Born in: Washington, DC

Glenn William Forester, a cherished husband, father, grandfather, and friend, passed away peacefully at the age of 80 on Sunday, February 18, 2024, at the Alexandria Rehabilitation and Healthcare Center in Alexandria. Born on August 4, 1943, in Washington, D.C., Glenn was the beloved son of Robert and Margaret (Dell) Forester. He was a proud Montgomery Blair High School graduate and served his country with distinction as an MP in the US Army in Germany.

Glenn found love and companionship in Christine Melnick, whom he married on September 18, 1971, in Baltimore, Maryland. His professional life was dedicated to a career in sales, where he was known for his charismatic personality and unwavering integrity.

Glenn’s life was rich with the love of his family. He is survived by his devoted wife, Christine, and their three children: Glenn M. Forester and wife Leslie Arnold of Alexandria, Virginia; Kate Forester of South Riding, Virginia; and Jason Forester and wife Sherry of Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. He was a doting grandfather to William, Colette, Lola, and Conrad, who will miss his warmth and wisdom. Glenn was preceded in death by his parents and brother, Robert (Bob) Forester.
