I met Dr. Dille in fall of 1980 when I was a part-time graduate student in the English Department with an office across from his on the fourth floor of Bradley Hall. Over the years, as I earned my master’s degree and continued to teach ENG 101: Composition, I often was assigned to that same small office and enjoyed many delightful conversations with him. He clearly loved his family and teaching. And, I so enjoyed his sense of humor and interest in my family as well. He and I often commiserated over the lack of understanding of English grammar by our students which made their learning of Spanish and English punctuation so difficult. Even though I later was a tenured lecturer for the English Department in an office far from his on the “remodeled” third floor of Bradley Hall, we would still chat in the elevator or in the hallway. I missed our conversations when he retired in 2005, but I will always remember him and his spirit so very fondly.

I extend sincere sympathy to each of you on the loss of your father and grandfather. I have been a friend of Glen’s for many years. We had many good times together. I last visited him in November in Peoria and was planning to return for a visit next week on my return from Florida. He obviously lost his courageous battle. My thoughts are with you at this time.
Sincerely, John Brooks Noyd

Family and friends,

A person that departs from this earth never truly leaves, for they are still alive in our hearts and minds, through us, they live on. My mom and I extend our most sincere condolences to all.
