Glenn was wonderful to be around. Enjoyed spending time with him in Port Allen Rotary Club years ago. Always brought joy to the room.

Miss Anne and Elizabeth,
My sympathies to you both. Mr. Glenn was a fabulous storyteller and had such a great sense of humor. I enjoyed his stories as a child and appreciated our visits even more as an adult when he stopped in at the dealership.

Glenn worked for my father, Gilbert J. Durbin, when he worked at the American Sugar Cane League. Daddy was so fond of Glenn. So sorry for your loss.
