Glenn had many skills and talents. Whether a business meeting, fishing trip or round of golf, he had the ability to turn strangers into acquaintances and acquaintances into life long friends. Among his many endearing qualities was his ability to always be kind, generous and never miss a chance for laughter. Anyone who knew Glenn was given a special gift- friendship from a man who never placed himself ahead of others, always remained loyal and made the gospel the center of his life. He was truly a good man who I had the distinct privilege to call my friend.

Our hearts go out to Phyllis, Scott, Mark, and all the Taylor family at Glenn's passing. Glenn was a man that our whole family both admired & respected. In his day, when he was at the top of his game, he was a indomitable spirit with a quick wit, an eagerness to help others, and a loyal friend to all who knew him well.

We wish Glenn God's eternal peace, and His comfort to the family he left behind.

Hello, It is me again. Sorry, I have been thinking of Glenn since I saw this online. I thought I would share another story that Glenn told me.
When Glenn was a young man, he knew my father Anthony Petulla, but he was friends with my uncle Joe Petulla. One day he came down to my fathers and uncle's house on Front Street. The Petulla's had the whole block on Front Street. He came to the house and my Uncle came out to talk to him. Not long, my Grandmother came out and started yelling that Joe had work to do and to get in the house. Glenn said she scared him so bad ( all 90 lbs of her ), that he ran all the way back up to his house. We laughed so hard at that memory because little Italian ladies can really scare you.. Thank you .. I Hope you enjoy this memory as much as I do. Linda Petulla-Collins

To the Taylor Family, Glenn hired me at First Seneca Bank August 1974. He actually did this for a neighbor of his, Dick Bucholz. That goes to show what kind of Man he was. This was my first job, making $330.00 a month and I had money galore ( LOL ). Anyways, when I saw Glenn's passing, I couldn't pass up the chance to tell you how wonderful he was to me. I couldn't has asked for a better Boss. So kind and caring. I actually left FSB in 1982 to start a family. In 1987 when I was ready to go back into the workforce, this beautiful Person, hired me back. Can you believe it? Words cannot express how I feel about him as a boss. I can just image what a wonderful husband,father,grandfather, he was. Respectfully, Linda Petulla-Collins
