My favorite memory of Joe was a few days before Christmas 2018. He had stopped by with his uncle. No one would help me hang my outside Christmas lights. But Joe. Being Joe jumped out and hung everyone of them for me even drooping them evenly as went. I thanked him profusely to which he replied "awww no problem "

My first time that I ever met Joe Glen he came to my house with one of my daughters and he raked my yard for me!! I think the next time I saw him he came with Jenea & sat on my couch and painted her toenails. This amazed me because Jenea cannot stand for her feet to be touched or to see people touch their feet. He was an all around good guy!! Fly high Joe Glen!! You will be missed by many!!!
