Glenn Richard Normile
On Wednesday, June 26, 2019, Glenn Richard Normile passed away in Lansing, Kansas, at the age of 69.
Glenn was born on April 8, 1950 in New York City, New York. He graduated from Brown University in 1972 with an A.B. In History, and especially enjoyed his time with the Alpha Delta Phi fraternity. Upon graduation, he worked for the Brown department of public safety, and later served as the Director of public safety at Wheaton College (MA), Haverford College (PA), and Knox College (IL). He is survived by his wife of over forty years, Kathleen (Lewis) Normile, as well as his children, Brian Normile and Andrea Thueme (LTC Andrew Thueme, USA), and three grandchildren, Adaline, Arthur, and Agnes Thueme.
Glenn traveled all over the world with his parents, the late Capt. W.G. Normile, USN (Ret.) and Madeline (Rust) Normile, to include Texas, Germany, and Holland, but he always held a special place in his heart for Port Washington, New York. After he survived a brain aneurysm in 2007, he organized a special elementary school reunion that brought many former classmates back together to honor a beloved teacher.
A lifelong baseball fan, Glenn was the past president of the Lower Merion, PA little league association, as well as a coach for many years. He had a knack for bringing people together, whether that was on the baseball field, online, or in his fraternity. His wit, sense of humor, and love for his family and friends will be sorely missed.
A private memorial ceremony will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, his family requests that individuals volunteer their time with a local youth organization.
