Franklin John Glunn III

Crawfordville - 1954-2020

John Glunn, of Crawfordville, Florida passed away on June 9, 2020. He died peacefully in his sleep while visiting his mother in Destin.

John was born in Fort Ord, California to Franklin and Helen Glunn. The son of a career Military man and a small town Kentucky lady, he was raised with his three brothers Mark, Randy and Michael; and two sisters Carla and Barbara.

John was your typical Army brat, much traveled and experienced at starting life anew at many different locations around the country and overseas. After graduating from Florida State and getting his Masters from University of Florida, he began his career with the Florida EPA. He met his wife of 27 years, Teresa, while at a campsite out in the woods he loved spending so much time in. Teresa supported John in all his outdoor interests, and truly made their house a home.

John had retired recently and was looking forward to spending more time with Teresa and completing the finishing touches on their second home in Kentucky. He was also set to begin his new fishing career with his brothers and anyone else he could talk into joining him. His fun-loving spirit, terrific sense of humor, and pursuit of all- things outdoors and recreational will be missed by all who knew him. His many friends can attest to his unique setup south of Tallahassee and many a volleyball game was fought to the glorious end there.

Mother Nature lost a true friend and champion when John departed. He lived his life as the most outgoing, caring, considerate husband, brother, son, and loyal friend anyone could have. He truly was one of a kind, and we all can't believe he's gone.

John is survived by his loving wife Teresa; three brothers Mark, Randy (Terri), Michael (Vikki) and two sisters Carla Eatmon and Barbara (Jeff) Knott. He was preceded in death by his father, Franklin John Glunn II.

Teresa, I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I will never forget working with John at DEP. He was definitely one of a kind. I remember when he bought his property in Wakulla....and sometimes going over and feeding his dog while he was out of town. Sending love and prayers to you and the family. John will definitely be missed.

John was a remarkably kind and gentle spirit who enjoyed nothing more than sharing his love of nature and love of good-natured fun with all who knew him. My family and I will never forget the amazing day of food, fellowship and games at Glunnhaven that he and Teresa hosted in celebration of my retirement. I will miss him sorely. Barbara and I are keeping Teresa and all of John's family in our prayers.

So sorry to hear of Johns passing. Although its been over 25 years since Ive seen him, he left an indelible impression on me from the snake camp days in the mid seventies to when we reconnected years later playing volleyball at his place. He will be missed.

Franklin John Glunn and John Franklin Hughes were friends since the day we met. He always had a smile on his face and a kind word for the people he met. I will miss him greatly.

A Prayer for The Soul of John Glunn

Almighty and ever living God, Lord of heaven and earth.
You are an awesome God. It is You Lord who gives, and it is You
Who takes away. All is Yours. Help us to understand such a
Mystery. Teach us Your humility, heal out pride so that Your
voice may penetrate our inner most being. Thereby, able to hear
Your voice in the recesses of our soul.
In John Glunns kindness to us it was You who in Your
Merciful way were expressing Your kindness. In Johns
Smile it was You Lord who genuinely smiled at us. All good
Things done by John were done by You; for You are the
Supreme Good and all goodness flows from You alone.
We thank you, Most Loving Divinity, for having brought
John into our midst. He was a friend as well as colleague.
May Johns beautiful soul rest in Your eternal peace; for You
are our Peace. Amen.
