He also enjoyed fishing or spending time watching the wildlife while sitting on his porch. Glen is survived by his son, Gregory of Plainfield, IL; and daughter, Jennifer (Jason) of Elburn, IL. He was a loving grandfather to granddaughters, Ashley and Elizabeth and grandsons, Lance and Joseph. He is also survived by his sister, Laura, several friends; and his special dog Red.
