WINTERPORT – Glenn Alter Bergey, 82, passed away peacefully Sept. 19, 2011, at his home. Glenn was born in Lansdale, Pa., the son of Michael C. and Sarah E. (Alter) Bergey.
Glenn grew up in Lansdale, Pa., where he was a graduate of Lansdale High School. He then attended Penn State, where he received a degree in forestry.
