As an AISD teacher, I enjoyed visiting with Glenn on days when he was substituting; In recent years, we both enjoyed supporting our grandsons in COOPER athletics and I often saw Glenn at the Rose Senior Building enjoying his time with others. He and his wife have a wonderful family and they are his legacy! I offer my sincere condolences to his family!
