  1. Condolences to our colleague Glenn Jr. and family. Meriden-Wallingford Black Professionals, Business Owners and Clergy.

  2. Glenn Sr was a wonderful man, and very proud of his family. He always had a smile and a little glimmer in his eye! I’ll miss seeing him at Dunkin Donuts. Glenn Jr–remember you have a family to lean on at the PD. We’re here for you.

  3. I met .Pops. when I was 16 and working at Dunkin Donuts. He would stay and wait while I closed the store. That was almost 20 years ago. When I stopped working there and would see his truck, I would always stop and say hello. My heart and prayers go out to his family. Glenn will be missed by many in Meriden.

  4. I met Glenn when i worked at food bag. I worked at food bag for over 10 years and Glenn was one of the customers i missed. I would see his truck there and stop. My daughter who is 5 would be with me and want and want. I would tell her no. When i turn around she would have her powerade and candy. Ask her where she got that she would reply with Grandpa Glenn. Glenn always could make people laugh and bring a smile to their face. I remember telling Glenn i never wanted kids and he would tell me all about his kids and his grandkids and telling me ill change my mind. So when I found out i was pregnant and saw him at food bag. All he could say is told you so. He was a sweet man loved by many and will be missed by many. Glenn you will always be remembered and will be deeply missed. To all his family my prayers and my thoughts are with you.

  5. My condolences to Glenn and his family. I have known Glenn for almost 20 years now. Glenn is a wonderful person who deeply touches the lives of everyone he meets. He is the best friend anyone could ever ask for.
