Glenn Soule

January 6, 1936 ~ December 16, 2020 (age 84)


Glenn Soule, 84, of Williamsport, PA, formerly of Johnsonburg and Mill Hall, PA, passed away on December 16th, 2020, at The Williamsport Home after battling COVID-19.  He was born in Jan. 6, 1936 in Brockway, PA, to Harold N. Soule and Mae Stebbins.  Glenn was the loving husband of Sophia Leone Soule for 46 years and acted as “Dad” to her two sons, Bill and David Geist. Though not their biological father, he treated them as beloved sons. He was also a direct descendant of George Soule, a pilgrim on The Mayflower; thus, Glenn had deep roots and a family who loved him.

He served in the military from 1959-1962 and lived and worked in the Johnsonburg area for most of his early life and marriage.  Later, he and Sophia moved to Pine Glen and then Mill Hall, PA, where he worked for Piper Aircraft and other companies.  In his younger years, Glenn enjoyed riding his motorcycle and piloting small planes; he had a passion for aircraft as well as his model train set.  He loved good food, especially Sophia’s cooking, and was seldom without a cup of coffee in his hand.  After retirement, he and Sophia enjoyed taking long drives to explore.  Other hobbies included playing poker, reading Calvin and Hobbes comics, and loving on his grandkids.  He could never say no to his grandchildren; they will always remember his hearty laugh and how he loved to tell stories. 

He is survived by his son David Geist and wife Clarivel of Keizer, OR; his four granddaughters, Lisa Geist Whitcomb and husband Kevin Whitcomb of Shrewsbury, MA; Susie Geist Krause and husband Matthew Krause of Collegeville, PA; Karen Geist Gehman and husband Dana Gehman, of Collegeville, PA; Ariel Doyle-Geist Hough and husband Dan Hough; and his seven great-grandchildren - Megan and Sarah Whitcomb, Cady Krause, Abby and Jakob Gehman; and Henry and Owen Hough.  He is preceded in death by his wife Sophia, his brother Douglas, and his son William Geist.

He will be forever missed by his family and will be always remembered in our hearts.
