Celebrating the Life of Glen Hentges, O’Dowd Former Board Chair

With heavy heart we share that our former Board Chair and long-time O’Dowd advocate, father of Alex ’11 and Tyler ’15, Glen Hentges, passed peacefully at home in late January. Glen’s sharp mind, dedication, generosity, and kind heart infused his service to O’Dowd.

Glen’s board service from 2011 to 2017 was characterized by superb volunteerism and wise counsel. After his board tenure, Glen and his wife Mary generously supported the Cor Unum Campaign and Glen served on its Finance Cabinet. Glen and his wife Mary also chaired the Transforming Lives Dinner in 2018 and the Hentges have been exceptionally generous in supporting tuition assistance through the years. Bishop O’Dowd High School has established an endowed fund to support tuition assistance in Glen’s memory.

Glen was a thoughtful man who loved his family, his parish, and his community. The O’Dowd community lifts our prayers for the restful repose of Glen’s soul in heaven, sending love and support to Mary, Alex, Tyler, and all who loved and cherished Glen.
