Bob Glenn
   Passed away suddenly this past Thursday afternoon (January 21, 2016), of a heart attack.
 Bob was the friendly man with the inimitable bouncy/syncopated bowing style who often tapped both feet in rhythm while he played, in the style of French Canadian fiddling, which he loved, studied, and performed with his wife Margaret.  When he wasn't working on a
BobGlenn.jpg drilling rig in the Gulf of Mexico he could be found at numerous jams, festivals, and contra dances all over Northeast Ohio, most noteable with Mud In Yer Eye.
 
   Funeral services for Bob will be held at 11 a.m. this Friday, January 29, 2016, at Our Lady Help of Christians Parish, 8240 Buffham Rd., Lodi, Ohio. Father John Mullee will officiate. The family will receive friends the preceding day, Thursday, January 28, 2016 from 4 p.m. until 8 p.m., at Waite and Son Funeral Home, 765 N. Court St., Medina, Ohio.
 
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests making a donation to the charity of your choice.
