I knew Glen as a teenager in Aurora. He was part of the gang. Glen was a sweet soul. And an original. God bless you on this journey Glen.

I have known and worked with Glen since I was 16. I would take over from Glen after his day shift pumping gas at the Texaco in Aurora. He would always return to the gas station after his shift and hang out and talk while I pumped gas. When I started working for Diamond he started there with me around the same time. He was always so reliable. I could always count on Glennie if I needed someone to plow or jump in a salter. I used to take my young boys over to his house at Christmas time and have a few beers with him. They remember being scared of him at first but soon realized he was just nice guy. They would always ask me about "Big Glennie". As they got older they too worked at Diamond and also got to spend time with Glen. They were upset to here of his passing. I will miss Glen, he was a good sole.

When we were teenagers Glen was a great support. I haven’t seen him since then but once in awhile Glen crosses my mind. Good people stay in your memories. May he meet the angels for a wonderous journey. Blessings Sherry
