Obituary for Dorman A. Glenn

December 1, 2019
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania


Dorman A. Glenn, born in Lynn, Arkansas and residing in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania for the past 65 years, entered into eternal rest on the Lord's Day, December 1, 2019, at the age of 90 years. Dorman is survived by his loving, caring wife, Fran (nee Sommer) of 17 memorable years. Dorman is also survived by his devoted children- Carolyn June Glenn Agrusa and John Joseph Glenn (Susan). Dorman leaves behind a legacy in his two beloved grandchildren, Michael Glenn Agrusa, Regina Rose Agrusa, and a great-grandson Caden Lee Agrusa. Dorman is predeceased by his cherished parents, Mildred and Floyd, and his dearly loved brother, Price Glenn.

Dorman was an honorable and proud Veteran of the Korean War. While deployed, Dorman served as Chaplain and Medic assigned to the United States Marine Corp division. Dorman held the deepest respect for all Veterans and believed blessed to stand beside them. Upon his return stateside, Dorman moved to Philadelphia where his first job was selling imported cars at Wilkie-Buick. His career took him to only three dealerships and Sloane was his longest time where he created many joyful memories and gained his legacy as an honest and true man of his word that his lived throughout his days. His deep faith in God guided him through the many seasons of his life.

Dorman was happiest everywhere, but especially when amongst family, friends, neighbors, and his Arkansas home visits. Dorman will be remembered for his generosity of heart, selfless ability to rise others up, sense of humor, positive attitude, and passion for the very simplest gift in life (and his insatiable love of sweets). He loved all music, but especially Hillbilly from his roots, and also very much enjoyed the art and science of photography.

Dorman was a master storyteller and life lesson giver. He enjoyed every aspect of life excepts the difficulties of the less fortunate where he always stood helpful to those in need. He never wanted much, he just wanted enough.

His wants were minimal, but his passions were great for all people, nature, and knowledge gaining. He never met someone who did not give him some life lesson He learned something every day because he opened his eyes and the door to the world before him and he listened. Everyone was important to him. For those miserable…pray for them. For those kind…celebrate them. For those in need…help them. 
His love of ancestry and photo taking gave many lifetime memories.

As of right now funeral services are pending.

In lieu of flowers, Dorman wants to be remembered in the small kindnesses one does each day. Do an extra one or two for him…for the less fortunate, for the Veterans, for those in nursing homes. Spend extra time with your children, your parents, your friends, your families…your favorite charity.

Make each day count, for you have this day and 'you shall not pass this way again'.

Services Pending. Please check back for further information.
