Baby Glenn is what I called him until his last breath was drawn. Glenn was my baby brother and didn't mind being called "baby Glenn". Glenn was one who never complained even when he was in pain. He cared about others and their well being.
Glenn was also a jokester. He had my daughter Leslie, when she was little thinking he was her older brother. Lol. He also use to terrorize his four siblings growing up, even into our adulthood. We used to tell him that one day we would rise up against him! He would just laugh in our face. Finally! Jason, my son was almost eye level to him. It shook him for a moment; then back to terrorizing us, including nieces and nephews. (Smh)
Glenn has traveled near and far touching many lives along the way. My baby brother, will be greatly missed.
'Gone but Never Forgotten'.

I met Glenn, on my first day, on the job, at Parata Systems, in 2007. As the first group of new trainees gathered, of course, no one knew anyone. But, even as I was slightly reserved, at first, Glenn was the kind of person who would not remain a stranger, and would make it easy to loosen up, to a new acquaintance. Throughout Glenn's and my friendship, we frequently called each other, when either of us needed an ear for which to vent. Glenn was both smart and patient. On multiple occasions, I would ask him for technical assistance, and, no matter what I asked, Glenn never heard a stupid question.
In the days leading up to his passing. I tried to stay in touch, just enough to let him know that I cared about him, without becoming a nuisance. I did not know that the last time I spoke to him, would be the last time, though, I knew it was close. I just hope that on that last contact, Glenn still recognized that a true friend was checking on him.

I have known Glenn for 12 years while working at Parata. In fact, when he decided to move from Hawaii back to the states, I became his replacement. While Glenn trained me in Hawaii, we had an instant bond. Besides work, our common interests where watching sports (especially football) and sharing a beer when time allowed. We could talk for hours and referred to each other as, “Brother from another mother”.
Everyone in Hawaii loved Glenn. His customers appreciated him because of his patience and personality. His friends like him because he was absolutely the coolest person. My family loved talking to him because he was both friendly and fun. He will be missed!
When a person whom we love passes on, it can be hard to understand why God took him from us. In Glenn’s case, such an early age. But please find comfort in knowing God had a very special assignment for Glenn in heaven.
To the family of Glenn Trotter: our deepest sympathy. Please take comfort in each other and knowing he is now with God.
Love, Brian Tamura and Family

I met Glenn almost 25 years ago at my first job. We have been friends ever since. He has been like a big brother to me. This man was a wonderful person. Kind, generous, funny, he had a heart of gold. I am so blessed to have had a friend like him. I will always treasure our memories together. The trips we took. One of the best memories I have is him being on my honeymoon with my husband and I! (He lived in Hawaii at the time) he took us to all the local places and we got to do and see things that a normal tourist would never!! I know he struggled this past few years, and he fought a tremendous fight. Glenn My dear friend, I will miss you more than you could ever know. I love you my big brother.

I first met Glenn 12 years ago while working at Parata Systems. We had a lot in common and soon became fast friends. Although I live in Michigan we kept in touch thru text and calls. He was one of the nicest and most down to earth person I've ever met.
I was deeply saddened by the news of his passing. My thoughts and prayers are with his family during this difficult time. He will be greatly missed.

Special is defined as better, greater, or otherwise different for what is usual. Glenn was the definition of special. He carried a sense of peace and warmth that made everyone feel welcome no matter if he had known you one minute or a decade. I was blessed to have his presence at my wedding and celebrated other great events with him. I always looked forward to having him around as his kindness and positivity was contagious. He will truly be missed and I’m just grateful I have such joyful memories of him and had the opportunity to tell him how truly special he was to me and everyone around him. May he Rest In Peace.

To all that new Glenn, knew what a spectacular man that he is, not was. For anyone that we’re lucky enough to know him we’re touched.
He would go out of his way to be there for his friends and family. HE WAS ALWAYS there. All can attest to this.
If I were to call him up & tell him in the past that I was having a bad day, he would drive five hours to see if I and my family were well & would show up unannounced.. He did this for all of us, and you know who you are.
He was the Best Man in my wedding, and a best friend.
I’m sure that we have all shed many tears in his passing. However, he kept a lot of his illness candid fore he wants us to remember how he lived.
We must rejoice in his life, we will see him in eternity.
GOD BLESS YOU “G”

I didn't often get the chance to speak with Glenn, but whenever I did he was always a great person to talk to. He always seemed to be very upbeat. My condolences to his friends and family, losing people is never easy.

I have known Glenn for many years. We worked together at Parata. I spent time on the road with Glenn. He was one of the nicest and most sincere men that I have ever met. I lost touch with him the last few years, I am very saddened that I let that happen. Glenn will be missed. He was WAY to young.

I met Glenn at Victory Baptist in Pine Bluff Arkansas. He was the only one who befriended me as I stood off to the side. We became fast friends. Played basketball together. We would laugh and call him “Mumps”. We all loved to carry on with Glenn, and Glenn loved to give it back. Once I came to see him in Texas and we chased crows in the parking lot at Kroger. He scolded me, “Man black people don’t do this kind of thing.” Glenn was a pretty good writer. There was always something light-hearted and yet very deep about him at the same time. He was my friend.
