  1. Glenn was my first instructor 20 years ago this past June. I thank him for keeping me interested in skydiving and planting the seed to becoming the multiple discipline instructor as I am today. It’s hard to think of how beginning with Glenn and continuing in skydiving and now working in the industry how my life may have been different without his initial direction. Blue Skies

For many years Glenn and a friend and one or two of his children would spend the afternoon with us on his treks to Ohio. We enjoyed his stories of his adventures and life in general, catching up on who was where and what everyone was doing.

Our prayers are with all his family and friends.

Glenn was a good man with a great heart who chose to share the joy in his life with others. His personality would light up a room.
