Glenn was an exceptionally gentle brother and lifetime best friend. He was equally respected by friends and colleagues for his integrity and character. His passion for investigative journalism and research began in high school where he became a champion debater and editor. Glenn had other talents, too. We shared a love of classical music. He was first clarinetist in his high school orchestra and president of the Junior Etude Club. We enjoyed performing piano and clarinet duets together. We also took long bike trips together, an activity he still enjoyed until just recently. As adults, we seemed to agree on everything, but you could always learn so much from Glenn concerning every aspect of political and social life in New York City where we both lived for the bulk of our lives.
The field of politics was his real passion, and as many know, Glenn was a workaholic.
I loved reading quotes from his reports in the New York newspapers. Glenn could occasionally surprise you, and gave me the ride of my life as a mad NYC cab driver, a summer job he held while attending law school. Glenn began his professional career with Legal Aid in NYC and focused on progressive politics, working with State Senator Franz Leichter, and later with the Public Advocate, Mark Greene, with the Brooklyn Borough President, Marty Markowitz, the State Comptroller’s Office, and the Trial Lawyers’ Association. His other equally important role was that of a loving husband and a nurturing father.
Glenn, we love you so much. We are going to miss you so much! You were so sweet, and so devoted to your family, and such a good friend to me and Howard. And so strong! I can't believe the four of us just did a 10 mile ride together this past October on Long Island.
To Margaret, Claudia, and all of Glenn's family and friends, you have our deepest sympathy. Our hearts ache with this loss.
What a guy. What a wonderful friend.
He fought so hard with such bravery and I am very proud of him....It was a great honor to be part of Glenn’s care and he wont be forgotten...!
