Ron wanted to let Glenn's children to know how special their dad was...he has fond memories of growing up with him, we enjoyed our horses together, playing basketball and many things that teenagers did..as we got older we sorta went our separate ways, but then our children brought us back together. We would always talk about old times and of course our children...his health. I am glad he is at peace now and no more pain..our deepest condolence to Brad, Todd,Sheryle and Stacie, our heart goes out to you kids, your father was to young to leave this world..we are in Az for the winter, we would be there in person if we could, but know we will be thinking of you. Ron and Connie
I was sorry to hear that Glenn had passed away. He was definitely the life of the party at the Legion when I worked there some years ago. He will surely be missed. David Fiebiger
