Glen never missed a great round of golf and loved boating, dancing and gardening in his vegetable garden. He loved to talk “Politics’ and Economics’” to anyone who loved to debate or just to reminisce. In Glen’s past-time reading was a way to relax and unwind. Christmas was a holiday that he looked forward to every year; family, food, and Christmas decorations is what he most desired. To remember Glen is to remember him as a  caring, family man who was nurturing in everyway.
