GLENN M. LEIB

 

Glenn M. Leib, 77, of Wadsworth, Ohio, passed away on October 15, 2022. Born in Akron, Ohio on February 7, 1945, he was the son of the late Paul and Klytia Leib. He was also preceded in death by his brothers, Kenny and Jim; and sisters, Carol Starkey, Pauline Julian, and Shirley Julian.

 

A 1963 graduate of Central High School, he served in the Navy on the USS Intrepid, during the Viet Nam war and was awarded the Bronze Star. Glenn was an avid fisherman, hunter, Cleveland sports fan, and a jack-of-all trades. Many memories were made at Bay Point Marina in Marblehead, whether it was fishing or sitting back at the campground, with lifelong friends and family. Very much a man’s man, his children called him the “philosopher,” learning “whatever Glenn says, goes.” His grandchildren, whom he adored, would always say, “Never fear, Papa is here.” With everything Glenn enjoyed in his life journey, his family, was what he loved and enjoyed the most.

 

Leaving a trail of lifelong and wonderful memories are those who survive; his wife, Cheryl; daughters, Jackie Powers, Renee long, Beth Anne Leib Paspalovski; sons, Mike Leib and Mike (Jenny) Powers; grandchildren, Elizabeth, Andrew, Brady, Katie (Cody), Sammi (Jaret), Madison, Max, Ethan, and Taylor; great-grandchildren, Landon, Liam, and Alachi; and numerous nieces and nephews.

 

Honoring Glenn’s wishes, there will be no visitation. A Graveside Service with Military Honors will be held at Ohio Western Reserve National Cemetery, Seville, Ohio, on Tuesday, October 25, 2022 at 1:15 p.m.

 

The family would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to Kelly Julian for everything he has done during this tender time. He has been a blessing. Also, a very special thank you to the entire staff at Barberton Hospital for their kindness, compassion, and accommodating demeanor during this tender time.
