Dr Jividen was a family friend for over forty years and my periodontist for thirty. He was a kind, gentle man who I adored. I only knew Grace and Glenn Jr but if the other children were anything like those two, they were brought up very well by Glenn Sr and Doris. I miss you, Glenn, but know you are in the arms of our Lord.

Great Periodontist and caring father and husband. I enjoyed his friendship when we were both in the fidelity Building and later served together at the VA of Dayton. RIP

I will miss you Uncle Glenn, especially the visits and the spirited "discussions" about religion and politics. You were a very good man and lived life as it should be lived. Condolences to and from everyone you touched.

My sincere sympathy to the Jividen family. I met Dr Jividen as a dental patient at WPAFB in 1975 and saw him yearly through 2016. I will miss this wonderful dentist-his expertise, and kind, gentle way. God Bless.
