I am deeply saddened by the news of Glen’s passing. My condolences to Family in your heartfelt loss of a good, kind and ingenious man. I am thinking of you.

I appreciated his ‘tinkering’ skills very much in his care for my cars. He was always helpful and reasonable with me. He took the time one day to show me his wonderful heating system for his shop. I was most impressed! I will miss seeing him in the community.
