I was so sorry to learn of Glen's passing! My heart goes out to Eileen, Kevin, Ellen and Lisa. The paths of our lives have taken us in different directions, but I fondly remember the many good times our families spent together when we were young. May you all find peace in knowing Glen is at rest.

Growing up it was always a pleasure running into Glen and Eileen. Glen always had a smile on his face and a great lust for life. I offer condolences to all family members and am saddened to hear of Glens passing. He will be missed by many. Marion Hodder (Meek)

Aileen, Kevin, Ellen, Lisa, Amanda, Jeffery and Jessica. My condolences. Glen was a great man and I enjoyed our many talks. When I picture Glen in my mind it is usually leaning on a vehicle looking at the engine discussing its specs. While he never had an official hobby his focus was on his family. He was there for you and clearly loved each of you very much. He will be missed. Your friend and unofficial son/brother/uncle Mike Bechard
