Glenn was an avid motorcycle enthusiast. He loved going on rides with his friends and family on his Harley Davidson and hanging out with his buddies at the Steel Horse Saloon. Glenn enjoyed hunting, camping, collecting guns and knives and listening to “Outlaw Music”, as he called it. Some of his favorites include the Best of the Bluegrass, Lynyrd Skynyrd and David Allan Coe. In his down time, he like to watch Jeopardy, Wheel of Fortune and Nascar. The Daytona 500 was his favorite track and Dale Earnhardt Sr. his favorite driver. Glenn will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.
