Glenn J. Riegsecker

December 06, 1932 - September 30, 2018

Glenn J. Riegsecker, 85, Middlebury, died at 9:06 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 30, at Elkhart General Hospital after a five-year battle with cancer.
He was born Dec. 6, 1932, in Middlebury, to Joseph and Katie (Kauffman) Riegsecker.
On April 30, 1955, in White Pigeon, Michigan, he married Esther Graber, who survives.
In addition to his wife, surviving are his daughter, Sheryl (Charles) Horst, Middlebury; two sons, Randall (Sharon) Riegsecker and Robert (Lilly) Riegsecker, both of Middlebury; daughter-in-law, Kathy (Dave) Peachey, Middlebury; 18 grandchildren; 32 great-grandchildren; three sisters, Mary Riegsecker, Middlebury, Gladys Miller, Shipshewana, and Lucy Bontrager, Goshen.
He was preceded in death by his parents; two sons, Rodney and Ronald Riegsecker; two great-grandchildren, Jordan and Bridget Miller; two brothers, Harold and Vernon Riegsecker; and sister, Ella Troyer.
Glenn's faith and relationship with God was very important to him. He was a farmer and drove school bus for many years for the Middlebury school system. He had also worked as a truck driver and in different area RV factories.
He was a member of the Roselawn Conservative Mennonite Church, Middlebury, and wintered for 22 years with his wife in Sarasota, Florida.
He enjoyed woodworking and fishing. One of his favorite hobbies was to visit garage sales; many times he would end up fixing his newfound items and re-selling them. His favorite items include watches that he would fix and donate to mission projects. He was very talented with his hands and often fixed items for his family as well.
Visitation will be from 2-8 p.m. Tuesday Oct. 2, at Griner Mennonite Church, Middlebury. There also will be one hour of visitation prior to the 10 a.m. funeral service Wednesday, Oct. 3, also at the church. Services will be conducted by the Roselawn Ministry Team and his sons.
Burial will be at Miller Cemetery, Goshen.
Memorials may be given to Crusades for Christ African Missions.
