  1. I’m sure Glenn never knew I existed, but I remember him as a young man while I was still just a kid. Glenn’s mother and mine were first cousins, and were very close. I grew up thinking his mother was my “Aunt Myrtie”. When I saw Glenn’s obituary, I wanted to send my sympathy to all his family. May God keep you all in his hands.

  2. Glynn gave so much to his family and to others during his time upon this earth. He got me involved in scouting and took me in as part of his family during my tour at Amarillo AFB. One couldn’t have asked for a better friend or mentor. Your loss is also our loss for he touched the lives of many. A good and humble man now at rest in his Father’s arms.

  3. Our deepest of sympathy is extended to both of you and your entire family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

  4. Every who knew Glynn will miss him greatly. I always had the utmost respect for Glynn. He achieved great things at the Spanish Peaks Ranch.He was a fair and gentle man. Our prayers are with his wife Maurine and all of Glynn’s family. Don, Jan, Chris, & Sonya Taylor.

  5. Maurine and all of Glynn’s children and grandchildren,
    Bob and I will always have some special and funny memories of Glynn. Our deepest condolences to all of you.
