I got to know Glenn when I started pitching shoes.Over the years we must of had around fifty some games against each other.But the one thing that I remember most is when you saw him at a tournament he would greet you with a smile and hand shake.He was one of the most well liked gentleman that would you want to meet.I will miss him.I”m sure he has a game going on somewhere right now.

  2. Glen was a wonderful gentleman very good horseshoe pitcher. Always a lot of fun to pitch with. We are very sorry for your loss.
