Glenn Lawrence Heap passed away on Saturday, February 17, 2018 at his residence. He was 32.
Born in Niskayuna on July 9, 1985, beloved son of Bruce A. and Kathleen Flanagan Heap.
A 2003 graduate of Niskayuna High School, Glenn went on to earn a BA in Political Science from the University of Buffalo. He began his career in the entertainment industry as assistant manager of the West Hampton Beach Playhouse. He then worked as an electrician/lighting technician on the set of "The Good Wife" for 7 years and worked on the set of "The Good Fight" and various other TV and movie productions. He was proud to have taught lighting classes at Johns Hopkins University. He loved snowboarding, surfing, music, superheroes and his dog Diesel “Deezy".
