Galion, Ohio

Glenn B. Sprague, 73, of rural Galion passed away Tuesday, December 18, 2018 at home.

Born December 30, 1944 in Cleveland, he was the son of the late Ray and Agnes (Tough) Sprague. He married his high school sweetheart Linda L. (Swanger) Sprague on August 13, 1966 and they enjoyed 52 years together.

He was a graduate of New London High School in 1962 and received his Bachelors and Master Degrees of Education from Bowling Green State University. Glenn taught Jr. High history in Norwalk, and became Assistant Principal at Norwalk High School, later High School Principal at Monroeville. He moved to the area to become Morrow County’s Assistant Superintendent and retired as Superintendent of Northmor Schools.

Glenn enjoyed traveling especially to Disney World. He owned an antique store and liked to work Thomas’s Auction in Fredericktown on Wednesday nights. He loved his grandchildren who called him “PAPA.”

In addition to his wife, he is survived by children Jason (Rhonda) Sprague of Groveport and Jennifer (Rob) Crase of Canal Winchester; grandchildren Hannah and Silas Crace, and Claire and Jack Sprague.

Following Glenn’s wishes there will be no formal services. The family would like to thank HomeCare Matters Hospice for their loving care of Glenn.

  • While I never had the pleasure to work with Glenn professionally, I truly appreciated his service to the Northmor Local Schools, and I did coach his son, Jason in Football. Like his dad, “Gue” is also a public servant. More recently, Glenn and Linda have been wonderful neighbors to my (own) daughter Jenny. I was shocked to hear of his passing, as it seems like yesterday that we were discussing (my own)retirement in June. Glenn assured me that I “would love it”! I believe (at the time) he said he had been retired 20 years. I hope that my next 20 years will (like Glenn’s) be filled with good times with my grand kids! While grief never comes at a “good time,” by heart goes out to Linda, Jason (#57), Jen, and their extended families. Losing someone, especially the patriarch of the family, during the Holidays is always more difficult. Rest assured you are not grieving alone!

  • It is always difficult to hear of the passing of such a fine man as Glenn. Your relationship was so very special, linda. I cherished our friendship since our college days. His accomplishments in his education career reflect a life of service to his community. My condolences go to you and your family. All my love and good thoughts to you all. Kathy Holmes
