In reading all the wonderful memories that people shared – you and I can only come to one conclusion about Glenn Taggart; he was an outstanding human being and he will be dearly missed by those who knew him.

When I think about attributes I would use to describe Glenn, I think about authenticity, consistency, but most importantly to me, warmth and kindness. We are grateful and fortunate for the many excellent years of public service he willingly provided to our citizens and customers, while conversely saddened by his brief retirement he so diligently earned each and every day for 31 years.

I remember having a heart to heart conversation with Glenn a few years ago when our Orange County family unfortunately lost another wonderful human being, also sudden and way too soon. Glenn and I shared our collective pain for the loss of our friend and co-worker, and our shared belief that in our earthly pursuits, tomorrow is promised to no one.

Vivienne
I was so very sorry to hear of Glenn’s passing. I still remember the day I brought my bird, Patrick, over to your house and Glenn helped clip his wings. I remember seeing the beautiful pictures he painted and was so impressed by his talent. May he Rest In Peace.

With deepest sympathy
Debbie

I met Glen at Orange County Utilities over 20 years ago. He was a valuable asset to his employer and his contribution to utilities ‘ warehouse management and best practices will forever be recognized. Glen and I shared many memorable experiences both challenging and pleasurable ones. He was genuine and personable, a joy to be around. He loved his wife and spending time with family. Glen will be missed, but never forgotten. Rest In Peace my brother by another mother. 💝

I don't remember the first time i met Glenn, but I do know he was always nice to me, shared a big ole grin with me, and was happy to see me. When I had a chance to take a friend to visit Rob in New Orleans, Glenn was there too. The four of us had the best time we shared good drinks, good food, smiles and laughter. It was a rushed and busy day together, but i hope he remembered it fondly. I know I do.

Condolences to Glenn’s family during this difficult time. I enjoyed working with him prior to his retirement from Orange County Utilities. He always had a smile and story to share while taking pride in his job and leading his team. His fish fry dish at the annual holiday luncheon was legendary. Glenn was one-of-a-kind and made the world brighter. Thinking of you all!

I only knew Glenn for 5 years after coming to the Utilities Department but, it seemed like several years. He always updated me about his family. He smiled when talking about his grandchildren and going fishing with his brother. He was a personable coworker and always eager to help anyone out. He will truly be missed and I hope Vivian and his whole family finds comfort in knowing that he touched so many people.

Glenn was a gem of a human being. He was so nice and kind to every single person he met. The way he carried himself and lived his life made his personality/character inspirational. Such contagious energy, such a generous soul, such a hard-worker, such a fighter, and such an amazing example of how life should be lived - he had many loved ones and I’m glad we can honor him and cherish the memories that we all made with him. Until we meet again, Glenn. Love you sir.
