  3. To Cathy and family:
    It was with great sadness that I heard of Glenn’s sudden passing. I will forever have fond memories of the time spent at your cabin and some of your family gatherings. The many laughs we had on the cabin deck when the “storyteller” in Glenn took over. He was so entertaining. Glenn was a very kind and gracious host, and the true meaning of a “gentle” man. You are all in my prayers.

    Cathy, Lorraine and Arlene and family,

    Tom and I were stunned and so incredibly saddened to hear of the sudden passing of Glenn. He was a pillar in our St. Michael Community, a quiet yet strong presence both behind the scenes and giving a helping hand to those in need. We will miss his beautiful presence at Mass, at TMIY, and serving our community.

    May you be filled with loving memories when you think of him. We will dearly miss him.

    Tom and Maureen Ross and family

  10. Cathy, Lorraine, Arlene and family,

    My sincere condolences to you all. I was shocked to hear of Glenn’s sudden passing given we met the day before. As a regular presence at our TMIY Wednesday morning meetings, I miss his quiet witness of faith, and hearing of the challenges and successes he enjoyed as a man of faith, a husband, a father, and grandfather. He is a fine example of living the faith.

    May Glenn’s soul through the Mercy of God Rest in Peace.
