I will always remember Glen’s laughter and wit at UPC. His smile brightened up the room and every day he would greet me bright and early with a positive message. He was a true leader and hero. I hope it brings you some comfort to know that he was loved by me and so many other people. I wish you peace during this difficult time and may your many wonderful memories of Glen bring you comfort. He was one of a kind.

Tom, I knew Glen was your dad at a glance; same eyes, same mouth, same face. Still remember you booting them through the uprights for CHS back in the early 70s, and am thinking of you at this time. Godspeed, from an obscure but persistent classmate.
