Glenn and Sandy were avid travelers having visited all 7 continents and 50 states. They also enjoyed happy times with family and friends in Pismo Beach and Palm Springs. Glenn had many other interests, top among them, UCLA sports, golf, birding, flying (he was a licensed pilot), reading a good book in the sun, a glass of wine while enjoying a beautiful sunset, and his precious dog Lily. Glenn loved life and had a strong will to live. He showed great courage in his long, hard battle with myelodysplasia. His family will be forever grateful for the dedicated and compassionate care shown by his medical team and caregivers. Glenn was cremated and a celebration of his life will be held in July.
