Really shocked to hear of Glenn's passing. My deepest sympathy to his family. He loved his hunting and we always talked about getting together when we both retired to hunt together at each other's camp. Will always remember driving around in the Monte Carlo and playing Creedence Clearwater Revival songs on the 8 track back in the early 70's. We were best buds growing up and always did something with racing from HO race track racing to model car racing then going to Reading to see the Modifieds race. He surely will be missed.
