Glenn A. Kanning, 87, went to his eternal home on Saturday, January 9, 2021. Born January 24, 1933 in Fort Wayne, Indiana, Glenn was the son of the late Velma and Herbert Kanning. Many will remember Glenn for his friendly smile, his kind nature, and his willingness to help a friend.
Glenn first met his beloved wife Marcy in elementary school at Emmaus Lutheran School. They attended Concordia Lutheran High School together, and were married in 1954. Glenn and Marcy enjoyed a beautiful marriage bond until just twelve weeks ago, when Marcy passed away peacefully. He was truly a devoted and loving husband.
Glenn earned a Bachelor’s degree in business from Indiana University, and later, a Master’s degree from Ball State University. After serving in the U.S. Army for two years, Glenn began his career as an insurance adjustor with North American Van Lines. He then owned and operated a number of small retail and service businesses. After working several years at Holy Cross Lutheran Church, he finished his career at Thrivent Financial.
He was an active volunteer for many Lutheran organizations. He enjoyed playing golf and pickleball, and watching IU basketball on TV.
Glenn is survived by daughters, Kay Lynn (Joe) Isca of Fort Wayne and Colleen (Rick) Tatman of Tyler, Texas, as well as grandchildren, Joe (Meagan) Isca, James (Jessica) Isca, Jonathan (Nicole) Isca, Rachel Isca, Paige Tatman and Zach Tatman. Also surviving are three great-grandchildren, and brothers Miles Kanning of Willowick, Ohio and Tom Kanning of Fort Wayne. He was preceded in death by wife, Marceil and brother, Neil Kanning.
The family is planning a private ceremony for immediate family only, with burial in Concordia Cemetery Gardens, Fort Wayne. Preferred memorials to Lutheran Life Villages Foundation in memory of Glenn Kanning. Arrangements by Fairhaven Funeral Home. To sign the online guestbook go to

I want to send your family my sincere sympathy at the death of your dad/brother and also your mom/sister-in-law so close together. I rejoice with you that both had a strong faith and are now reunited with our Lord.
My recent memory is before Covid - our Emmaus choir came twice a year to the LLV Chapel to escort residents and sing for the service. Your dad would come into the chapel very early when we were warming up to listen and smile. Then, he went back to get your mom for the actual church service. We always visited afterwards. It was my chance to have a little reunion and see him smile at our hymns and anthems.
They are both now joined again with NO illnesses or memory losses!
Yours in Christ, Barb Kanning

I worked at the front desk at Lutheran Life in Assisted Living. I enjoyed seeing Glenn every morning when he would come up to get his paper and pick up his mail. He would get so excited when he would go back to see his wife in the Health center. I will miss his smiling face and his soft voice.

We so enjoyed Glen and Marcie as friends in our golf league. They were a warm and inviting couple that you could laugh and talk with anytime. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family.
