Glenn Delmar Dienst Jr, 64, of Albuquerque, passed away on October 1, 2017 after his struggle with cancer.

Glenn was born to Glenn and Eunice (Schmoll) Dienst Sr in Gallup, NM.

He was employed at numerous Sewing & Vacuum shops around Albuquerque while attending TVI for Automotive Technology. He worked for Pride/Zangara Dodge and recently Brad Francis Chrysler/Jeep/Dodge. Glenn was an avid car enthusiast with a bias towards Mopar, as well as a walking encyclopedia of vacuum cleaners, sewing machines, appliances, Hollywood, history of Albuquerque, and the list goes on.

He is survived by his Aunt Ann Depoy of Pittsburg, KS; cousins, Roy and Charlene also of KS, Glenn and Melody Depoy of Bartlesville, OK, Jim and Kathi Cook of Prairie Village, KS, and Paul Wineman of Marina Del Ray, CA.
