So Sorry to learn of Glen's passing. I was friends with his Father and Mother and have known him since he was a young boy. He always had time to say hello.
Like his Father, Glen never met a stranger He will be missed.

I grew up on Rileysburg Road with Glen. We also went to Lynch Grade School together. We road many a mile on our bikes down those country roads. I'm so sorry to hear of Glens passing.
