Ed lost his battle to cancer on Saturday, November 11, 2017 surrounded by his family at the age of 65. He was born on October 11, 1952 to Allegra (Schmitt) and Llewellyn Glimme in Dane, WI. Ed was a longtime state employee, working and finally retiring from Mendota Mental Health after 40 years of service. In 1997 Ed met his true love, his wife Geri. Together they made beautiful memories and watched their grandchildren grow. One of Ed’s favorite pastimes was attending his many rendezvous with his Jerksville family. To them he was known as Wounded Owl. When not rendezvousing, he was an avid Packer and Badger fan…a true Wisconsinite.
Ed is survived by his wife, Geri; children, Ed (Caitlin) Glimme, April (Andy) Glimme, Matt Glimme, Kevin (Jennifer) Harrington, Keri (Matt) Haddock and Kelli Harrington; grandchildren, Airelle, Emma, Adreanna, Chace, Kami, Kaleese, Jocelyn, Keith and Jayden; great-grandson, Kingston; and sister, Mary Glimme.
He was preceded in death by his parents, his brothers, Joe and Danny as well as an infant granddaughter, Caytlynn.
A funeral service will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, November 18, 2017 at RYAN FUNERAL HOME, 2418 N. Sherman Avenue. Visitation will be held from 11:00 a.m. until the time of service on Saturday at the funeral home. A celebration of life will follow at the VFW Post #9362, Sun Prairie.
Ed’s family would like to give special thanks to Agrace HospiceCare, especially his primary RN, Rebecca Johnson. Our Wounded Owl is now at peace after spreading his wings.
