I'm very sad to hear of my step-brother Glenn's passing. He was always a cheerful guy when we met up. I remember he was very supportive when our father passed and I went up to Sandy for the services. Please give my condolences to the family and his friends and let them know I'm with them in thought. I wish I could attend the services in person but I'm mobility restricted. Rest in Peace big brother.

We will miss Glenn! He was such a a beloved figure in our lives! I will never forget him rescue after our car broke down on our way to the Florida house to visit the family.
Our children will never forget Stinker and Alice and our time on the houseboat when you came to visit. We send our thoughts, prayers and love to the family!

My heart felt sorrows go out to Glenn's family. Glenn and my father Henry "Hank" Fletcher we're close years ago. My dad would speak lovingly about his cousin. Although I didn't have the opportunity to have met Glenn, I know he was a good man and well loved by all that met him.
