Glenn was a great teacher and a wonderful human being. He was my instructor and my teacher. He spent time in class on what he called LIG life in general. It was his perspective on what would help us fulfill our lives. I learned a great deal from him not only about woodworking but also about relating.

He will be missed. I know you are in heaven now Glenn. I will look forward to seeing you rise with the Angels. Your student and friend forever Paul

What a full and fulfilling Michigan life Glenn led: teaching, learning, raising a family, enjoying nature! And how wonderful to share it with him for 51 years! He will be sadly missed, but lovingly remembered. Your friends are thinking of you in your time of grief, Anne, and praying for comfort and healing for you.

We are so happy that we were able to spend some time with Glen and Ann at our high school reunion that year. Many good memories were shared and we hoped more would be made. So long, GRG, my old school buddy with the cool initials from FAG, the guy with the not so cool initials. You will be missed.
