Marsha and family, I'm so sorry to hear about Glenn's passing. He was my first supervisor there, and was also the first manager that I followed. He taught me so much about how to do things, what to be aware of, and how to treat people. We had some great times at work, as well as a few disagreements, but that's the way it goes. He always put it behind him and we always were able to work through things. We're going to miss him. He was a good person and a great coworker. I'm sure he and Charlie are up there looking down and having a blast! Rest in Peace, Glenn!

I always enjoyed working for Glenn as one of my first supervisors at Hershey Chocolate of Va. He went by the rules, but that’s how you learned. He loved working for Hershey and always wanted to please them. He spoke of his family a lot.

It has been just over 10 years since I saw Mr. Dean. The last few times we spoke, he asked good questions, provided life insights, and gave me credit for where I was heading in my life. This man made the best french onion soup on the planet!
