I'm so sorry to hear of Glenn's passing. I've gotten to know him the last couple years out at the bowling alley. Such a great guy who always spoke highly of his family. I've missed him and his ornery sense of humor and he will continue to be missed at the lanes. Rest in peace buddy. -- Mary Ann Charlton Edwards

Sorry for your loss. I worked with Glenn at the Blast Furnace. He helped me a great deal to learn as I was new there & was always willing to help. They don't make men like him anymore.
