My memories of Glen go back to my childhood days when he and Rosie, Gary, Andy and Evie would come to visit my mom (Aunt Audrey) and our family in Baraboo. Glen was always upbeat and had a smile for you and always made your day better. My mom loved Glen and always kept us up to date as to what he and the kids were up to. He was a fixture at the Davis family reunions and always one of my favorites there. He was always thoughtful of my mom and regularly visited her in her later years, of which our family is extremely grateful for. You can tell that Glen’s life was all about leadership and service to others. The world would be such a different place if all men where like Glen-May God Bless him in His care.

I am so sorry to hear of Glen’s passing. He was a wonderful man who always had a smile on his face, and joy in his heart. I know he will be missed terribly by all of you, and that family was very important to him. He will be missed as well by his Davis cousins. God Bless you all as you maneuver through these new days without him.

We are sorry to hear of Glens passing. I am one of his daughters of 1995, Grand Warder. We will not be there for services. We are in assisted living home and can’t travel that far. Our prayers are with Glen’s family. God’s blessings.
