BENNINGTON -- Mr. Glenn F. Walk, 66, a resident of Harbour Road, died peacefully at his home on Thursday Dec. 30, 2004.

Born in Bennington on Aug. 5, 1938, he was one of two boys born to Ralph and Marion (Kendall) Walk. Growing up in Bennington, he attended local schools and was a 1955 graduate of Bennington High School. Shortly after high school, he entered the United States Air Force where he served for 20 years, retiring in 1975. While serving during the Vietnam war, his plane was shot down in Cambodia. He recovered from his injuries and continued his military career.

Following his military career upon returning to Bennington, he drove for Merrill Transport for a short time, he then began working at the Vermont Veterans Home as a nurse’s aid and fire marshall of the property, retiring in 1995 after 20 years of service.

Mr. Walk enjoyed the out of doors, shooting his guns and fishing. He especially enjoyed the company of his dog, Tramp, which gave him much happiness following the loss of his wife.

He leaves his mother, Marion Walk of Bennington; a daughter and her husband, Kim and Keith Hassenpflug of Cheshire, Mass.; a son and his wife, Kevin and Kathy Walk of Adams, Mass.; a brother Gary Walk of Bennington; and four grandchildren, Jenny Hassenpflug, Ryan Walk, Christopher McCarron and Amber Smith.

A service of remembrance will be held on Monday, Jan. 3, 2005, at 2 p.m. at the Hanson-Walbridge Funeral Home with the Rev. Norma Drosky, pastor of the First Baptist Church of Bennington, officiating. Burial with military honors will follow in the Walk family lot in Oak Hill Cemetery in Pownal.
