West Newbury, MA - Glenn William Coffin passed away peacefully in his own home on November 15, 2019. Born in Amesbury, on July 28, 1941, to Helen Fellows and William Coffin, Glenn graduated from Amesbury High School in 1959. Glenn spent 30-plus years at Western Electric as a computer programmer. Throughout his life, he had numerous passions, which included firefighting, at which he achieved the rank of Assistant Chief, a 50-year member of freemasonry, and sports of all competitive levels.

Glenn is survived by his wife of 56 years Kathryn Sullivan Coffin; his four daughters, Kerry Carifio (Brian Carifio), Patricia Soucey (Jay Soucey), Susan Richard (Brian Richard), and Kimberly Watson (Jay Watson); as well as his grandchildren, McKenzie Silva (Joshua Silva), Cooper Carifio, Jack Richard, Ty Richard, Ryan Soucey, Kyle Soucey, Dylan Watson, and Katie Watson who referred to him as "G-man," which became as common as his real name with time.

Glenn enjoyed being a spectator at all high school sporting events, especially when his grandchildren were involved. He was a season ticket holder for the Pats for 25-plus years with which he used to enjoy his favorite pastime with his daughters, family members, and close friends.

He will be dearly missed by family, friends, and all who knew him.

Dear Kathy and family, When I worked at "The Western" with Glen I was always impressed with his friendship and professionalism. He could always be counted on to be there for you when you needed help. Since retiring, I lost touch with many of my Western colleagues but I didn't forget them. Glen is one that I missed not keeping in touch with.
