Glen H. ‘Junior’ Kesner Jr.

Glen Harding "Junior" Kesner, Jr., of Green Spring, W.Va. went to be with his Lord on Sunday, July 14, 2019. He was 62 years of age.

Born in Cumberland, Md. on July 19, 1956, he was the son of the late Glen H. and Madeline P. (Leasure) Kesner. Besides his parents he is preceded in death by his wife, Sheila Kesner.

Junior is survived by his brother, Floyd "Charles" Kesner of Green Spring and his four sisters, Elizabeth Martin of Romney, Vera Kesner (Harry) of Romney, Conna Shanholtz (Richard) of Romney, and Donna Kidwell of Fort Ashby. He is also survived by numerous nieces and nephews and his special fur baby, Champ.

Junior was raised in Green Spring and graduated from Hampshire High School, class of 1975. After graduation, Junior went to work for Koppers in Green Spring. After leaving there, he delivered newspapers for the Cumberland Times News for 20+ years. He also co-owned and operated the Green Spring Valley Store until it closed due to health reasons.

Junior married Sheila in 2015, until her untimely passing in 2017.

Junior was definitely one of a kind. He was fun loving and liked to joke and kid around. In his younger years he loved to hunt and fish. He could watch old Westerns for hours. Junior was a homebody, but was very caring and would help anyone who needed it. He will be sadly missed.

A private memorial service will be held at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, please consider making contributions to Shaffer Funeral Home, 230 East Main St., Romney, WV 26757 to help offset expenses.
