Glen F. Wireman

July 9, 1928 — June 21, 2006

Glen F. “Whitey” Wireman of 3546 Warren-Sharon Rd., Vienna, Ohio, died peacefully at home Wednesday (6-21-2006) surrounded by his family. He was 77.

Mr. Wireman was born at home in Brookfield, Ohio on July 9, 1928, a son of Taylor and Elsie (Dahringer) Wireman.

Glen was a 1946 graduate of Brookfield High School where he was involved in the band and a member of the football team. During those years, he worked at Yankee Lake Ballroom where many Big Bands performed. Many times these bands would invite him to sit in with his coronet. Jack Teagarden and his Orchestra even invited Glen to travel on the road with them.

Soon after graduation, he began his career at Packard. He was promoted to foreman in his mid-twenties, shortly thereafter to general foreman, and retired in 1986.

Glen joined the Masonic Lodge in 1952. He was a past Master of Carol F. Clapp Lodge #655 F. & A.M. of Warren, Ohio and a York Rite Mason. In addition, he was a charter member and first Master of Copper Penny Lodge #778 F. & A.M. of Vienna, Ohio.

Second to his love for his family, was Glen’s passion for serving Vienna Township. In addition to being on the Zoning Commission, he retired in December 2005 after serving 12 years as a township trustee. He was a staunch supporter of the Vienna Neighborhood Watch, the Youngstown Air Reserve Base and various township organizations and events, including heading up the “Vienna Bicentennial” and “Vienna Celebrates Ohio 200”. Furthermore, he was an active member of the Trumbull County Republican Party.

Glen was noted for raising fresh turkey’s, starting in 1975 and was well known for supplying ice to various youth organizations and coffee or Pepsi to any visitors. He was also an avid farmer and enjoyed playing cards.

He will be sadly missed by his family and friends and those at Maxwell House, Pepsi Cola Company, J & R Cigars, and Williams IGA Bakery.
