Glenn Schmick

Glenn Edward Schmick of Preston passed away on March 27, 2017. He was 87.

Born August 26, 1929 in Preston, he was the youngest son of Jacob and Amelia's nine children. After High School, Glenn served in the Navy aboard the USS Wasp from 1949-1952. Returning home, he married Thelma (Sue) Dilworth in 1953. Miss Sue preceded him in death in 2011.

Glenn was a gifted athlete who received a tryout as a catcher for the Philadelphia Phillies prior to working for the MD State Highway Administration in Caroline County for 27 years. He was a lifetime member of the Preston Volunteer Fire Department and the Lutheran Church. A warm and gregarious person, most think of Glenn as the nicest man they ever met and the most talented gardener.

He is survived by his four children, Glenda Andrew (Brad) of Trappe, Jay (Lori) of Preston, Kathy Jester (Wayne - deceased) of Preston and Melissa Wade (Lee - deceased) of Annapolis; five grandchildren, five great grandchildren, and his brother Lawrence.
