Glen Wyn Lauher, 89, passed away Tuesday evening (Jan. 10, 2012) in Muskegon, Mich.
He was born June 25, 1922, to Frederick E. and Fannie Elizabeth Handy Lauher in McLean County. Glen graduated from Millikin University in 1947 with a bachelor’s degree. He honorably served his country as a chief specialist in the Navy during World War II. He talked fondly of teaching Judo during this time.
In 1987 Glen retired after a long and successful career with General Telephone Company.
He loved spending time with his family, fishing, boating, rooting for the Cubs and later in life poking us all with his cane. He will be greatly missed.
Glen is survived by his wife of 50 years, Rhoda; children, Tom Lauher, Glenda (Joe Herzhaft) LeRoux, Gary Lauher and Gina (Paul) Burnip; grandchildren, Katherine Lauher, Scott Lauher, Carrie (Tom) O’Rear, Emily Lauher, Casey Lauher, Wyatt LeRoux, Jessica West, Lindsey West, Miranda Lauher, Amanda Lauher-Smith and Ryan West; great-granddaughter, Ashley O’Rear; and sister, Mary Whalen.
Glen was preceded in death by his six brothers; three sisters; and son-in-law, Todd LeRoux.
