Richard G. “Glenn” Hamrick, 84, of Franklin, passed at 6:04 a.m. on Friday, Sept. 6, 2019, at The Caring Place.

Born in Clay County, West Virginia, on Aug. 28, 1935, he was the son of the late Richard and Nina Moore Hamrick.

Glenn honorably served his country in the United States Navy. After his time in the Navy, he went on to work for Oil Well Supply in Oil City, and then finished out his career working in the maintenance department for the Titusville Area School District. Glenn enjoyed working with his hands, especially in woodworking. He loved to sit on the porch swing that he made and people-watch. Glenn was a quiet man, but had a very good sense of humor. He deeply cared for and loved his family; he was a faithful and wonderful man who was a very hard worker and would never complain.

Glenn attended the Franklin Church of the Nazarene.

On June 2, 1952, he married Michelle “Micki” Hamrick, and she preceded him in death. Then, on June 6, 1997, he married Kathy Reynolds Hamrick, who survives at home.
