Glen often spoke of John 21:17, The third time he said to him, "Simon son of John, do you love me? "Peter was hurt because Jesus asked him the third time. "Do you love me?" He said, "Lord, you know all things; you know that I love you." Jesus said, "Feed my sheep." Glen took to heart the commands of Jesus and served the community throughout his life in many ways, including through his role as a Board Member of the Camp County Museum, East Texas State University and Texas A&M-Commerce, and as a member and former President of the Highland Park United Methodist Mens Fellowship as well as a Trustee for Reeves Chapel United Methodist Church to name a few.
