Joe met and married Dorothy Karlin in 2005. After retirement, he kept himself busy working and running errands for Stewart Title.

“Peepa” loved being with his family and did a lot of listening. He loved “Ma-noodle” or better known as Menudo. He made sure to always let you know, his name was Joe Glen “with 1 N”. He made sure his family had what they needed, you could talk to him about anything and knew when you walked away there was never any judgment. His table and home were always open. He had the sweetest smile and the bluest eyes.

He is preceded in death by his dear wife, Dorothy; his parents; and 2 brothers, Jim and Wayne.

Joe is survived by his very best friends and grandsons, Brandon Ammons and Rick Mendoza; daughters, Madelene Chavez and husband, Art, Sherrie Jacobson and husband Nick, and Trisha Golden; grandchildren, Sarah Weathers and husband, Ricky, Chelsea Dahl, Haley Dahl and Tyler Jacobson; 4 great-grandchildren, Nevaeh, Travis, Kanton and Tripp; and many nephews, extended family and friends.

    I have been visiting the place where Joe lived with my therapy dog for several years. Joe was my favorite resident, and I will miss him dearly. Such a dear, sweet man.

    Our deepest sympathy to Brandon and Rick. Although we did not know your Grandfather we did know that he was very special to you and a great person. The loving care you gave him was so unselfish and made his life more enjoyable. He must have been so very proud. The memories will remind you of the special person he was who will always be in your heart. We are keeping you and your entire family in our thoughts and prayers.
