Glenn H. Steinbrecher, age 90, passed away peacefully in his home surrounded by family on Tuesday,May 17, 2022. He was born in Green Bay on September 28, 1931, to the late Sylvester and Mabel (VandeLeest) Steinbrecher. He was united in marriage to Jean Schnell on September 5, 1953, in Green Bay. 

In addition to helping raise 6 children, Glenn’s working life was mostly in the insurance and financialplanning businesses, first with Prudential and then starting his own company in 1982, Oshkosh Insurance Services.
