Glenn visited Maine in 1969, where he met Tina (Smart) Jakacky. Glenn and Tina married, and lived briefly in Massachusetts before making Maine their home. Throughout the years they shared their passion for music, performing in multiple bands together. Glenn was known as one of the best bass players around. He was a traveling soul, and the family called many different cities and towns their home. He spent his lifetime working hard, and was also a well renowned RV technician. In his spare time, Glenn loved restoring old cars and jeeps - and his father-in-law's beloved antique tractor, performing music, playing with his dogs, watching the birds, tending to his "enchanted forest," and exploring the coast with Tina.
Glenn is survived by his wife, Tina; and their daughters, Crista Jakacky and husband, Troy, and Sharla Moretti and husband, Gary; grandchildren, Logan Norton, Dawson Emerson, Avery and Colby Hamor, and Kayli Varnum; siblings, Laura Garrity and husband, Bob, Bill Jakacky and wife, Christine, and Mary Larkin and husband, John; mother-in-law, Georgia Smart; and many nieces, nephews, in-laws and extended family. He was predeceased by his parents; brother, Wayne Jakacky; and father-in-law, Edward Smart.
A celebration of life will be held 2 p.m. Saturday, July 20, downstairs in the schoolhouse building at Pathway Wesleyan Church, 185 Harlow St., Bangor, www.pathwaywesleyan.com.
