Obituary of Glenn C. Granger Jr.
Tuesday, September 5th.
Born in in 1949, Glenn was destined for greatness as the winner of Fairport’s most beautiful baby of 1950. In his family, greatness was synonymous with Notre Dame University, and Glenn graduated from ND in 1971, was a member of the marching band, and a lifelong, passionate fan! He received his M.S.Ed. from Nazareth College and taught Special Education for over thirty years at BOCES#1 in Fairport. An avid supporter of kids, he spent many years coaching JV Baseball and Girls Basketball at East Rochester, as well as coaching and umpiring for Spencerport Junior Baseball.
Glenn loved serving his community. He served on the Spencerport School Board; Spencerport Ambulance, including a tenure as president; and Spencerport Village Board, serving as mayor for part of the time. Glenn loved to have a good time and for many years led the Midvale Lawn Chair Brigade through July 4th parades in Fairport. After his retirement from BOCES, he served as President of the Faun Lake Board of Directors, the summer place he so loved.
Glenn was predeceased by his beloved son, Geoff; his parents, Glenn and Vivian; and his brother, Peter. He is survived by his loving wife, Maureen; daughter, Erin (Kory) Khuns; daughter-in-law, Donna Granger (Randy Minnamon); and the lights of his life – his grandchildren Sidney and Cameron Khuns, and Josh and Mikayla Granger. We will forever miss him.

His funeral mass will be celebrated Monday, 9/11 at 2:30pm at St. John the Evangelist Church, 55 Martha Street, Spencerport.
