Glenn will surely be missed. I knew him through his golf buddy, Frank. Teeing it up won't be the same without him. My prayers and warm thoughts go out to Tina, Frank and all of Glenn's family and friends at this difficult time. May he play from the golden tees in heaven!

Tina Buxton
It was such a pleasure to know Mr. Glen. During the time that I got to spend with him and Ms. Tina, I learned a lot about their love for GOD and their Christ Family. I am sorry that Mr. Glenn is no longer with us to spread that love, but I know that he is gone to his eternal home with our KING! His bright smile, warm hugs and beautiful words of encouragement will always remain alive in my heart. He was a wonderful person through and through! I pray that Ms. Tina and the rest of his family will look to GOD for strength and encouragement because their solider is now with a "Mighty Army."  I love you all and stay blessed.

I am very saddened to hear of Glenn's passing. I was fortunate to play golf with Glenn through his son Pete on several occasions.  He was always cheerful and nice. My thoughts and prayers to the family.
