Glenn will be missed. Always a smile on his face whether at the thrift store or young at heart. Greeting me at young at heart with a smile and a joke. Where is Spots Wyoming he would ask. I didnt know and he said he just wondered because he heard it was slick in Spots. Made me smile after a treacherous drive in winter delivering meals. My son still remembers him as the greeter at Walmart with the ruberband worm trick. A life well lived. Condolences to the family.
