Glenn M. How­ell of Dal­las passed away peace­fully on Fri­day, Nov. 9, 2018, in Wilkes­Barre Gen­eral Hospi­tal, at the age of 88. Glenn was a de­voted fa­ther, lov­ing hus­band, and proud grand­fa­ther. He was known af­fec­tion­ately by his many grand­chil­dren as “Pa.”

Glenn was born in Cen­ter­more­land, and was the son of the late Fred and Pearl Mon­tross How­ell. In ad­di­tion to his par­ents, he was pre­ceded in death by his first wife, Vir­ginia M. How­ell (for­merly Pi­azza), and his sib­lings Hazel Jacques, Blanche Love and Frank How­ell.

How­ell and wife, Ros­ali Col­lier Sut­tons Bay, Mich.; grand­chil­dren, Melissa How­ell, Julie How­ell, Re­becca Ziemak and hus­band, Michael; Cor­rie How­ell, Ros­alie How­ell, and Everett How­ell, as well as his nu­mer­ous nieces, neph­ews and cousins. He is also sur­vived by his step­daugh­ters, Jane Herman and hus­band, Richard; Julie Yadao and hus­band, Joseph; Joy Sholtis and hus­band, Don­ald; and step-grand­chil­dren, Alexis Vaskas, Hai­ley Sholtis, Richard Herman, David Herman, Ri­ley Jane Herman, An­thony Yadao, Kai Yadao and Sean Yadao.

Glenn grad­u­ated pres­i­dent of his class from Dal­las Twp. High School in June 1948. He at­tended Wilkes Univer­sity and the Whar­ton School.

He joined the United States Army on March 19, 1951. He was as­signed to the 101st Air­borne In­fantry, D Com­pany 502 and served as a courier while sta­tioned in Ja­pan. Glenn was proud to serve his coun­try.

He was a well-known banker in the Wy­oming Val­ley and worked as an of­fi­cer for what is now known as PNC Bank for 44 years. He was also a stew­ard of the Bank Moun­tain com­mu­nity, serv­ing as sec­re­tary trea­surer and su­per­vi­sor of Dal­las Twp. for 51 con­sec­u­tive years. He spent many of these years work­ing closely with his dear­est friend and fel­low Su­per­vi­sor Phillip Wal­ter.

Glenn was a de­pend­able fam­ily man who val­ued hard work at the of­fice and in his yard. He loved Ford cars and trucks and telling sto­ries about grow­ing up on a farm. He also loved his skate­board rid­ing English bull­dog, Irie. Al­ways re­li­able, he served on var­i­ous com­mu­nity boards and com­mit­tees through­out his life. He was a mem­ber of Ge­orge M. Dal­las Lodge 531, F&AM, and a life mem­ber of Irem Shrine.

He will be sadly missed by his en­tire fam­ily and the Back Moun­tain com­mu­nity.
