Glenn was a machinist for Integrity EDM. He was proud of his Christian values. He was a biker through and through. Glenn enjoyed the long trips he took on his Harley Davidson motorcycle with family and friends and just completed a ride a few weeks ago of over 300 miles with Mark Mader and Cathy Coan. He was devoted to his country, serving in the United States Navy. If you knew Glenn, then you probably had the opportunity to hear him play his drums at least a few times.
