John Glenn, Presbyterian Ruling Elder and national icon, dies at age 95

John H. Glenn, Jr., best known as the first American to orbit the earth, died yesterday at the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center in Columbus at the age of 95. What is less known about Glenn is his lifelong membership in the Presbyterian Church and the faith that influenced his life’s work.
