Glenn's obituary

Glenn Paul Tietjen, age 70, of Sacramento, California passed away on April 8, 2021, from complications of a life-extending surgery. He was predeceased by his mother, Joan McDermott Tietjen. He is survived by his wife of 42 years, Janice , daughter Jessica, his father, two brothers, and three sisters.

Glenn was originally from Long Island, New York. From the age of 16 until he was 27 he was a professional musician and he loved it, until he lost his passion. He wanted warmer weather so he decided to move out to Southern California, where he met his future wife, Janice. In 1985 they moved to South Natomas, with their two-year old daughter.

For employment he went to work for a few small companies and a larger organization but decided he would prefer to be self-employed. So in 1989 he formed Crystal Clear Professional Window Cleaners, which he ran for 23 years. By then he had found his passion for music again after forming and performing in the Sacramento region with a few small bands and as a solo artist. He decided he could share his love of music by teaching and sharing it with others. He started Natomas School of Music (NSM) in 2006 as its' first instructor. NSM turned 15 this year. Current there are 340 students that are taught by various teachers, either virtually or in-person. Glenn's wish was to continue the school as it is an integral part of the community.

Glenn was a private person who did not want a funeral.
