Friends and family will remember Glenn for his wit and sarcastic ways about him. They will also cherish the caring soul and gentle heart Glenn would share with those he loved. He enjoyed ice hockey and faithfully followed every Bruins’ season. He also enjoyed golf and in his earlier years, bicycling. A highlight was completing the Pan-Mass Challenge three times. He enjoyed watching his grandchildren splash in the backyard pool. Glenn also looked forward to vacationing on Cape Cod and at the Outer Banks. He enjoyed watching over his family as they enjoyed time on the beaches.
A memorial Funeral Mass will be held in the near future, with a date and time to be announced. Glenn’s family requests you kindly consider a memorial donation to a charity of your choice in lieu of flowers.
