So sorry to learn about Glen’s passing. I met Glen at the Cardiac Rehab exercise program and I live near your home. Glen was always a burst of joyful friendliness whenever he arrived or left the exercise room. He greeted everyone exercising and knew everyone’s name. His smile made everyone’s day better.

I’m so sorry about the passing of Glen passing away. He surely loved the Lord and always said JESUS is coming. Glen always had a heart of gold and knew how to tell jokes. Glen will be missed for sure but not forgotten.

I am so sadden by this news. I met Glenn when I worked for his Cardiologist. I was the first contact he had with that office and everytime he came in we always hugged each other. No matter where I was at in the office I could always hear his voice and it would automaticially put a smile on my face! He is going to be gratly missed by many and my condolences go out to his family.

I’m so sorry to hear about Glen. Glen and Marian were great friends with my parents. Jerry and Connie Seavolt. I have great memories of them coming out to their house and playing music and singing. I went to the farm with my Dad to the prayer meetings and your Dad was always so cheerful. You all will be in my thoughts and prayers. We know that Glen is in heaven and seeing all of his family and my parents. What a celebration he is having.

Marian, Glen Jr and Bryan
Noel and I are extremely sorry to hear of Glen’s passing.
As neighbors for many years, my mother, father and myself have witnessed Glen’s love and
concern for his neighbors and many others. Many times we had asked for Glen’s help in many
different ways and his answer was always a very quick yes!! I do not believe he would have
said no to anyone. This world will miss Glen immensely!
God Bless
