Paul Eugene McGlennen of Silver Lake passed away at his home surrounded by family at 4:21 p.m. Sunday, April 21, 2019, at the age of 70.

He was born on May 14, 1948, in Kalamazoo, Mich., to Virginia Laughlin McGlennen and Raymond McGlennen. He was married on Nov. 24, 1973, to Marsha Truex. They had three sons before they divorced.

Paul enlisted in the U.S. Army on April 15, 1968, and was a Vietnam veteran. He proudly served until his honorable discharge on May 31, 1970.  

He worked construction for 25 years for Dave Poor and Bill Batalis, worked for G.I. Polishing in Warsaw, and retired from Zimmer Inc. of Warsaw after 20 years as a polisher.  

Paul was never afraid of a hard day’s work because it meant he was taking care of his family. He will be dearly missed by his children and grandchildren.

He will be lovingly remembered by his three sons: Jason (Angel) McGlennen, Silver Lake; Brandon (Wanda) McGlennen, San Francisco, Calif.; and Morgan (Michelle) McGlennen, Silver Lake. Also surviving are nine grandchildren: Lucas and Emily Gilbertson and Makayla McGlennen, all of Silver Lake; Kathan and Callen McGlennen, San Francisco; and Konnor, Kierstin, Kiera and Kailyn McGlennen, all of Silver Lake; two great-grandchildren,  Kaisen and Kailani Gilbertson; and two brothers, Mike McGlennen, Palestine, and Terry McGlennen, North Carolina.  

He was preceded in death by his parents and an infant brother.

A memorial service will be held by his family at a later date.  

Arrangements were entrusted to Redpath-Fruth Funeral Home, Warsaw.
