In the words of Glenn’s mother and father: “We were blessed and comforted by Glenn’s beautiful faith which never wavered as he looked to the Lord with thankfulness for every day and prayed for peace and healing as he said his rosary. He was so good to us and to everyone he knew. Glenn’s sister Patty passed away 29 years ago and Glenn joined her in heaven on her birthday.

On the night of his passing, Glenn was being awarded the Ray Klink President’s Award from the Land O’ Lakes Baseball Association in recognition for 27 years of playing and managing the Pewaukee Muskies.”

Glenn gave 34 years of dedication to his position as manager of accounting and payroll at Milwaukee Transport Services, Inc. and he made many close friends over the years.

Glenn treasured his wife, family and friends. He was also a true outdoorsman who loved golfing, hunting and rooting for his Wisconsin Badgers, Brewers and Packers.

“The memory of your beautiful smile, blue eyes and kind genuine heart will be with us until we are together again.”

God Bless You our precious Glenn, Your loving wife and family
