Glen was a member of the National Hot Rod Association.  As a young man, he enjoyed drag-racing and has always enjoyed restoring old cars.  He was excited by anything that makes noise, has a motor, and goes fast.

He was of the Lutheran faith, a devoted husband, a loving father, grandfather, and great grandfather, and a great friend.  He will truly be missed by all who knew and loved him.

    I worked for Glen for many years, and worked with him even longer. He was the best boss and co-worker I ever had. You always knew where you stood with him. We continued as friends even after he left the CONTEL family. Rest In Peace my dear friend.

    To his family, I extended my deepest condolences. He was one-of-a-kind and will be sorely missed.

      Thank you Marsha for your kind words. You are right. My father was a scrupulously honesty and forthright man, and you always knew exactly where you stood with him. I know he missed his CONTEL family, and often told stories about the people he knew then.
