Donna & Walter Evans, June 19, 2021 I met Glynn when his brother and I were undergraduates at SFA. I got to know Glynn better when I returned to SFA in 1974-5. He and his friends allowed me to join them in their intramural team activities and made me feel welcome. I always enjoyed his dry, witty sense of humor punctuated by razor sharp one liners. He was one of the nicest guys I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. I am happy for him to have enjoyed so many years of golf and leisure time with his family after an early retirement. His family will be in our thoughts and prayers. Lee Appleberry and Tanya Tullos, June 19, 2021 Scott: My heart breaks for you and your family. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

Todd and Wanda McLane, June 19, 2021 I have shed a lot of tears reading Glynn's obituary I dearly loved him.. I have thought of him often since I retired from Dupont in 1993 I was a shift foreman when Glynn hired in and soon after he was on my shift He was by far the best hand I ever worked with. As far as I know in the fifteen or so years I worked with him I never heard him use a curse word or say an unkind word about anyone.. He was the same Glynn day in & day out He could have been promoted just by saying he wanted to be.. That was not Glynn. Next month I will be 86 years old and am looking forward to soon seeing Glynn. I am praying for all of Glynn's loved ones T o know Glynn you loved him Doug Young , June 18, 2021 Nita and family, we are saddened by the news of Glynn’s passing.
