Glen Thomas Rey, 68, passed away peacefully in his Sarasota home on Sunday morning, surrounded by family and friends. For the last 3 years he battled pancreatic cancer with great fortitude and strength.
Glen, born in Chicago, Illinois, to Joseph and Millie Rey, attended Catholic grammar and high school in Chicago and graduated from the University of Notre Dame and then earned M.S. from University of Illinois. His time at Notre Dame had a tremendously positive influence on his life; professionally, spiritually, and socially. It was his love of the memories, friendships and opportunities granted to him through Notre Dame that inspired his three children to attend the University.
Glen married his wife, Kathy in 1967 and the couple had three children: Carolyn, Christopher and Rebecca. Glen worked for Northern Trust Bank for almost 43 years. He was active in many community organizations including the Boys and Girls Clubs of Sarasota County, St. Martha's Catholic School, Cardinal Mooney High School, St. Thomas More Catholic Church, St. Jude Catholic Church and Hispanic Center, and the Notre Dame Club of Sarasota. As a banker with Northern Trust, a community volunteer, and a dearly loved friend, husband, father, uncle and grandfather he will be fondly remembered for not only his financial expertise but his good sense of humor and positive outlook.
Glen is survived by his wife, Kathleen; son Christopher (Carolyn) Rey and 2 daughters, Carolyn (Thomas) Brennan and Rebecca (John) English; 2 sisters Melanie (Gary) Bodane and Nancy (Doug) Tomb; 5 grandchildren, Eleanor and Paulina Rey and Ciaran, Darcy & Thomas Brennan; 2 nieces Bridget (Bodane) Michaelson and Lauren (Tomb) Markowitz and nephew Michael Tomb.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated for Glen at St. Thomas More Church in Sarasota on Monday, February 18 at 9:30 a.m. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Glen's memory to the Boys and Girls Clubs of Sarasota County, P.O.
