He served as the former mayor of Norbourne Estates, Executive Director of St. Matthews Chamber of Commerce, and as the Real Estate Broker for Insuramax Realty. Glenn enjoyed many years of coaching at St. Matthews Little League and Our Lady of Lourdes, and was an avid U of L fan. He was an outgoing man, who never met a stranger, and would go the extra mile for anyone he met. He could brighten any room with his smile and personality.
