More recently, he lived in Isle of Palms and in Goose Creek, S.C. where he enjoyed spending time at the beach and traveling to the mountains. Glenn loved his family and was so pleased and often very amused to hear the antics of his three grandchildren. He was a loving and devoted husband and a very kind and gentle man. He was known as the "go to" for any friends and family experiencing any difficulty with their computers and his wife often found him in his study with computers broken down and all forms of testing equipment at hand. He loved a challenge and would work endlessly and all hours of the night until he was satisfied that his task was complete. He was an avid Penn State University sports fan. Glenn spent many of the last years of his life selflessly caring for others who were ill with cancer.
