He was born in Altoona, the son of the late Daniel and Alma (Poorman) Brandt. On Aug. 5, 1961, he married the love of his life, Shirley McKelvey, of Altoona and they recently celebrated their 58th wedding anniversary.

Surviving are his wife, Shirley; a daughter, Amy ( Phillip) Robertson of Altoona; two sons: Glenn II ( Betty) of Pittsburgh and Gregg Brandt of Greensburg; nine grandchildren: Courtney (Lindsey) Lee-Brandt, Catherine (Corrine) Stevens, Paige (Michael) McCarthy, James, Jenna, Edward, and Ellen Brandt, and Elliott and Noah Robertson; five great-grandchildren: Alex and Chloe McCarthy, Rebel and Gage Stevens, and Jack Lee-Brandt; two sisters: Donna Dodson of Wells Tannery and Ruby of Mount Union: three brothers: Wayne (Marian) and Robert Brandt, all of Sun City, Ariz. and Ronald (Linda) Brandt of Altoona; a sister-in-law, Clare Burk; a brother-in-law, Thomas McKelvey Sr.; and many nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by two brothers: George in Texas and William Brandt of Altoona.

He was a 1960 graduate of Hollidaysburg High School. He served in the U.S. Army Reserves for six years. Glenn was employed by Small Tube Products for many years and later retired from the Hollidaysburg Veterans Home.

He was an avid outdoorsman who never missed deer season and enjoyed fishing the local rivers and streams and enjoyed sharing this love with his children and grandchildren. He was a Penn State and Pittsburgh Steelers football fan.

During his retirement, Glenn was very active with his loving family and will be truly missed by all who knew and loved him.

I have many childhood memories of Uncle Glenn, Aunt Shirley and the family. One that stands out in my memory is the time we took a bus trip to Pittsburgh to hear Greg and his Son sing in a performance. Just being together with the family was a treasure. I also remember Glenn's faith, the smile he always had and his great sense of humor. He was such a kind, gentle man. Our Mother Donna has special memories of her brother Glenn and is so sad over his passing. My husband (Joe) and myself will make a contribution to the Shriners Hospitals for Children in honor of Uncle Glenn.

Love and Blessings,

Donna Dodson and Cheryl and Joe Wible

I have such fond memories of visiting Uncle Glenn and Aunt Shirley when I was young. I especially remember Glenn's affiliation with the Jaffa Shriners and my family has made a donation in his memory to the Shriners Hospitals for Children. An excellent cause in honor of an excellent man.

Love, Douglas, Sandra, Ian, and Zachary Dodson.
