Glenn Michael Jones, 56, of Wilkes-Barre, passed away unexpectedly at his home on Sunday, March 14, 2021.
Born in Kingston on March 4, 1965, he was the youngest son of the late Philip S. and Eileen (Timmins) Jones. Glenn graduated from West Side Vocational Technical School in 1983 and was a long-time active member of the Back Mountain Jaycees.
Glenn worked as a Business Process Manager for Mondelez International, Hanover Twp. for 20+ years. In earlier years, Glenn was an assistant executive chef at Fox Hill Country Club, Exeter, and an Account Specialist at Karol Media Group, Wilkes Barre.
He was a member of the former St. Boniface Church, Wilkes-Barre. He was also a member of various social clubs in the Wyoming Valley. Glenn loved all aspects of life, including being active in the community, cooking, and especially loved spending time with his family and friends. He was kindhearted and lived his life to the fullest; he always was willing to help a friend in need. He will be sadly missed by all who knew him.
Left to cherish his memory are his loving companion of 30 years, Deborah Volpe; beloved son, Tyler; sister, Elaine Jones; brothers, Philip Jones and wife, Ronnie, William Jones and Robert Jones; and nieces, Kelsey and Zoe.
