Glenn and I were friends early in life as I grew up in Birmingham where we attended school together. That was a long time ago, but my memory of Glenn was that he was a good guy. I recall that as we were close to graduating high school that I got to ride in his Chevy Impala. I thought Glenn was the luckiest guy to have that car. Reading some of the comments here assure me that I was right about Glenn.
He was one of Birmingham's best.
Condolences and comfort to the family...

I have known Glenn all my life and I will truly miss seeing him grinning and waving as we go by. He could be funny, or just plain ornery or an old softie! He was one of my favorite people. There is a hole in our hearts today. Fly with the angels my friend!

I have So many good memories of Glenn over the past 50+years. Double dates with the four of us (a cork flying across the drive-in parking lot). The honor of standing with you as you were married. Float trips and family times spent together. Way too many times to list. Glenn was one of the people I knew I could call on if I needed help of any kind. His smile, teasing and presence will be missed. You family is very dear to us, and know that we are here for you no matter what you might need. Love to you all.

I've known this sweet soul my entire life. Was my oldest brother's best friend and was there the day they said good bye, as my brother left for Vietnam, to not return. It wrecked our community and families, but Glenn's family and his self always held a special place in our hearts. You will be greatly missed and prayers to your family for this healing time. RIP sweet friend! Lee and Carolyn Edwards

What a wonderful family to have in our community. Glenn will be missed and I truly enjoy all of the farming stories I hear about the Wrens. Paige, especially to you, I hope you have awesome memories to hold onto and know how still loved you are here. God bless you all and you are in my thoughts and heart. Please let the Lewis family know if you need anything.

Karlyn,
Heather and I are so sorry to hear the bad news about Glenn.
I didn’t know Glenn too well but well enough to see he was a heck of a nice guy.
Karlyn if there is anything we can do please don’t hesitate to call.
