A funeral service was held for John Glenn at Ohio State University’s Mershon Auditorium.. John Glenn, a decorated U.S. marine aviator and astronaut, was the first American to orbit the Earth and, much later in life, became the oldest person to travel to space. He represented Ohio in the U.S. Senate from 1974-1997. He died Thursday, December 8, 2016, at the age of 95.

This musical portion of the service before the family entered included “Amazing Grace” and “The Impossible Dream.” close
