CandleYou have my deepest sympathy. We grew up as neighbors across the road on the Dutton farms in Milford Twp. I have such fond memories of being with Glen and his parents. I loved Mabel who took care of us for a few days when Dad and Mom went to Chicago when I was a preschooler, only time they ever left us. I especially remember Glen and brother Dick being together with their 4-H calves. Now a couple of weeks later Dick is joining him. Prayers are with your family.

CandleDear Lois, Ginger, Susan and Marcia and families,
I was saddened to read Glen's obit. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time of closure. May a candle remind you of the precious memories and blessings Glen
has provided his close family. I well remember Glen in the Milford Twp Class of '49- our smallest class, and, ALL boys(4)! Our senior boys were our bus drivers. Glen drove for our NE quadrant of the 36 square mile Twp when I was in 4th grade. He was always so kind and greeted us with his nice smile and big brown eyes. With that, and watching all the sports and activities of the calendar year at Milford we all felt we knew our older school mates like family members. Glen's demoniac contributed to my desire to Co-write the book, Milford Twp And Proud of IT! with Dale Hughes, which depicts the wonderful Milford community. Those were wonderful formative years! Glen RIP til we meet again! God's Peace be with each of you.
Jurine Borton Moore, (Milford Twp Cl of '56); Marion

First of all my sincerest condolences to Lois, Ginger, Susan, and Marcia and their spouse and children. Glen was a good man and worked many jobs in his life...he was a hard worker. We were family when Marcia and Steve were married and of course events related to Becky, his granddaughter. He took such good care of his family. He will be missed. Rest in Peace, Glen!
