Glenn was a true friend and a born leader. If he wasn’t mud bogging, he was riding horses or hunting. Glenn was a Lieutenant & Captain for the Scottsville Fire Department from 1988-2002. He was the President of Woodridge Sportsman Association and most recently President of Monticello Coon Club. He loved a crowd - the bigger, the better and never met a stranger. Glenn spent most weekends at the Charlottesville Moose Lodge dancing and soaking up good times with his friends. Most recently he enjoyed coon hunting and encouraged every kid he met to get a dog of their own. He had a unique way of getting folks together and enjoying anything he did. Glenn went out of his way to help anyone he could, and he brought the best out in everyone he met.
Glenn stayed positive up to the very end, but he couldn’t have done it without some very special friends. The family sends a special thank you out to Michael, Chris, Zach and Austin for keeping Glenn in the woods so he could enjoy his girl, Mercy. Special thanks also go out to Steve & Natalie Brown for always being there for whatever adventure we had, to the entire Lilly Family, thank you all for the last few weeks and all the good memories he left here with, to the Bear Hunter’s (Double Top Hunt Club) we cannot thank you all enough for the generosity and the kindness that was displayed by your group, a true showing of friendship and sportsmanship that will never be forgotten and left a lasting impression on Glenn. Pete Banton, thank you for just spending time with him. Thank you to all that stopped by, offered help and just gave Glenn the support he so needed. There are just far too many to mention.
