He was a funny guy whose smile and laughter warmed hearts. His kindness towards people was evident in the many letters he kept from parishioners and friends.  After his 12 years of service to the church, he retired in Humboldt, NE to enjoy the country and quiet near his Nebraska family.  Glenn enjoyed performing in barbershop quartet, playing the bass and flying as an amateur airplane pilot.  He loved all animals and provided a home to many in his lifetime.  Glenn loved his family and was very proud of his brothers, his nephews and nieces, and his 8 grand-nephews and grand-nieces.
