Obituary

Glenn Hodge, who some knew as PG, passed away peacefully at home on Tuesday, October 18, 2022, after a short illness. At his side was his loving wife and childhood sweetheart, Sandra (Favor). Born in Oberlin, Ohio to Glen and Martha (Huston) Hodge. Glenn will always be remembered for his contagious smile, loving nature, kind heart and love of sports. He attended Oberlin High School graduating in 1965. While attending Ohio State, he played football for Woody Hayes. After graduating from Ohio State with a Bachelor of Science degree, his first job was with the City of Oberlin as the director of recreation. For the next 28 years he was employed by General Motors (GM). He began at GM as an as hourly worker, climbing the ranks to supervisor, assistant/general supervisor, area manager of manufacturing at the Parma, Ohio plant and would fill in as plant manager when needed. As a longtime resident of Oberlin, Glenn was a life member of the United Methodist Church where he served in many positions including lay leader. He loved bible study. His community engagements included serving on Oberlin City Council and participating as a board member of Family Promise of Lorain County. Glenn’s main passion was taking care of family; his other was gardening. Anyone who knew Glenn would often see him planting and meticulously caring for both his and his mother’s yards. Glenn was preceded in death by his father, Glen Hodge, and his sibling, Gail Hodge Littlejohn. He is survived by his wife of 41 years; his mother Martha (Pat) Hodge of Oberlin; son Cory Hodge of Detroit, Michigan; daughter Tonya Howard, of Elyria; four grandchildren; a brother in-law, two nieces, an aunt, an uncle, and a host of cousins. He will be missed by all who knew him, and his memory will forever remain alive in our hearts.
