Glenn D Bujnoch

Glenn David Bujnoch, 69, of Cincinnati, Ohio passed away on September 28, 2023 surrounded by his family. He is survived by his wife of 42 years Susan (Vogel) Bujnoch, daughter Aunnie (Jon Wertenberger), sons Digger (Lindsay Beish) and Austen (Erin Williamson), and 10 grandchildren (Lucy, Rex, Clara, Waylon, Rosie, Walker, Brynn, Cole, Logan and Auggie). Glenn was predeceased by his parents John and June (Kelly) Bujnoch, brother Dennis Bujnoch and son Nic Kemen.

A Texas Native

He was born on December 20, 1953 in Houston, Texas. He was the third oldest of six brothers and three sisters. Glenn attended Mount Carmel High School and Texas A&M University.

A Professional Athlete

Glenn was recruited by Texas A&M University where he played football for four years. He has been named on their Top 100 Players and Top 5 offensive lineman honors lists. He was drafted by the National Football League in the second round by the Cincinnati Bengals in 1976. He played for the Bengals as an offensive guard from 1976-1982, during which time he was a member of the 1981 AFC Championship team. A notable moment was when he scored a touchdown on Monday Night Football against the Pittsburgh Steelers, something very few offensive lineman can claim. He then continued his football career with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers until 1985 playing a total of nine years in the NFL. During his time with the Bengals he met the love of his life, Susan, who was a Ben-Gal at the same time. Off record, they were the only Bengal/Ben-Gal couple to get married.

An Entrepreneur

Following his career in the NFL, Glenn was an entrepreneur owning many different types of businesses including a travel business, Mercury Travel, and a media company, Horizon Productions. He may be most known for owning two fried chicken restaurants on the West Side of Cincinnati, starting with the Pudgie’s Famous Chicken franchise followed by Booj’s Skinless Chicken.

A Humble Cincinnatian

Though Glenn was not a fan of the spotlight, you could find him signing autographs at Bengals games or attending charity golf outings later in life. He also supported Madi’s House and the Ken Anderson Alliance organizations to name a few. He loved his family the most and cherished their family’s annual beach vacation and he continued to honeymoon with his wife every year in Jamaica.
