I am so lucky to have had Glen as an employee, co-worker and friend. He always cared deeply for others and treated everyone with respect. Glen will be sorely missed by everyone who ever had a chance to meet him.

Glen and I share a birthday and every year he insisted on cooking and entertaining for our group for what he called “my” birthday (not his). I would continuously remind him, “its your birthday too!” But he would brush it off and wanted to celebrate me instead. Glen was just that type of person, he always thought of others before himself. He also organized our holiday luncheons and cooked at our chili cook off every year. Glen loved to keep others fed, full and happy.

The day I found out you had passed will be a day I will never be able to forget. I am so grateful that I was able to meet you and share some time on earth knowing you. You will forever be in my heart. Rest In Peace dear Friend.

I was blessed to get to know Glen (and David & Cheri) as I spent time with Mildred. He was a gentle soul, always thoughtful and considerate. Reading the tribute, I realize I did not know Glen in his younger days because I hadn’t a clue about his Jet skiing and chili cook offs. But we often discussed our mutual enjoyment of Houston sports teams, and Glen’s love of family was evident to all! He will be missed
