Glenn was one of the hardest fighters many of us has ever seen and it was demonstrated in his fight against cancer. He will be missed greatly by his family and many of his nieces and nephews for his funny jokes and harassment and joking at family gatherings. He enjoyed sitting with his beloved wife Andra and their 3 fur babies on the front porch watching and feeding the white tail deer by hand. Glenn loved his animals and all animals loved him. Glenn was very proud of his heritage from his Australian mom making one trip to the mother land with his mom. Glenn was also enjoying his retirement with gun smith work and was very good at building handmade knives, spurs, and a variety of black smith projects.
With the vast work experience he was blessed to have a large circle of very close friends. He was one of the most loyal friends and his circle was also very close and loyal. Through all his time fighting this disease no one ever heard Glenn complain or feel sorry for himself but instead would lean on his Friends. The family would like to acknowledge his many great friends and the support he received from them. Also the great staff of M. D. Anderson and all the supporting staff that made his experience bearable.
