The Lincoln Park Summer Camp in the mid-1960s was also my earliest memory of Mr. Moore. He once led the campers on a walk through the woods above Mountain Heights Avenue to a day out at the old Alpine House, a real treat for kids in those days, most of whom didn't have access to a pool. Another time he organized a limbo contest in, of all places, the Board Room of the old LP Borough Hall.

Glen would later become my Sunday School teacher at the First Reformed Church, to which he was so devoted. And for several summers he drove Rob Rosner, Mark Mac Intyre, and me home each day to Lincoln Park, after he was done teaching tennis lessons at Boonton High School. During those rides, Glenn would regale the three of us with stories of his wartime service in the Marines and so many other valuable life lessons, as we sat crammed in the backseat of his Volkswagen Beetle (and later a Karmen Ghia). We learned more during those rides than at any other time in our lives.

Long before self-help gurus became so popular, Glenn taught kids the four Hs: Honesty, Humility, Hustle and ? Sorry Glenn but I always had trouble remembering that last H.
Rest in Peace Coach, you're already sorely missed.

My first vivid memory of Glenn Moore has to be from about 1964-65. I attended a summer day camp at Chapel Hill School, about 200 yards from my house on Terrace Parkway. It seemed like a big adventure at the time.

Glenn was one of the counselors at the camp and if I close my eyes I can still see and hear him, clapping wildly and leading all us kids in a rousing chorus of "Mean Old Dunderback and his Sausage Meat Machine"...it's a real camp song! Google it!

Little did I know that this clearly crazy guy, with his signature baseball cap & whistle, would be a tennis & life coach, a true hero and would help shape my life's direction for the next 40 years!

Through his tireless dedication to the community, his church, Boonton High School and a myriad other contributions, Glenn Moore will remain the "gold standard" of relentless optimism, tenacity and unshakeable faith. And this was all AFTER he'd served bravely with the 6th Marines as a mortarman on Okinawa. To emerge from that horror with such enthusiasm, compassion, kindness and grace is truly a divine gift!

Mr. Moore, I can never thank you enough and I will ALWAYS look up to you. You have left an immutable legacy of love.

I am enourmously saddned to hear about the passing of Glenn...When my former wife Linda and myself were married in 1978, we settled in Lincoln Park and became involved with the First Reformed Church...among the very first people we met were Claire and Glenn, and well, the rest is history...I cannot not say enough about Glenn's kindness towards us ( Claire's also) and how they both made us feel so welcome...I enjoyed the many stories that Glenn told and how his enthusiasm for life was like no other...I never heard him speak a mean word...My memories of lincoln Park, NJ will be forever cherished in my heart because of who Glenn was..He was a true treasure, and it was an honor to know him...His memory will live in my heart forever...Claire, you had a gem of a husband, and how fortunate his children are to have had such a terrific man to call dad...May The grace of God be with him alway.

Mr Moore was a tremendous influence in my life and in the lives of thousands of Boonton students. He taught us, coached us, mentored us, and delighted in our achievements. A life very well lived.
