Dear Roy,

**Radio Host and America’s Master Handyman® Glenn    Haege dies following battle with cancer**
Glenn Haege,    America’s Master Handyman® and host of The Handyman Show with Glenn Haege    on Detroit radio for 34 years, passed away Monday September 11, 2017 after    a short battle with cancer. Haege was 70.
Haege, a Detroit    radio icon, started his broadcast career on WXYT-AM 1270 in 1983 and for    the past 11 years he was heard weekends on NewsTalk 760 WJR-AM. His radio    show was also nationally syndicated in 135 radio markets. It is estimated    that he had answered more than 85,000 home improvement questions during his    time on the air.
For 22 years he    was also a Detroit News columnist writing a weekly feature on home    improvement. He authored 11 books on subject.
Haege was inducted    into the Michigan Broadcasting Hall of Fame in 2011.
"Glenn was a    consummate radio professional who really cared a great deal about his    audience” said Rob David, the Executive Producer of the Handyman Show. “He    had a special way of treating every caller with respect. Each caller was    made to feel that their question was the most important one and that Glenn    was answering it for the first time."
A Warren, Michigan    native, Haege attended Northern Michigan University and then worked for the    Sherwin Williams Paint Company and for ACO Hardware prior to launching his    award-winning radio career.
"He loved    meeting his listeners and readers. He always had time to speak to them    wherever he was a restaurant, a hardware store or at various    broadcasts that he did in both Metro Detroit and around the country,” David    added. “Weekends on the radio won’t be the same without him. He will be    greatly missed.”
Beloved husband of    Barbara for 48 years. Loving father of Eric (Julie) and Heather. Dear    grandfather of 6 grandchildren. Survived by his mother, Marion; his sister,    Sharon; his brother, Robert (Kim); and 3 nieces and nephews.
