All, I am sadden to learn of the death of your father. I have so many fond memories of Glen as I was growing up, that it is hard to pick one to mention. I specifically recall that Studebaker that he owned, with the pointed nose. I had never seen a car like that.
My prayers and thoughts are with you in this time of sadness.
Dear Maidl Family, My parents, Dennis and Shirley Schilling, sent this notice on to me and I wanted to extend my condolences. I have very fond memories of our neighborhood on 19th Avenue back in the 60s and 70s. It was a great place to grow up, and your parents were a big part of that experience. My thoughts are prayers are with you all and I hope that you hold many fond memories or your Dad. I know I do.
Sorry to hear of your loss. Last time I saw Glen was at a Minnesota
get together 15 years ago in the Phoenix area. My father, Sam
Dougherty of Kasson, Mn, was good friends with Glen.
So sorry to hear about the loss of Glen.
Glen had done business at my Farmers Insurance office for many many years.I enjoyed our many chats about family,golf and even a trout fishing trip he had with Charlie.He truely loved his family. Glen was a gentlemen.
So sorry for your loss. From what i observed over the years, your dad was a great father to you all.
