Glen Robert Currier was born on April 24, 1956 in Downey, California, to Everett and Elizabeth Currier. He grew up in Norwalk playing baseball and loving animals, including snakes and mice. Glen was fantastic on roller skates. Glen graduated from Norwalk High School in 1974. It was in high school that Glen began attending Calvary Chapel where he became a believer in Christ. After high school, Glen joined the work force at the Gould Bass Company in Pomona, working as a manufacturing and wiring technician for 25 years. In the early 1980’s, Glen bought a little house in Bellflower which he eventually enlarged to a spacious two story home. Glen met Lorraine and fell in love in 1989.They were married April 8, 1995. Glen and Lorraine had twin daughters, Alexandra and Annalise, in 1997. Glen doted on his lively, beautiful twin daughters and attended all their theatre, dance and choir events. In 2003, Glen went back to school to get his Bachelor’s Degree. At the same time, Glen became Mr. Mom to the girls. Glen spent hours on the road driving the girls to and from school. He was also known to drive Lorraine to work. Glen was a loving and kind caregiver to his mom during her later years, as well as to Lorraine when she was ill. Glen is a man of many hobbies. He was a skilled gardener who could graft trees and grow prolific amounts of vegetables. Glen enjoyed baking the delicious recipes that he inherited from his mom. He had an artistic bent and made beautiful hand crafted wood items. Glen was also a jack-of-all trades and could fix anything around the home. Among his other endeavors, Glen wrote a children’s book and made beautiful pottery pieces. But most of all, Glen helped those in need. If anyone needed help with a project, Glen was there. He was always giving of himself and thoughtful of others. Glen was devoted to his family and selflessly gave of himself to them. On February 23, 2019, Glen was not feeling well and was admitted to the hospital in Downey. He unexpectedly passed away that evening. Glen leaves behind his loving wife, beautiful daughters, and many wonderful friends and family members. Glen is now in heaven with Jesus, the one he came to know and love in high school. Glen lived a wonderful life and will be deeply missed!

Glen was married to my sweet cousin, Lorraine. Lorraine is like a sister to me and that brought Glen even closer into mine and my family’s lives. He was a dear friend, an awesome “uncle” to my kids, a brother to my husband and just an all around kindhearted, selfless human being that we were all blessed to have in our lives.
He was so good with all the kids. He shared his love of nature and animals with them, as well as many other talents. He made a corn hole game featuring all the colleges that the kids were going to. He helped us with our plants and trees in our own backyard and shared the amazing veggies and fruits from his own garden. When he learned my daughter’s music box had quit playing many years ago, he tinkered it back to life. He loved to share his recipes with us, and he and Lorraine always hosted the most warm, fun, cozy, tasty Thanksgiving Day celebration.
Glen and my husband, Mitri, shared a special friendship. Two very different people from opposite sides of the world, found themselves more similar than different. Glen was such a loyal and supportive friend to Mitri.
Glen always made himself available to anyone who asked for help. I am really going to miss his signature smiley face, and the enthusiasm he had for life - a life of giving, helping, nurturing, and genuine loving - to all who were blessed to know him. May Glen’s memory be eternal. ❤️
You will be missed, dear Glen. With love, Linda

Thinking of Glen is easy because he has been a part of our family for so many years. Always at events with a smile, a fun story, a suggestion for how to fix something- I can hear him right now. When I needed to figure something out, Glen had an answer; and he always greeted me with a smile.
One of the last things Glen did for my family was to make sure he had a football for my 2 little boys. He had promised them one and he wanted to make sure he kept his promise. We messaged each other a few times about it, but that football is home with us now, and my boys are very grateful. ❤️
For my dear cousin Lorraine, and for Alexandra and Annalise, we are heartbroken and love you all so much. All I can do is send you my love and encourage you to embrace all of your wonderful memories, when you are ready. We truly love you and we really miss and love Glen. I believe he is watching over you right now, and will be with you, always.

From the time his daughters were in second grade until last year when I retired, Glen always made a point of keeping in touch with me at Lee! He would help me tend the garden, built and AMAZING bird house that stands to this day in his honor, and even stopped by last June to take me out to lunch for my retirement. Blessings to your family and may your hearts heal with the warm memories you all have! Love and hugs, Renee

Glen was always a great guy to be around! I loved seeing him every year at twins day and calling him “dad”. Always knew great jokes to share and always seemed to be in a great mood no matter what! Im really going to miss seeing him at twins days and talking to him over messenger once in a while.

A man who really knew how to be a friend...every picture you can see how happy he was to have Lorraine, Annalise and Alexandra. He was one of the rarest in the world...a good man.
