Cornelius (Con) Glennen (SPC 1944-45, PY1947)

June 14, 2022

We extend our deepest sympathy to the extended family of Old Collegian Cornelius (Con) Glennen (SPC 1944-45, PY1947) who passed away suddenly and peacefully on 21 May, 2022, aged 92 years.

Con was very well known to the locals, operating a very successful dairy farm in Dalvui Lane, Noorat with his brother Jack (SPC 1948-50. PY1951), who is aged 88 years. Con is one of 15 children and lived his whole life on the farm, apart from his time as a boarder at SPC.
He was a much-loved son, brother, uncle and great uncle.
His niece Maria Bohan said Con lived for his farm and the footy. He never married and was a “strong, fit man with a great sense of humour and a wonderful storyteller”.
During his time at SPC, Con was a member of the Junior Shed Competition football premiership team in 1944-45. He was also a handy runner, coming third in the 800 yards in the open handicap as well as a member of the McCarthy House championship athletic team in the 1944 SPC Sports.
