Glenn passed away on May 4th after a valiant two year battle with liver cancer. He is survived by parents John and Mary Atoigue, son Phillip (Noe), and grandson Keanu Phillip Glenn Atoigue of Hawaii, also brothers Gregory (Isabel) and Gilbert Atoigue of San Leandro. He was born in Oakland, California and graduated from San Leandro High School in 1973. He proudly served in US Army Security Div. as radio operator and code breaker, US Army Reserve (1976) and US Army National Guard (1980-1985). He was an active member of the Honolulu Federal Fire Department until his retirement in 1996. After retiring he became interested in mental health care. He worked with HIS (Institute for Human Services) and Kahi Mohala Psychiatric Hospital in Hawaii. When he returned to the mainland, he worked with mentally challenged youth for organizations such as Stars Adolescent Center, San Leandro, Community Options in Oakland and Youth Empowerment in Hayward, CA. He greatly admired the work done by the St. Vincent de Paul Society and often involved his youth with community service at the Oakland Food Kitchen. Glenn loved to read, loved to cook and loved everything Hawaiian. We give abundant thanks and gratitude to his special friend Kathy Yamamoto and friends and staff at Veterans Administration, Menlo Park and Treasure Island.
