My favorite memories of Uncle Glen all have to do with his love of gathering our family. He was notorious for the most fantastic four hour long dinners, full of laughter. Glen was always fully present, enjoying every moment of the time together. I'll miss his booming voice greeting me with "Hi Princess" and will especially miss hearing his laugh.

God. This man has done so much for my family. I’m not gonna lie, when I first heard about Glenn, he intimidated me. But once I was finally able to go visit and meet him with my fiancé Alex and hugs mom Pam, the fun just began there. We would alway go out and have an amazing time. However, I’ll never forget the time we went to visit, we went to the beach and an amusement pier. To my knowledge, he never went on too many rides/roller coaster! However I managed to get him on a water ride and got soaking wet! And not by 20 minutes later, I challenged “the old man” into a whack a mole contest. I miss his short, sarcastic humor that never got old....I will not be able to drink a glass of wine without the amazing memories that Glenn left for myself, my fiancé and the whole family. Glenn, rest is peace, you were and still are so loved.

We have know Glen since Chris and our daughter Lauren were in daycare together. Our fondest memories are when Chris and Glen were on vacation at Atlantis in the Bahamas at the same time our family was there. We enjoyed an excursion to a private beach together, it was a great time. He will be missed!

Dear Brother,

You were gone before we knew it
and only God knows why.
If love alone could have saved you,
you never would have died.

It broke our hearts to lose you,
but you didn't go alone,
for part of us went with you,
the day God took you home.

Our family chain is broken
and nothing seems the same,
but as God calls us one by one
the chain will link again.

Always in our hearts...
Sharon, Beverly, JoAnn and Bill
