So sorry for your loss. I also had the pleasure of working with Glenn at Southland. It was the mid-80’s and we were planning a company presentation for a visit from Southland corporate staff. Glenn ended up taking photos of employees and departments in their work areas, then creating slide show set to the theme from “Chariots of Fire” it was unbelievable and brought a lot of tears. Asked how he did it, he’d just say he hooked this widget to that gadget, no big deal. He will be missed.

My deepest condolences to the Berkner family. I was fortunate to work with Glenn at Southland Corporation. A super guy. We travelled to Las Vegas together in 1990 for a Texaco trade show. I was in sales he in Data Processing, he would oftentimes bend over backwards to run reports for me. We shared many laughs and meals together. I know his smile and kindness touched a lot of people . He will be sorely missed as I’m sure Glenn leaves a legacy that makes his family proud. Rest In Peace my dear friend.
I hope you can relish in his memory and that God and time take away your pain.

We have been Glenn’s next door neighbors for the last 6 years and he was always there when we needed him. He let us borrow a tool here and there, he would mow half of our lawn just to make it easier on us, but he said he liked riding on the power mower so it was no big deal. He was a wonderful man with a generous heart. Our family will miss Glenn very much. Signed, The Meury’s
