In the early morning hours of Saturday, Sept. 5, 2015, Harry Glen England, 80, peacefully passed from this world after an extended illness. °
Born Dec. 13, 1934, Glen, a lifelong resident of Newcomerstown, was the son of Harry B. England and Lunda G. Gainer. °
He was a lifelong lover of motorcycles. Later in life, he developed a passion for piloting his own airplanes. Glen was a jack-of-all-trades and could accomplish anything he set his mind to; a mind, as we all know, that once made up was not easily changed. Glen was a veteran of the Army, having been stationed in Germany. In addition to his service, he worked many years for the Tuscarawas County Road and Bridge Department, cut timber, was a heavy equipment operator, dug water wells, was a semi-truck owner/operator, and ran his company, C. & E. Services.
Glen was preceded in death by his parents.
He leaves behind his wife of 40 years, Bertha Welch Donato England; step-children, Toni (Tim) Minor of Mogadore and Chuck (Char) Donato of Westerville. He also is survived by his children, Harry (Pam) England of Newcomerstown, Deberah England of Dayton, Berneda Gibb of New Philadelphia; and his sister, Edna Cramlet of Fort Myers, Fla. Glen also was blessed with six grandchildren, seven great-grandchildren, three step-grandchildren and six step-great-grandchildren. Additional survivors are sister-in-law, Mary Welch and brother-in-law, Bill Welch, both of Newcomerstown.
Services were Friday, Sept. 11, 2015, at Addy Funeral Home in Newcomerstown.
Burial will be at Kings United Methodist Cemetery where the Newcomerstown Veterans Honor Guard conducted military services.
The Addy Funeral Home in Newcomerstown was in charge of arrangements.
