My deepest sympathy in the loss of one of the kindest men I gave known. I enjoyed out time working together at Trenton Hills, and dearly loved the anointed voice when Glenn sang. He had a wonderful laugh, and truly loved his family, and was a man of God.
May the Lord bring you all comfort in this time.
Love, Cathy

We hold so many great memories of Glenn and your family during the time you were leading music at ECC. Our boys still talk about the fun they had in the kid's musicals and can still sing the songs! We are glad we had the opportunity to reconnect with you, Jean, and Glenn at the Fairview Retreat a few years ago. Glenn lived his life well, sharing his God-given talents and caring deeply about others. May God provide comfort and peace in the time of such loss.

Working with Glenn and Steve when they were teenagers was such a gift to me. They loved using the gift God gave them, and they both gladly practiced every piece of music I gave them. Glenn always had a smile on his face, and it lifted my spirits to see him laughing as he teased his mom, Janet. It was cute when he teased his wife, Jean. He was a gift to our church at Munson UB. Always positive and a powerful influence on those around him. I am so sorry for all of his friends and family. It will be hard to live without his jovial personality touching their daily lives. Love and prayers for you all during this time of grief but rejoicing that he is in Heaven with our God!!

Glenn blessed the Fairview family and everyone he ministered to. I will never forget the first time I heard him sing If You Could See Me Know, as well as when he drove to OH to sing that song at my mom's celebration service. When I heard of Glenn's passing, I knew Glenn was in heaven with no pain and suffering, singing a new song of praise. The same song he sang to comfort others in their time of grief. Praying for comfort for Jean and family, knowing we are "not saying good bye", but just "see ya later". With deepest sympathy, Dave & Kathy Bruns

Condolences to the family during this difficult time. Cousin Glen was one of the kindest men I have ever met. It meant a lot to us that he traveled with family all the way to Alabama for our wedding back in 1999. I sincerely believe Glen has made the world a better place. We will be thinking of Jean, Anna & Lyndee (and their families), Cousin Steve and family, and our sweet Aunt Janet during this difficult time.

Dear Jean and Family, We connected with you in our early ministry and laughed, love and listened as the early sharp places were knocked off our souls. God moved through Glenn then and always with a quiet demeanor that was way more powerful than his exterior. We can't wait to meet up with you in the presence of the Lord and share stories of God's faithfulness and how you changed those around you. God bless you Jean, and all.

Dear Jean, Janet and the rest of your family. We were both saddened by Glen's passing. We lost a very talented man but God needed Him to lead His saints in Heaven. It's hard to give a loved one up but He is where we want to be. We were touched by his singing If you can see me now. I read it to my congregation here in Florida and it moved hearts. We are Praying for all of you during this difficult time. May God Bless You. Ric and Judy Dye
