Glenn Huffer, 83, of Vernon CT passed away on June 18, 2019 surrounded by his loving family at
Manchester Memorial Hospital. Born June 17, 1936 in Middletown Md, he was the son of the late Fred
M. and Pearl Main Huffer.

Outgoing and good at explaining how things worked, Glenn began his career as an appliance salesman
at Better Homes in Fredrick Md. In 1967, he was offered a job in Connecticut as a Territory Sales
Manager at Westinghouse and the Frigidaire until his retirement in 1998. Tiring of making blueberry
pies and serving as the self-appointed Neighborhood Watch, he came full circle re-entering the
Appliance Sales Business at Holloways in Simsbury where he worked on Saturdays.
Every Christmas you could count on a box of his delicious peanut brittle and homemade egg nog. A list
of the things Glenn loved would include: movies, peanuts, shrimp, the New York Yankees, George
Dickel, and Bluegrass - not necessarily in that order.
Speaking of Bluegrass - when he relocated to Connecticut, Glenn brought his Dobro and love of
Bluegrass with him. In the 70's he played with "Sounds of Bluegrass" and in 1980 he helped form
"Connecticut Friends of Bluegrass". For 30 plus years he emceed throughout Connecticut and New York.
In his early twenties, Glenn served his country by spending eight years in the Maryland National Guard
discharged with the rank of Staff Sargent.
Glenn is survived by his wife of 36 years, Carol (Bradley) , his daughter Kathie Schultz ( Peter) , his
stepsons David Cubit (Mary) , Darren Cubit (Sharon) and his stepdaughter Caren Fogarasi (Mike). He is
also survived by two Grandchildren, 7 step Grandchildren and five Great Grandchildren, one sister,
Kathleen Wyand (David) and many nieces and nephews. Glenn was predeceased by one brother Elwood
Relatives and friends may join the family on Saturday, June 29, 2019 from 12-2 PM at the Burke-Fortin Funeral Home, 76 Prospect St., Rockville with a memorial service to follow at 2 PM. Burial will be private at the convenience of the family. For online condolences, please visit

My heart is broken 💔 upon hearing about the passing of Glenn Huffer. Glenn was very special to me. He called me one night in 1980 to tell me about the Johnson Mtn. Boys making their first road trip to the Chestnut Lodge in Colchester, CT. He was also a great emcee at all the local festivals. Rest in Peace. Sending deepest sympathy to Carol and the entire family. He did a lot for bluegrass in New England.
