I did not know Glenn well, but saw him weekly at the gym where he trained with my son. What a nice man he was, friendly and jovial. It was a pleasure to have him greet me every week. It seems like a small thing, but if we can give a kind “hello” the way Glenn did we can all make the world a better place. He will be missed.
