I remember Glen as a very smart man and a nicer person. I learned a lot from him in the early part of my career and I am very thankful to have known him. My condolences to the family.

Sorry to hear of Glen's passing. He was a wonderful man who always had a smile and a good word. Visiting with Glen was half the fun of going to the basket ball games. I will miss him.

Because he was a basketball fan, I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Glessner, a kind, caring, and supportive man. Before our games, I would go up in the bleachers and talk to him and he always had good advice, not only for the basketball game, but for life as well. He was always very supportive of me and it meant so much to always see him in the stands. I am very sad to hear of his passing, and will definitely miss him at my future basketball games.
