    I just came across this. I knew Glenn in the late 70s and 80s while he lived in California. We we’re co-workers at ‘The Deitch Group’, his first IT job predating McKesson. Aside from work we were bicycle and motorcycle riding buddies. Great times. I’ll miss you guy and thanks for it all.

    Buddy was my parents’ neighbor when I was a young boy in the early 70s. Sorry he passed suddenly. My condolences.
