Glenn Edward Kleinhenn, 90, of Monroe, Ohio passed away to be with our Lord, on Sunday, January 3rd, 2021. Glenn had lived with his Father in Lebanon for many years until he met his wife Jeanie 30 years ago. Together they lived in Franklin and at Springboro Commons Retirement until they moved to The Woodlands Assisted Living in Middletown where they resided for over four years, prior to them moving to Mount Pleasant Nursing Home in Monroe one year ago. Always seen together, Glenn and Jeanie were seldom apart.

Glenn was born on September 11th, 1930 in Springboro, Ohio. He was the son of William Ernest Kleinhenn and Hanna Marie Kleinhenn (Ertel). He grew up on the family farm in Warren County and he dearly loved farm life and spoke of it often. He was especially fond of John Deere Tractors and his favorite pastime was watching NASCAR races. He was employed by Bill Carson Buick for 20 years and Lebanon Chrysler for 20 years as a car detailer and lot man where he was known as a most loyal employee and hard worker. He spoke often of his opportunity to drive Neil Armstrong home several times. After his retirement, from the dealerships, he worked for the Franklin-Springboro Libraries for four years. Glenn was known for his friendliness, his willingness to help others in need, his witty humor and his wonderful smile. Glenn was a member of Holy Family Parish and could always be seen with Jeanie in the front pew on Sunday mornings.

Glenn was preceded in death by his parents, William and Hannah Kleinhenn, a brother, William "Alvin" Kleinhenn, his sister Dorothy Marie Salamon, and his beloved twin sister, Glenna May Smithhisler, several Aunts and Uncles and a very special cousin, Eldon Kleinhenn.

He is survived by his wife of 29 years, Billie "Jeanie" Fullen Snider Kleinhenn of Monroe, Ohio who he cherished; two step sons, Stephen (Pam) Snider of Cincinnati, Ohio; Timothy (Angie) Snider of Franklin, Ohio; and a step daughter, Kathy Wright of Middletown, Ohio, cousins Marcia Sheppard, Gail McMonigle, and many great grandchildren, nieces, nephews, cousins and dear friends.

The family would like to thank everyone at Mount Pleasant and Atrium Medical Center who gave Glenn the best of care and comfort in his final days.

On Friday January 8, 2021, at Breitenbach Anderson, Middletown, Ohio at 517 S. Sutphin Street, there will be a visitation at 1 PM for family and friends while allowing for safe and social distancing, with services at 2 PM with Father John Civille officiating.

It is with heartfelt sadness, I send my condolences to the Kleinhenn family. I only met Great Uncle Glenn once, given that I left home for Texas 25 years ago and only came home for rare visits. However, my Great Aunt Jean is so very dear to me. I know Uncle Glenn made her life so rich, full of love, which they both truly deserve. I thank God for their wonderful marriage, and for God’s mercy and grace for the long, full life He granted Uncle Glenn. May God bring Aunt Jean peace and comfort as she mourns the loss of her loving husband. Please forgive me for not being able to travel to be with you all. I’m sending you all hugs and prayers for comfort and peace. Aunt Jean, if you see this, I love you with all of my heart. My husband, children, and I are praying for you and your family. I miss you.

Uncle Glenn was a wonderful man with a caring heart for his family and work. His joy was seen by his love for the land on his John Deer tractor, tending of the family garden in Lebanon. Also his classic Buick he adored. Most of all his love for Aunt Jeanie.
