Glenn Azon

SARATOGA SPRINGS – Glenn Azon, 59, of Porter Corners, passed away on Friday, November 20, 2015 at Saratoga Hospital.

He was born in Woodside, Queens and was the son of the late Jose and Aurora Blandino Azon. Glenn graduated from Music & Art High School in New York City in 1974. 

He was very involved with the music and played a variety of woodwind instruments. Music was a very important part of Glenn’s life. He began playing with a band at age 15 which performed at weddings and parties. Glenn was blessed with perfect pitch and was known to irritate many of his teachers when he had to correct them. Glenn attended John Jay College where he studied criminal justice and became a police officer for the Metro North Police Department. In 1979, he began working at the Long Island Railroad where he attained the rank of Sergeant. In 1986, Glenn entered a vigorous 15 month training program to become a Locomotive Engineer, retiring in 2009.

Glenn is survived by his loving wife of 31 years, Paulette; and his precious daughter Aurora of whom he was so proud. Glenn was loved by many and will always be remembered for his quick wit and New York City sense of humor. Those who knew him will miss his kind smile and warm heart.

Calling hours will be held on Tuesday from 4 - 6:30 pm at Compassionate Funeral Care, 402 Maple Ave., (Rte 9 and/or Marion Ave.) Saratoga Springs, NY 12866.  A service in celebration of Glenn’s life will follow at 6:30 pm.
