    Glenn was a great guy and teacher who gave countless young musicians their start in music. I always enjoyed working with him at St. Mike's in Orland and exchanging stupid jokes with him. He really enjoyed teaching and helping young people, never complaining. I'll miss him and mourn his passing at too early an age. Blessings and prayers, Glenn, my friend.

    Glenn was a very special person and teacher.  I had the pleasure of working together with him for decades and he was always so caring and loved by his students and their families.  He taught me a lot about Music Education and will always be remembered for his dedication to his schools and sharing his love of Music with his students. We will miss him dearly.

    Mr. Pawlak was a great man.  As a student of his at St. Joe's, he taught so much more than music.  I often think of those lessons...patience, passion, hard work, leadership...too many to count...and I am grateful and privileged to have experienced his guiding hand.  Thank you Mr. Pawlak for leading by example.

    My condolences to Glenn's family, friends and loved ones.  Glenn was a great guy and a terrific musician.  He really could play that horn in the Fenger High Band.

    Dear Sue & family, Glenn was one of my best friend's at Fenger High School. We had such fun in Band! He was always the one to goto for the correct note/key & to get a laugh. Although I haven't seen him since 1970 I have always thought of him with a smile. I will remember him that same way now that's he's with God making music for Him. My condolences to you.

    Condolences to Sue and the entire family. Glenn was a great guy and a great trumpet player. I sat next to him in band for 3 years and we became the best of friends. Those days were special and I'll always think of Glenn when remembering them. God Bless the entire family and may he rest in peace.

    As a former student of St. Michael's, I was a member of the band where he conducted. He was so funny, had a great memory and just made you feel really special. May he rest in peace with all of instruments in his hands!
