Glenn Richard Heywood of Seekonk, Mass. passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, August 1, 2020. He was 68.
Glenn was born on April 9, 1952, in Providence, Rhode Island. He was a proud graduate of Providence College and spent his professional career in the telecommunications (Verizon) and security (Siemens) industries before retiring in 2014.
An avid and enthusiastic traveler, Glenn loved experiencing new places as well as revisiting his favorite destinations.

Anyone who met him would agree that he was one of the nicest and kindest human beings in the world. He leaves behind his beloved wife of 46 years, Maryann Heywood of Seekonk, MA; three sons: Kenneth Heywood of Hudson, WI, Glenn II and his wife Rebecca Heywood of Ashland, MA, and Stephen Heywood of Seekonk, MA; seven grandchildren: Amber, Evan, Kenneth Jr. (KJ), Sabrina, Alistair, Edward, and Winston; his sister, Gail Ferrazzano of Warren, RI; and with a host of other family members and friends who loved him dearly.
