Obituary of Glenn F. Black

Glenn F. Black, 83, of Fort Covington, N.Y., passed away on April 4, 2022 at The Alice Center in Malone, N.Y. Born October 25, 1938, he was the son of the late Aloney and Madeline Brown Black. On August 24th, 1985, he was wed to the former Susan Leroux Tenace at his home in Fort Covington. On their first anniversary, their union was blessed by Fr. Gerry Bleaux of Our Lady of Fatima in Westville. She survives. Glenn worked on numerous farms while in his teens, on construction of the General Motors Plant in Massena and, when construction ended, was employed at the plant. He started out as a garage attendant retiring thirty-three years later as the head mechanic. He was a worker, always coming up with a new job needing completion. After retirement, he built several houses, garages, etc. for family members and completely renovated his fallen down camp at Lake Titus. He was always the first to volunteer to help those in need, but also enjoyed his free time. He loved hunting at the family camp in Tupper Lake, snowmobiling, camping, boating, NASCAR, and hockey. He was always up for “a meeting of the minds.” He especially enjoyed zipping anyone who was willing on the various tubes behind his boats. He and his wife traveled to many U.S. States including Alaska and Hawaii, Ireland, many other European countries, Mexico and the Caribbean. Glenn was a devoted husband, father, son, brother, uncle and a good friend to many. He had a beautiful smile and a twinkle in his eyes. Survivors besides his wife include his children; Donald Black, Darin (Corinna) Black, Kimberly (Ed) Russell, and his stepchildren; Shayne (Patricia) Tenace, Gino (Kelly) Tenace, and Shilo (Jami) Leduc. He is also survived by his siblings; Sr. Mary Maurice Black, SSJ, Joyce Black, Bruce Black and Stanley (Patricia) Black, as well as many grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces and nephews. Along with his parents, he was predeceased by his daughter Rhonda Dunaway, his brothers Lawrence, Donald, Gerald, Robert and Brian Black, and his sisters Ruth, Helen, Theresa Black and his first wife June Woods.
