I was lucky enough to have known Glen for over 60 years. The two things I will always remember were his sense of humor and amazing memory. I sat with him on his back porch one afternoon while told me in detail of all the problems my Dad had with a 1958 Ford. This was over 55 years after my Dad sold it. The last time I saw him we talked about car auctions, the Bullitt Mustang selling for 3.4 million, '55-'57 Thunderbirds, and family. I will miss our visits and all the things I still had to learn from him.

Marlene- so sorry for your loss. “Ugly” will be missed, and was a unique ole codger who was unlike anyone else. I’ll miss our bantering back and forth. Thoughts are with you and the family.

To the Hague family and friends: I met Glen in 1972. In the 48 years since, I had no closer friend. Glen was intelligent, had common sense and a certain intuitive ability about him. He was quick, witty, and full of fun and surprises. He had a serious side also. As referenced in another remembrance, when my parents died, both Glen and Marlene stepped up in a surrogate capacity for me as well. Glen taught me numerous things about both old Fords and life. We will miss you! Bill Cooper

On my gosh Glen! Where do I start? You were one of a kind. You were my friend, my partner, my mentor and when needed after my Father passed away you were my surrogate Father! Your knowledge was endless and your life experiences were just awesome. There will never be another Glen, no one will fill your shoes! The days and nights we say and talked mean more to me than anyone will ever know. Glen, I love you!
Chris
