I remember the many times Glenn and I would pick up Virginia and go out for dinner. They were both such great people and more importantly GREAT friends/family.

They always made me feel apart of the family. He will be missed by all. He is now where he wants to be....with Virginia.

Love you Glenn!

Glen was interviewed by our youth and he shared "war stories", with laughter and tears. Amazing history he had.

Lynn and I send our deepest sympathy, thoughts and prayers to Sue & Frankie and their families! My sister Sandra and I were friends with Sue as teenagers! Mr Kaylor was such a sweet man and so funny, he was always making us laugh! Lynn’s late parents, Sam & Aileen Dever were very good friends of Glenn & Virginia Kaylor...they are all reunited once again in heaven now!

I knew Glen when I was friends with his sister Bette Widener when we were in Junior High and Senior High at North. Later, we lived in the same neighborhood. He was a good Christian man and was always very nice to me.

My sincere sympathy.

I will always remember Uncle Glenn as the head of our family. No matter what was going on in life, he was always there for us, family. That was the way it was. Uncle Glenn put us first. He never forgot about the family. A true christian he was. He put God first, family next, then the world. He gave his life as he was called to do.
I can say I truly loved my Uncle Glenn. He taught me more about life than anyone can ever know. He always had time to share with us. He taught us how to laugh, enjoy life and love the Lord. Rest in peace my sweet sweet uncle. Enjoy your life in heaven. I love you, Rene'
