Glenn Amos Obituary, Notice and Service Information (2022)
- by Alex Danvers
On November 6, Glenn Amos, 70, passed away with his wife by his side. Glenn had one older sister, Kathleen, who he adored, and was born to William and Helen Amos in Washington, DC. Glenn was up in Temple Hills, Maryland, where he made friends for life and attended Crossland High School, where he received his diploma in 1970.
Glenn worked as an auto mechanic for a number of years until his father convinced him to go back to school for computer programming. With computer skills under his belt, he worked for the U.S. Treasury, Blue Cross Blue Shield and later MCI where he made many new friends and met his wife Alice. Glenn moved with his wife and youngest daughter to Colorado Springs in 1993 where he enjoyed summer road trips to national parks in Colorado, Wyoming, Utah, and Nevada. In 1998 they returned to the East Coast to be closer to family and ultimately settled in Ashburn, VA where he lived for the last 23 years.
One of Glenn’s favorite pastimes was salvaging and repairing bicycles, small engines, and furniture. He was interested in sports cars, motorcycles, music, and the stock market. He was known for his mastery of the grill, for always knowing how to fix something, and for his infamous pecan pie.
Glenn had a love of “Yard-Sale-ing” and bargain hunting. He always enjoyed helping his friends and loved ones search for things they were looking for; whether that was a piece of furniture, a tool, or a lawn mower. He had a knack for knowing what was worth saving and what still had life in it. Glenn loved to travel and took many cruises with his wife, family, and closest friends. He spent his retirement years traveling with his wife and friends and enjoying his family.
Glenn is survived by his wife Alice of 31 years, his daughters Rachael Johnson and Helen Moniz, sons-in-law Mike and Tony, and grandchildren Loralei, Michael, and Kathleen. He will be cremated in accordance with his wishes and there will be a celebration of his life in the coming weeks.
In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests donations be made in his memory to the March of Dimes (www.marchofdimes.org/donate) or St Jude Children’s Research Hospital (www.stjude.org/donate/donate-to-st-jude]www.stjude.org/donate/donate-to-st-jude).
