Glenn was such a talented guy. Does anyone else remember going to his garage jam sessions? Vance Loerstcher and Colleen Collins and Glenn made an awesome trio, I think Greg Starley even joined in with them on the drums a time or two. It is interesting to know that he stayed with and achieved his dream of playing and performing professionally...What a guy!!  R.I.P.    Heidi Hilton Post

Glenn was a great friend and next door neighbor.  Jimmy Bird and I knew him well from Scouts and church.  I was sad to learn of his passing.  Susan Dalton, our classmate, moved into the home Glenn lived in.

Glenn was Part of Joe Hill Union Band which I believe included Kathy Jones and Greg Starley. Glenn was a great Bass player, and just an all around great guy.
