My belated sympathies to the family of Glenn. It is impossible to have lived in the Hatton area and not to have known this outstanding gentleman. I remember well his love for the community, his family and the respect he showed to all. He was a great example of a fine gentleman. Again, my sympathies to all. Helen

Gale and family members of Glenn. I'm so very sorry to hear of your father's passing. Everything I remember about your father was positive! All the way back to those pool-hall days in Jr. High and High School. He was a great man and will surely be missed by all who knew him. May he rest in peace.

Sorry to hear of Glenn's passing. I think often about the spring of 1980 when I helped Glenn do spring work. He made sure I went to baseball practice first. We met at a lot of auctions since then and always talked about farming. I will miss him.
