends.
