Glenn was a close friend in High School . We had a fun times together back in the day . I always tried to visit him when visiting Soooner over the years . 
He certainly was one of the nicest people I knew . I struggle to believe he has passed away . He was in great physical shape over the years and it is so sad he got Alzheimer's.  My sympathy to his wife Char & their daughter and grandchild . And fellow classmate Art Hedlund and to all of Glenn's relatives and friends .

It was good to see Glenn at the class reunion. He never changed until this disease. He ran the electric through our place at Stone Lake. Enjoyed the time talking to him about it. RIP Glenn. You were a good man....

Once more we are saddened to hear of one of our Classmates passing. My deepest sympathy for Charlotte ,Art, and the entire Family. Glenn always seemed to have a smile on his face. I have some wonderful memories of our times together including a Cruise that Cindy and I were on and as we walked to our Room one Evening I noticed a group of individuals in the passageway and as we passed them I recognized Charlotte and Glenn how ironic and to realize it's a small World sometimes. We will meet again some day RIP until then old friend.

My thanks to our classmates for the thoughts, prayers, memory comments, cards, phone calls and donations to the two memorials I have chosen in Glenn's honor.  Thanks, also, to everyone who came over to visit with Glenn at the last class reunion.  He told me several times how much he enjoyed the evening.  Glenn was a special man with a great smile and will be missed by many.  We were blessed to have had a wonderful and fun 50 plus years together.  Char
