Glenn R. Green, Jr. 69, passed away Monday, July 20, 2020 at Hartford Hospital. Born on April 14, 1951, in Portsmouth VA, Glenn was the son of the late Glenn R.

On March 18,1972 he married his wife Sheila A. (Maiurano) Green in Norwich, NY. He was married to her for 48-years before his passing.
Glenn went on as a civilian and worked at Morton Norwich Pharmaceutical Company as an Animal Care Taker.

He then was employed at the Watervliet Arsenal in Troy, NY as an Environmental Protection Specialist until his retirement in 2006.
He was a devoted husband, father, and grandfather to his family. And you were in for a lengthy debate if you dared to open the conversation to politics let alone dared to eat the Pringle’s. He enjoyed Washin-Ryu Karate, Coaching T-Ball, Video taping school football games, and attending School Basketball games. He loved camping with his family, especially when the grandchildren were with him. He was famous with his grandkids and would make them laugh when he would sing “Who let the dogs out” and “ Put the lime in the coconut”. And let us not exclude his one and only Chocolate Lab “Max” who knew how to get peanut butter put in his Kong-he actually would pick the kong up an fling it into his lap got his attention. It worked every time.
He is survived by his wife, Sheila of Goshen, CT., his two children: John (Tara) of Torrington, CT., Tania (Christopher) Woodward of Greenwich, NY., Jose (Ana Mejia) Gonzalez along with his two children: Isabelle and Zoey (who all became honorary members of the family).
