Glen worked for the Lonoke County Road Department for 20 years. He loved his work and the people he worked with.
Glen had a deep religious conviction and very strong sense of family. He enjoyed fishing, hunting, and camping. He was a generous and loving son, husband, father, brother, uncle, and grandpa. It gave Glen pure joy to make others smile. Always ready with a joke to ease another’s pain or anxiety. His sense of humor was awesome. He will be missed by all who knew him.
The family would like to extend a special thank you to the team on 7E floor a UAMS. They are truly the warmest, kindest, and most compassionate people on earth. They gave Glen and the entire family comfort and love when we needed it most.
