Glen Witter Obituary

Glen Michael Witter, 69, of Wausau, Wisconsin, passed away on March 20, 2024 of leukemia. 

Glen was born on February 21, 1955 in Wausau to LaVern and Rose Mae (Curler) Witter. He and his twin sister Jacquelyne were their parents’ first children, and were followed by brothers Mark and Michael. 

Glen attended Wausau West High School and went on to study business at UW Eau Claire. He later completed a business program at Harvard University. The early death of his father in 1976 stimulated a lifelong drive to work hard to ensure his mother and siblings were cared for. He credited his father as his biggest inspiration and strove to make him proud. 

His lifelong passion for aviation was also inspired by his father. Glen was an admirer of many aircraft, but was especially proud of his Stearman biplane, an open-cockpit WWII training airplane. He had many other hobbies including golf, writing, entrepreneurship, classic cars, and photography.

Glen’s real estate agency, Security Realty, sold over a billion dollars of real estate in over forty years of business. He was a consummate entrepreneur who was always searching for a new business venture. He had a curious mind and a love of learning. He was renowned for his incredible memory and encyclopedic knowledge of many topics.

As a father, his main priority was instilling a drive for success in his children. He believed they could accomplish anything if they set their minds to it. He would frequently tell people how proud he was of them. 

Despite life’s challenges, he was an optimist who frequently referred to himself as “the luckiest man in the universe” and often said “every day is a holiday.”

Glen is survived by his loving partner of over ten years, Heidi Priddy, his five children, Natalie (Geert), Alexander (May), Samantha (Tyler), Vanessa, and Alanna (John), his grandchildren Cameron and a baby-to-be, and his brothers, Mark (Cathy) and Michael.

Special thank you to all who cared for him at Marshfield Clinic, especially his oncologist Dr. Fagbemi.
