Sorry for your loss of your family member and my Seawolf Brother. RIP. I do remember him from Vung Tau as I was Seawolf 9-68 9-69. He always seemed like a nice well liked young man. GOD speed. Prayers to the family.

To the family of Patrick Glenn Wilson,
I am sorry for your loss. I served in the same Helicopter Attack (Light) Squadron Three, HA(L)-3 in Vietnam. I did not know "Glenn", as he served before me from 1/12/1968 to 1/24/1969 in Vung Tau, Vietnam. I have been trying to find all 2,556 "Seawolves" who served in the short period of our existence, and "Glenn" was one of 241 that still hadn't been found yet. It appears he went by his middle name "Glenn", and I have been searching for Patrick. I'm so sorry that we never found him to get re-acquainted with his buddies in HA(L)-3 or to send him documents of his attachment to the squadron, and of our history, etc.
I would love to share this information with the family if interested. Please email me and let me know.
HA(L)-3, Binh Thuy, Vietnam, 1970-1972

I worked closely with Glen at OG&E for over 20 years. He called me his main most man. He was a hard worker and easy to get along with. Everyone liked him. I haven’t seen him since his retirement party. I am sorrowed at his passing. He had many friends and will be missed by all. His family are in my thoughts.

Glenn was a wonderful neighbor and a great friend. Very easy going happy person. What I remember most about Glenn, he would mow his yard during the summer every Saturday morning then sit in the driveway relaxing enjoying the progress and enjoying a beverage!!!
He would bring us Christmas goodies every year Sandy worked so hard making for her neighbors!!! I will so miss the Christmas delivery this year from Glenn.
Sandy we are here for you.
May the memories we share bring peace and comfort to your family. What a wonderful man taken too early. May God being your family peace and comfort.

Glenn was more than a neighbor, he was a good friend. He always had a smile on his face and a ready laugh. Glenn was always ready to help out. He enjoyed relaxing with neighbors in his driveway with a cold drink and visiting. He never had an unkind word. We will miss him.

Glenn delivered supplies to our office weekly and what a joy to see him walk in the door. He always had a smile on his face and the best stories to tell. He brightened our day so effortlessly! We have and will continue to miss him daily. Our condolences to his family and to the many others that are mourning his loss. He will never be forgotten!!

Glenn had such a friendly and welcoming personality. He was always so kind and made it so much fun to visit his and Sandy's house. It just feels like home there! I'm going to miss him telling me I'm skinnier than the last time he saw me. He just had a unique way of making everyone feel special. He will be missed by many, many friends and family. He was a wonderful Uncle. Love to Sandy, Christi, and Zac. He loves you all so much and was very proud of you. Lots of wonderful and funny memories to give you comfort.
