Obituary for Richard M. Glantz

Richard Maynard Glantz, 80, passed away peacefully on June 9th, 2020. He leaves behind his beloved daughter Jennifer Kelley, her wife Kathryn, and granddaughters Olivia Kelley and Marguerite Stanek.

Richard was born and raised in River Forest, IL, and attended Oak Park River Forest High School. He earned his bachelor’s degree from Bucknell University, PA. He had a successful career in civil engineering, particularly wastewater treatment.

Richard led an active and adventurous life. He enjoyed tennis, kayaking, white water rafting, and was always looking to try something new. He also loved to watch professional hockey, football, and baseball, and enthusiastically cheered on the Chicago Blackhawks, Bears, and Cubs. He had a lifelong interest in sports cars and liked nothing better than to be on the road searching for his next adventure.

Richard never met a stranger, and would happily talk for hours about sports, cars, nature, politics, gardening, exotic pets, music, or any other topic. He was always outgoing and hated to be bored. He prided himself on keeping an open mind and accepting diverse points of view. He gave generously of himself and his talents, and his passing leaves a space in the hearts of his family and many friends.

Services and interment are private.
