(Engle) Fisher who preceded him in death. On June 11, 1971, he married Linda K. Brown at Holy Rosary Catholic Church, St. Marys, who survives.

After graduating from St. Marys Memorial High School in 1965 he received his Bachelor's Degree in Accounting from Wright State University. His career started at Howard Beeler CPA firm. He owned Lima Flack Company/Bobcat and retired in December of 2007. Glenn was a member and past president of Lima Noon SERTOMA, earning Sertoman of the Year in 1986-87.

He attended away games at nine out of ten original Big Ten stadiums as he was striving to visit them all.

He had a fondness for cars, especially his Shelby Cobra. He enjoyed spending time at his “Clubhouse" in Gomer, imparting his mechanical knowledge and life lessons to his grandchildren.

    Remembering Glenn with fond family memories at Thanksgiving and Easter. His love for family and his AC Cobra. His pride and joys. We haven't gotten together in a while but we will keep you all in prayer. Brian and Amy Bonham

    I remember being at the house when the kids were all still at home and Aunt Frankie telling one the boys had pulled on her (Glenn and Dean with ketchup on the face and she thought it was blood). That was probably sixty years ago. I was young and impressionable and looked for opportunities to emulate older cousins. I saw him a dozen years or so ago at The Creamery in Delphos. I was with a group of other pastors and asked if he was lost so far from home. He turned the comment back on me and had us all laughing.

    I am so saddened to hear of Glenn's untimely death. Glenn was a close friend and always a ray of sunshine to be around during our time at Memorial High School. Talking cars was always a favorite pastime. A most enjoyable outing with Glenn and Linda was to the Junior Prom with Glenn driving his 1958 Ford hardtop retractable, and me driving my parent's 1958 Chevrolet Impala with Connie and "slightly" exceeding the speed limit on I 75! I always enjoyed reminiscing with Glenn at our class reunions. He was a good man who will be greatly missed. My deepest sympathy to Linda and family

    Ecclesiastes 7:1 "A good reputation at the time of death is better than loving care at the time of birth." Glenn was a great guy. We enjoyed many years of gathering together with Glenn and Linda at Thanksgiving and Easter time. I remember when they were first married; they were a happy, cute couple and their only kid was a big schnauzer named Roscoe. They taught me to play Tripoli and it was loads of fun. My favorite memory was when a senior citizen (Doc) seated at the dinner table, knocked over his water goblet, just before saying prayer. Linda bounced out of her chair and efficiently took care of it. She got seated and everyone bowed for prayer again, only to have our 3 year old (Michael) knock over his water. Linda quickly rose, cleaned it up, situated herself and then started to laugh. All of us laughed long and hard. She may not have had the formal sit down dinner she had planned, but she and Glenn had a fun, relaxing one that day. Glenn and Linda always set a pleasant family atmosphere in the home while entertaining. Maybe that's one of the reasons we loved celebrating with them so much. Even though our families became unmanageable to gather around one table and home for the holidays, we will always have those many happy memories. Lynn Bonham Berna

    My deepest sympathies to Linda and the family! Glenn was such a caring, funny guy, with the greatest laugh and best jokes! Nobody could ever keep up with him on the road! He sold me my first car, that sweet mint green '78 Ford LTD and told me not to hit anything before I paid it off! But he let me make payments so that I could afford it. He will be greatly missed by the Billingsley Family!
