I am so sorry to hear if Glenn's passing. I knew him many year ago when he was friends with my brothers, but he was a friend to the family. He was always the nicest, sweetest guy. He was so generous. He would give you his last dollar if you needed it. I will always remember him always smiling. Another good person taken too soon. Condolences to the Marvel family.

Glenn was truly an amazing person. I worked with Glenn for the past five years on the custodial staff at Stephen Decatur Elementary School. We worked well together and we became good friends. Family was very special to him as he would tell me about how they would spend time together during the holidays, vacations, and other get-togethers. He also had a great love for his pet rabbit, Spunky. I could see how Spunky was able to brighten Glenn's life. Glenn was caring, giving, and kind; simply just a wonderful person to be around. I will truly miss him. Rest in peace, Glenn.
