Lucas Glidden
Lucas Jeffrey Glidden of Redding, CT, crossed over on Thursday, March 29, 2018. We imagine that he is safe and at peace in the company of the loved ones who went before him, and especially his beloved Leila. Luke's loving family would like to honor his legacy with a scholarship for future recipients of the Joel Barlow Boy's Volleyball Coach's Award; an award Luke was given his senior year on the team. The Award was very meaningful for Luke by acknowledging his place as a pillar of spirit and support for the team.
A Memorial Service and visiting hours will be held at the Commerce Hill Funeral Home, 4798 Main St. in Bridgeport, from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday, April 6, 2018. In lieu of flowers, friends and family are invited to donate to Luke's scholarship fund in the form of cash or check, to be accepted at the service or mailed to Joel Barlow High School, 100 Black Rock Tpke., Redding, CT 06896. Kindly address checks to "Joel Barlow High School" and please include "Luke Glidden Memorial Fund" in the memo. For online condolences, to light a virtual candle and make a donation visit us at

Im sorry to hear about the loss of your beloved son Luke, Sarah. I never met him personally but I'm sure that he was an upstanding man and good person since you were his mom. I hope you and the rest of your family find peace and comfort in these trying times. If I could have traded my life for his I would have, for you. God bless you all...

I was very saddened to hear about Luke. I have some great memories of Luke on basketball trips with Trevor and other friends. He was very funny and loved to goof around in the car. I hope your family memories give you some comfort.
