December 4, 1949 - November 19, 2021
Kenneth "Ken" Elmer Glatz, age 71, passed away peacefully Friday, November 19th at Angela Hospice in Livonia, MI after a brief illness. He was born December 4, 1949 in Saline, MI, the only child of Elmer and Elva Glatz. Ken graduated from Saline High School in 1968, and Ferris State University with a Bachelor of Science in Vocational Education in 1972. He was married on June 17, 1972 to the love-of-his-life, Jody Haus of Hillsdale, MI. A life-long Saline resident, Ken spent 24 years as a Sales Engineer for R & B Machine Tool before moving on to various positions in manufacturing sales, ending his career with Creative Automation in Whitmore Lake. Ken was a member of St. Andrew the Apostle Catholic Church and the Knights of Columbus. Ken was the definition of an extrovert and never met a stranger he didn’t befriend. He loved talking to people and learning about their lives, sharing stories, connecting with old friends, fishing, golfing, old westerns, David Baldacci novels, and traveling. One of his favorite memories was a 4-day cross-country road trip with his oldest daughter when he moved her to Los Angeles for a grad school internship. Ken was thrilled in recent years to reconnect with the SHS class of ‘68 and looked forward to their monthly get-togethers. He loved spending time with family and had many wonderful trips to Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Mackinac Island, and Disney World. His legacy will be carried on in the hearts of everyone he met and touched. He is survived by his children, Kristen Glatz of Saline, Dana (Glatz) and Jason Kohler of Northville, Adam and Stacey (Atkinson) Glatz of Columbus, Ohio; grandchildren Bennett and Chase Kohler, and Madelyn and Henry Glatz; and close friend Augustine (Gustie) Szumko. He was preceded in death by his parents Elva and Elmer Glatz of Saline, mother and father-in-law Joan and Jack Haus of Lancaster, PA, and his beloved wife of 37 years, Jody. Memorial visitation will be held on Monday, November 29, from 9:30 a.m. until the time of the Memorial Mass of the Resurrection at 10:30 a.m. at St. Andrew the Apostle Catholic Church of Saline.
