John Patrick Glynn
NATICK: John Patrick Glynn, Sr. 78, died peacefully surrounded by his family on November 20, 2017 at the Metrowest Medical Center in Framingham after a valiant battle with lung cancer.
John was born in Cambridge, Massachusetts on June 7, 1939 – the son of Patrick and Mary Glynn of Cambridge, MA.
John is the husband of the late Janet F. Glynn (Archer). He was the father of John P. Glynn Jr. and his wife Jennifer of Milford, Joan C. Groleau and her husband Laurence of Framingham, William A. Glynn of Natick, Mark E. Glynn of Natick, and Janet F. Medeiros and her husband Paul of Natick. Also survived by nine grandchildren: Matthew, Alex, Paul, Cassandra, Samantha, Amanda, Jillian, Julia, and John, and two great-grandchildren: Braeden and Layla.
John lived in Natick for over 32 years and spent his formative years in East Cambridge and Wayland. He graduated from Sacred Heart School in 1957. John was a career sales manager in the carpet and flooring business for over 50 years. John never retired - he managed two part time jobs to fund his passions - his golf game, lunch and dinners with his children and grandchildren, and his Chevy Camaro. When he wasn’t with his family, John drove special needs children and adults for JFK Transportation who were his pride and joy – often rushing his chemo treatments to ensure he was out on time to pick them up at their programs. In addition, he was a member at Wayland Country Club where he played every Sunday with his son and daughter and often with his family including his sons, daughter, grandson and granddaughter. John was also a starter at Wayland Country Club.
His family will celebrate his life at a memorial gathering at the Glynn family residence at 35 Porter Road, Natick on Sunday, December 3, 2017 from 2:00 to 5:00 pm.
In lieu of flowers, his family kindly asks that memorial gifts in John’s memory be sent to a charity of your choice.
