There don't appear to be any surviving records with that full name or with John S Glynn.  There are a lot of John Glynns but none that can be linked to Co Wexford that I can see.  You probably know some 60% of WW1 records did not survive bombing in the second war so it is always a 4 in 10 chance of records being found.
Are there any other clues - medals, regiment?

Oh...
I thought it was John Sexton from Glynn Co. Wexford, but that said while I can see a death for a John Sexton in Bulgan, Glynn in 1964 I can't see any Sextons living in Bulgan, Glynn in the 1901 or 1911 census. There is a lack of Sextons in Wexford in general and not many Glynns either.

Never thought of that Sinann!  No sign though of a Wexford John Sexton in the military records.  Hope the surname isn't Co!

I agree Sinann LINK to Death Record #175

A John SEXTON married a Louisa COLLINS on May 18 1920 in Glynn LINK
I believe John's address reads as Carrigmannon which is in Glynn
If correct his father was James

Louisa SEXTON died Mar 31 1960 aged 64 address Bulgan Glynn LINK

Louisa Jane COLLINS is on both census returns at Bulgan, Glynn

Two daughters of a John SEXTON of Bulgan Glynn died young

Mary Bridget SEXTON died aged 1 year & 11 months on Apr 26 1925 LINK #461
and
Nora SEXTON died on Dec 04 1932 aged 5 weeks LINK #461

He could have married into the area
Louisa COLLINS' father was from Co. Limerick and SEXTON is a more prevalent name there

A James SEXTON died on Feb 19 1898 in Glynn Co. Wexford LINK

He had married Mary Kate CONNOLLY d/o Nicholas CONNOLLY on Feb 16 1926 in Glynn LINK

He could possibly be a brother of John's
