Glenn H. MacNeill

October 4, 1936 — November 23, 2022

Glenn H MacNeill, 86 years young, beloved husband, father, grandfather, and brother passed away at home surrounded by his family on November 23. Glenn was born in Lincoln to Raymond and Irene (Sautter) MacNeill on October 4 1936. He lived in Lincoln his entire life with the exception of his time in the military. Glenn worked with his father since he was 8 years old at Ray’s Garage as a junior mechanic. Glenn graduated from Oscoda High School in 1955 and then joined the U.S. Army, who utilized his talents with auto mechanics by putting him in charge of the motor pool. After his military service, Glenn returned to Lincoln and married the love of his life, Janice (Jamieson) MacNeill. They had known each other since grade school. When Janice noticed Glenn on the playground those many years ago, she told her friends that she planned on marrying him someday. Her wish came true; they married on March 5, 1960, and have two sons, Warren and Roger. Glenn worked for Alcona Motors in Lincoln as a mechanic for 20 years before he and Janice started their own business, Service Center in Lincoln. Glenn and Janice worked side by side until retiring in 1996 after dedicating 20 years to their business. Glenn was active as a volunteer fireman for the Lincoln Fire Dept, and for the Department of Natural Resources for 50 years each. After retirement, Glenn spent many happy years at their hunting camp, bagging many trophy bucks and playing with his John Deere equipment. Glenn was well known in the community for his excellent dancing skills, his collection of suspenders, and his huge assortment of hats. Glenn will be remembered for his kindness. Glenn is survived by his wife of 62 + years, Janice; his sons Warren (Judy) MacNeill, and Roger MacNeill (Ophelia McKinney), his grandchildren Megan (Thomas) MacNeill-Yeoman, Scott MacNeill, Erryn (Nathan) Moore, Tyler Jenks, and Kash MacNeill; his great-grandchildren Kayleigh and Adelynn Moore; his siblings Terry (Mary) MacNeill, Sherry (Deb Throop) MacNeill, Ted (Ruth) MacNeill, Tim (Marlena) MacNeill, Mark (Patty) MacNeill, his sister-in-law, Joyce Jamieson, and many nieces, nephews and great friends. Glenn was preceded in death by his parents, and his older brother Duane MacNeill, his sister-in-law Carol MacNeill, and two brothers-in-law, Roger and Duane Jamieson.
