Glendon W. Markle

Middletown, Ohio






Glendon and his wife, Nina, live in Middletown, Ohio.  He has a son, a daughter, a step-son, and five grandchildren. He was an instrumental music teacher in public schools, and Nina taught vocal music in public schools. They are both retired. Glendon’s hobbies are woodworking, crafts, instrumental music performance, singing in the church choir,  travel, and camping. He’s tied the knot twice. The first time to his high school sweetheart (19 years), and the second time to Nina, a fellow teacher (currently 26 years).


He rates the education he got at EHS to be about the same as today’s public high schools. Glendon’s favorite teacher at EHS was Jack Schuler. His pick for most effective teacher at EHS? “No question – Mary Menges.”


Glendon and Nina have traveled and camped extensively in the USA including driving the Alcan Highway and camping for two months in Alaska.  They have also traveled to Canada, Asia, and the Caribbean.


He is most proud of, “College degrees in music, being principal clarinetist in symphony orchestras and symphonic bands, but most of all … proud of my children and my family.”


His message to his classmates: “often think of you, Hanover and EHS (I’ve been gone since 1957), but I am not much good at returning for reunions (although I am considering 2004). Thanks for the memories. If you are into E-mail, please drop me a line” (Glendon’s email address is
