  • Rest in peace. You’re in God’s hands now — completely healed.

  • I am so sorry. Oh the fond memories I have of our childhood. From the massive train projects at your home on Pyles Drive to the calling out in Church by Rev. Doherty when Glen and I had more important things to talk about during church, lol and then the general mischief that kids just get into.Kelly and I are lifting you and your family up in prayer, praying that our God will wrap HIS blanket of comfort around you all in the days and weeks ahead. I will, as I know you all will cherish those fond memories that will forever live in my and your hearts.

  • Glenn was an affectionate individual . Remembering the youth group get togethers with Ogletown Baptist Church and many other churches. Glenn would get out his beloved guitar and start his medley of songs, many humorous. Within a second everyone was sitting around him listening and laughing ! Thanks Glenn for the wonderful memories ! It’s time to sing with the Angels !

  • To Cheryl, Evelyn, and family. So sorry to hear about Glen’s passing. Be comforted by knowing where he is and who he is with.

  • It was such a joy to serve on Ogletown’s Worship Team with Glen for almost 10 years. His musical talent was inspiring and dry wit could always make me smile. He will surely be missed. But I am glad to know his body has now been restored to full health as he stands beside our Savior.

  • We have fond memories of Glenn and he blessed so many of us with his music and his great humor. Our love, thoughts and prayers especially to his beautiful mother and precious wife. Love, Jim & Daphne
