Glenn enjoyed spending time at the beach, surfing and watching his children lifeguard in Seaside Park and going to concerts with Theresa and their many friends. Glenn and Theresa were avid runners and enjoyed a healthy outdoor lifestyle. He loved traveling to watch his children play sports. Glenn took special pleasure in watching his daughter Jillian grow up into a smart and beautiful young woman. Glenn and Ethan enjoyed traveling for swimming and lacrosse, where they made wonderful memories. He shared a common love of animals with Theresa, Jillian and Ethan and they spent many hours enjoying their fur family; Leonard, Grandpa, Finny and Bruno. One of his favorite pastimes was making sure he had the best lawn and landscape in the neighborhood. He was a favorite uncle to all of his nieces and nephews and loved to spend time with his large extended family and friends. He was always quick to flash his famous smile and tell you a story.
