We ere saddened to read of Glenn’s passing. He was a good man and will be greatly missed. I was Manager of the First Citizens Bank at Quail Corners from 1975 – l983 and we enjoyed talking about golf although we never played together.

Condolences to Don’s family & friends. I worked with him at the VA I hadn’t seen him in years, but remember how enjoyable he was & was sad when he retired. He was so talented and helpful when his art expertise was needed. God bless & comfort you.
