I counted Dr. Glen Reiff as a dear friend. When I was in town at the college, he enjoyed picking me up and going to Cracker Barrel, as he would say, so he could pick my brain. He loved to discuss theology and always impressed me with his depth of knowledge as well as the practical application of his learning. He was a Godly man who loved people. Our visits with him and Helen are among our treasured memories. May God bless his memory!

The wisdom and counsel of Dr. Glen Reiff had a profound influence upon my wife and I at a very crucial point in our lives. We will forever be grateful! His tender heart, deep interest, and kind words deeply resonated with our spirits. It helped us to map our lives in a way that brought rich dividends. He has been a dear friend and mentor over the last 45 years. Our condolances to his dear wife, Helen, and to the members of his family.

Brother and Sister Reiff made a profound influence on our lives as first-time missionaries to Honduras. We are blessed to have spent time together on and off the mission field and sitting under his ministry; we will never forget his example and testimony. May our Lord and Savior provide comfort and peace to Sister Reiff and their family. Tom & Sharon McKnight

I only had the pleasure of meeting Glen a handful of times. However, every time I did, I felt warmth, joy, humor and the Holy Spirit radiate from him. I have had the good fortune of being an adopted member of his sons family and if the man Glen raised his son, Duane to be is any indication of the man Glen was, heaven gained a true soldier. Moreover, the 3 young men that Duane raised, Duane Jr, Michael and Toler are also a testimony to the kind of leadership and man Glen was. This world is better because Glen was in it and it will continue to be better because of the legacy of his son and grandsons.

I am glad that I got to know Glen. He was a great man with a tender heart for spreading the gospel. I enjoyed the times he recounted extraordinary events he experiences, especially those from his time on mission fields. One of my favorites what his chance meeting with Fidel Castro in the jungle (you can also read that account in Glen's book). The only problem I ever had with Glen is that he married our dear Helen and took her down south. Helen, you are in our prayers.

Jody and I share with so many others in offering our condolences and prayers to the family of my dear friend, Glen Reiff. I was privileged to be his pastor while he and Helen lived in Cincinnati at the Kenwood Bible Methodist Church. So many special memories flood my mind as I think of my friend. Easting at Skyline Chili, ice cream in their home, testimonies he would share at church, and of course, hearing him pray. Once while I was pastoring there, he and Helen went to Israel. When he came back home he presented me a picture of him praying at the Wailing Wall. He told me that he was praying for me while that picture was taken! I'll cherish that picture for the rest of my days! Helen, we love you and we are praying God gives you peace and comfort in the days ahead.
