It is with great sadness that I learned of Glenn's passing. I just adored him and he was always so very sweet and caring. He came to Wednesday night suppers often and whenever I made soup, I made sure he went home with his favorite one...potato. He was such a joy to me and so many others. He was one of the most amazing men I have ever had the honor of meeting and I am blessed to have called him friend. He participated in just about everyone of the church yard sales. You could always count on him to have some kind of tool for sale. What a huge hole he has left in our lives. Rest peacefully in the arms of the Lord my dear, sweet friend.

Steve & Mike,
Our sincere condolences to you. Although we've
not had much contact lately (except for the visit to
see the Falcon) Glenn & Audrey were like family to
us. They were certainly counted among Mom & Dad's
very best friends.
Bet they're all touring around heaven together in
some old Caddy or Packard.

I first met Glenn in 1949 when he and my aunt Audrey came back to Minnesota for a vacation/visit after their marriage. He made a big impression on me, being a USMC veteran of WWII and his interest in antiques, mainly cars.

When I was leaving the Marines in 1956, I stopped to stay with them for a few days. They took me bowling (duck), helped me buy clothes and made me feel like a civilian again.

After my marriage in 1957, Judy and I visited them a number of times. Garage sales, flea markets and car shows were high on the list of activities. Over the years we became opponents, Vikings vs. Redskins. A sympathy card was passed back and forth, depending upon who lost. It became dog-eared and ragged after many trips back and forth.

When technology came along, Glenn became an e-mail addict (boy did he ever!). In 2010 after my wife died, I visited Glenn. We went to the Marine Corps Museum in Triangle, VA. and a car show in Hershey, PA. In 2016, I again visited after attending a USMC reunion at Quantico. That's the last time we were together. I'm going to miss his friend-ship and
e-mails. He and Audrey were high on my favorite people list!.

My condolences to Mike, Steve and their families.

Semper Fi Glenn, rest in peace.
