    I'm so sorry. I knew Glenn since his wife Carol and he operated a store in estacada and Molalla. The three of us were involved in the estacada development association and I was fortunate enough to ride with him when he got supplies for his store in estacada. They had a feisty Pomeranian dog that would never let me pet it. Carol and Glenn were good friends of mine.
