Dear Norma and family: Glen’s passing is a great loss for me. He was truly a good man. He was my very great friend, supervisor, golfing partner and career protector. I have good memories of early morning golfing and the our Saturday collaboration on business projects. I will treasure all of the memories. Bob and Georgia Sonnichsen

Dear Norma and Family, please accept my sincere condolences for the loss of Glen. He was the single biggest influence in my life and I became better because of it. He was a leader in every since of the word, his integrity, vision and guidance, at times stiff guidance, we’re the very reasons for the tremendous success of Silent Watchman. He assembled the team, gave us the picture and set the pace. And above all, you knew he had your back.
A wonderful man that we will all miss greatly, but I am sure glad I got to know him.

Glen was one of the finest people I have ever known and my life was all the better for knowing him. He’ll be remembered by many people for his integrity and professionalism and he’ll remain in my prayer queue.

Glen was one of the “rocks” that I could depend on. He helped mold me in my career and showed how to build a team by his unwavering vision and positive example, and he always offered positive guidance when needed -sometimes when you didn’t even want it!
His friendship will be missed.
I hope Norma can find some solace in these trying times and she and Glen will be always in our prayers
Mike & Emily Lynch
