Ken was born on March 3, 1949 in Newburyport to Sydney and Marion (Kahn) Glansberg. After years working in Emergency Medical services, he transitioned to a career in software technology. He worked for Quadrant Software Company in Professional Services until his retirement and was beloved by his colleagues and friends for his professionalism and great sense of humor. Ken volunteered for 19 years with the Pan-Mass Challenge, an organization that raises money for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. He was incredibly proud to be “Living Proof” after he himself was diagnosed with Cancer in 2012. Ken was known for his love of barbecue, classical music, patriotism, history, national parks and photography. He perhaps was best known for his limitless supply of jokes, and for bringing laughter and joy to those around him.
