    Dear Sandee and Randy, Thank you both for making it possible to meet your Dad and spend time with him when I was searching for my cousins in Washington County. He was so much like his cousin, my grandfather James Clarence Bennett, even looked a good bit like him, and had that same quiet countenance, sincere caring, fine sense of humor, and kind heart. Even though we only met one time, I still think of you all with fond memories of our Thanksgiving together, the many stories that he told me about his life and his family, and how he enjoyed his home. God bless you all. Love, Judy

    My deepest feelings are with Sandee, Alan, and the rest of the family. I met “dad” several times while visiting during race week. He was a wonderful guy and I never felt like a stranger when we stopped at his home. Celebrate his wonderful life and he leaves some terrific people he influenced. The greatest testimony I can give is how much I know those close to him loved him.

    Sandee, We have never met but I have heard Glenn speak of both you and his son Randy many times. I was a young manager at ITT when Glenn worked for me in our Environmental Management program. He was an incredibly hard worker and was always trying to improve things. He provide me with a great deal of guidance and it uplifting just to be around him at work. I truly enjoyed being associated with him and I must tell you that Glenn played a large part in achieving several major Environmental Awards given to ITT by the EPA. He lived a long and honorable life. I know that you can be very proud of your Dad and we will all miss him. Regards, Bob Haines Naperville, IL
