Howard K. Glossenger (1943-2017)


Howard K. Glossenger of Indianapolis, Indiana, passed away Friday, May 19, peacefully at home after a long, courageous battle with cancer. He was 74 years old. Visitation was Thursday May 25 at Indiana Funeral Care, Harry W. Moore Chapel at 8151 Allisonville Road, Indianapolis from 1 to 3 p.m.  A brief service began at 3 p.m.

Mr. Glossenger was raised in New Buffalo, Michigan. He lived and raised his family in La Porte, Indiana and retired from Bethlehem Steel after 32 years. In 1998 he moved to Indianapolis, Indiana and Howard worked in maintenance at Wishard Hospital and retired after 10 years.

Howard’s proudest achievement was being married to the love of his life Virginia. Their 57th Anniversary would have been June 10. He loved spending time with his family sharing his very special brand of humor. He was an avid Colts fan and spent many hours in his woodshop building furniture.

He was preceded in death by his son, Michael L. Glossenger. The day Howard passed away would have been Mike’s 50th birthday. We know they are together celebrating.

His survivors include, his wife, Virginia (Schroder) Glossenger, Lisa Glossenger Morris (Bill Morris), Daniel Glossenger (Audrey); his grandchildren, Joshua Glossenger, Leanne Glossenger, Jacob Glossenger, Katrin Morris and Kelsey Morris.
