Age 77 of MacIntosh Lane in Bethany Village and formerly of Chambers Rd. in Horseheads went to be with the Lord and Savior on Sunday, July 8, 2012.
Glenn was born December 27, 1934 in Athens, PA, to Clyde and Beulah (Bennett) Hunsinger.  In addition to his parents, Glenn was predeceased by his daughter, Pamela Kish, brother, Clyde Hunsinger and sister, Doris Howe.

Glenn married Mary Romagnoli in Portsmouth, NH, Dec. 28, 1958. He was stationed at the Groton, CT Naval Submarine Base where he served as submariner and Chief Hospital Corpsman for 13 years.
He completed his 26 year Naval Career as the Lead Chief and Medical Officer for the Naval Reserve Center in Elmira.

Glenn attended Corning Community College receiving his degree in Human Service. He then went to work for the US Post Office in Elmira.  With all his employment, Glenn truly enjoyed his part-time work over the years assisting many area funeral homes as a Funeral Attendant, where his friendly smile, kind words and compassion comforted countless families.

Glenn is survived by his wife of 53 years, Mary Hunsinger;
Their sons,

Glenn Jr. (Sharon) Hunsinger of Virginia Beach, VA;
Son-in-law, Paul Kish of Corning, NY;
Brother-in-law, LaVern Howe of Milan, PA;
Eight grandchildren; eight great grandchildren, two nieces and two nephews.

Glenn was referred to as “Doc”, “Chief”, “Dad”, “Uncle Glenn”, but his most beloved name was “Grandpy”. Glenn and Mary enjoyed years traveling with their RV and spending time with friends.
Most of all Glenn loved spending time with his family, camping, poolside, or backyard barbequing. Glenn will be forever remembered by his family and friends.

Mary, Mary, I am crying with you !!! I know it''s a little late, but I just found out yesterday (11/06/12) of "Bubber''s" death, in the Taps section of the FRA monthly magazine. As you may remember, Bubber and I roomed together at the NavHosp, Portsmouth. What a neat and good guy. We had fun, driving (or "cruisin''") around Portsmouth in his Olds. That goes back aways, but what fond memories ! and for you too, right ?.
The next time I saw Glenn, was in 1960 along the water parking in San Diego.
Joyce and I were parked (someplace) and I was in the trunk looking for something, when some crazy guy comes up and slaps me in the back, practically
driving me into the trunk. And who else but the "Bubber"!! haha I don''t recall much between that episode and 24 Sep 1960, up in Anaheim, where "the Bubber" stood up as my Best Man (indeed!!!!) at Joyce and my wedding.
Mary, David and Glenn Jr., I am truley sorry for your loss!!!! Isn''t is funny: here it is 52 years later, and I cry for you and "Bubber"!! I too loved Glenn!
Take care Mary. Love and tears from Chuck & Joyce
