Obituary of Glenn E. Wilson

Glenn E. Wilson, 66, of Endicott, NY fought a valent fight against Glioblastoma (brain tumor). After a 5- year battle, he passed peacefully at home on May 13, 2024 with Kathleen Wold, his life partner by his side. He was celebrating 18 years with a kidney transplant that relieved him of hemodialysis and let him live a very full life. Glenn was the son of Jerome and Joyce Wilson and is survived by his siblings Steve (Beth) Wilson, Shelie (Dennis) VanKuren, Gerard Wilson, along with several nieces. Glenn was a graduate of SUNY Broome, Binghamton University and Syracuse University. As an electrical engineer he worked at numerous companies including Savin, Lockheed Martin, Emerson and was a partner at Southern Tier Technologies before he retired. He loved to tackle engineering problems and was named on 13 patents, the first at age 17. Glenn was a founding member of the Southern Tier Antique Gas and Steam Engines Association, along with his father and still had many small and large antique engines. Glenn's passion later turned to birding, nature and photography. He never left home without his binoculars and camera. He was developing a bird sanctuary on his property by planting dozens of native plants and always had his bird feeders full. He will be sorely missed by many including the Broome County Birding Community. We wish to thank his numerous health care providers at UHS including Dr. Ronald Harris and Dr. Haq for their compassion during his oncology care. In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to Lourdes/Guthrie Hospice or Cornell Lab of Ornithology. The family will receive friends at the Coleman & Daniels Funeral Home, 300 E. Main St. Endicott, on Friday from 4 to 6 p.m. Burial will be in Vestal Hills Memorial Park on Saturday at 10 a.m.
