October 11 Teacher Assistant Married 2
What a wonderful website!  A friend told me to check this out and it's great.  High school seems like a life time ago.  At our age, maybe it is.  I'm living in Greenville, South Carolina, and love it.  We are north enough for a lot of leaf changing but not so much snow.  Perfect.  I have a wonderful husband, Ted, and two great kids (well, that would depend on the day and their moods--they are teenagers), a cat that fetches and a dog that won't.  Life is grand!

September 07, 1959 Military Married 4
Hiyas Class of 77,  I married Chery Howell (Class of 78), have 4 children David (III) 30, Matthew 26, Daniel 22, and Rachel 6.  Rach is about the same age as my oldest grandchild.  We have 5 grandchildren.  David (III) or Roy as we call him is a firemedic for the Pelham fire department,  Matt went to tech school for horticulture and works and a maintenance supervisor for Robert Trent Jones, and Danny is a senior in IT at Troy.  Chery is a ICU nurse at Prattville, and I've been full time or active duty with the Alabama National Guard for almost 25 years.  20 of those years were with the band as a trumpet player, but the last five have been in a personnel battalion.  I reluctantly left the band for a promotion and since my degree is in human resource mgt it made since.  I did one deployment for Iraqi Freedom in 2004 and when I came back they made me 1st Sergeant.  They wouldn't let me say no, so I went back again 2007-2008.  I was going to retire, but my resume is piling up with everyone elses in this economy, so I'm kind of in limbo.  Anyway, it's great to see all you guys on this site, and maybe I'll see ya soon.  Send David a MessageSend David a Message

I also rock climb in my spare time.  The pic is the summit of a climb at Windy Point on Mt. Lemmon about 30 miles from my home in Tucson, AZ.

(Deceased ~ Cancer) 

Remembering Glen by Cheryl Megorden...........
I had just moved to Montgomery from Germany and Lori Tilton (Class of 76) had just moved to Montgomery from Holland, so we became the best of friends.  Glen sat behind both of us in Study Hall and we kept admiring him via our mirrors in our Purses.  He caught us!!!  He ,of coarse, was flattered.  He then became our friend.  Lori moved away after she gradutated and Glen helped me through my Senior Year with alot of Strangers.  We tried to have a Romantic Relationship, but were better as friends.  On the weekends, after date nights with our Respective dates, he would drive by my house late at night, park his car up the street, and sit by my window for hours and we would talk about our lives, loves and failures. (I finally explained to my dad last month whose footprints those were...)  Glen would wait for me outside of my classes and walk me to other classes.   During the Senior Talent Show, Gosh that guy could "swoon" any woman with that voice.! In Auburn we would still make time to visit with each other.  After my divorce and moving back to Montgomery, I called Glen to help me move.  He always helped in any way that he could.   I always imagined that Glen and I would see each other again much later in life...at a Class Reunion...and would recall our lives since High School.
When Judy told me that he had passed away, I was speechless. I will always cherish our friendship and the whole page that he wrote to me in my yearbook.  He was always full of wisdom and insight into what it was all about...I will visit him the next time I am in Montgomery.  He is resting where my mother is....
My sincerest condolences also goes out to his Widow and two daughters.....

Remembering Glen by Debbie Daniel.....

I posted the memory picture of Glen.  I took the picture at a Christmas party in Dec ’03; the year before his lung surgery in Dec ’04.  I didn’t really know Glen (or his crowd) in high school.  We became friends while on the planning committee for the 20 year class reunion.  Then in 2000 I started working right next door to his office and we’d instant message constantly, meet outside to talk several times a day, have beers after work regularly and became like brother and sister.  Like Barry said, Glen inspired me like no one ever has.  I called on him for advice on EVERYTHING!  From men and relationships, how to handle house projects, car issues; more things than I can now remember.  Glen was so intelligent, so caring and SOOO handsome but none of that went to his head.  He was humble.  He loved his two girls more than anything and he really enjoyed his church (after constant asking I finally agreed to visit but it was toward the end and when I did go it was for his funeral; the biggest funeral I’ve ever been to!!).  I remember Glen complaining about the chest pains for a year (it seems) before he finally went to have it checked.  At the same time I was having some problems so I was going through some doc visits too.  It turned out that I had colon cancer and spent a week in the hospital for removal.  The week after I came home (recovering) Glen found out he had cancer.  So our fight began; together!  We were doing chemo treatments at the same time (different docs and locations) and we’d instant message or talk and encourage each other constantly.  We felt the same sickness and side effects and we’d share options to handle them.  But his was much harder treatments; he lost hair and I didn’t, he couldn’t eat and I could, etc.  Even when Glen was in the hospital during his last days, he was texting me on the phone.  I’ve saved his instant messages, emails and text messages and still have them today.  I’ve never had a brother like him since and I’ve missed his encouragement and advice so much!!  .  I’ve always felt it wasn’t fair that he suffered more than me.  And that he lost his fight and I didn’t.  But there is no doubt that Glen won the crown of heaven!!  His favorite passage was Jeremiah 29:11….. “For I know the plans I have for you”, declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”  That hangs on a wall in my house in remembrance of Glen and along with the tree I planted in my front yard when he died; I still feel his encouragement to me regularly.  GOD BLESSED ALL OF US WITH YOU GLEN!



Remembrance by BarryMask..........Probably no passing of a classmate hit me harder than Glen's , and for so many reasons. Glen and I were buds all through high school-only he was a lot cooler than me , and certainly knew how to charm and pursue the ladies . I still remember that cool MG spider sports convertible he had . I think there's a picture of it in our senior yearbook with Cathleen Myers on it.
   But it was music that bonded our friendship . Glen , Marion Eubanks and I had a little group that went around and sang at the  Tri- Hi Y's clubs, Anchor Clubs and key Clubs and any other event that wanted some average and very cheap entertainment . Later on Don Johnson , ( '78) joined us too . 
    Glen , Marion and Don all could sing and play the guitar , my only talent was singing ( though not too good) and doing impressions of Samuel Snifflesnort from   Young World ( rememeber that ? )
  But Glen was always encouraging me and always  invited me to the next "gig" and made sure I was "needed".
   When we both went to Auburn , we sort of got  seperated because I was doing the fraternity thing , etc. ...But it was a chance meeting one April afternoon at the War Eagle cafeteria  that Glen pumped me up and insisted that I try out for this "new mascot thing" -as he called it, that Auburn was starting called 
" Aubie"......Thanks to his encouragement and insistence , I did and the rest as they say is history . 
   To say he had a positive influence upon me would be an understatement . He saw something in me that I didin't really believe in myself - and he pushed me .
  We kept up thru the years after college and I was there when he met Julie , his wife and I attended their wedding at Chantilly . He was so happy .  He had two wonderful daughters in Amy and lauren.       I last talked to Glen around the Christmas Holidays before he died in April of '05 . ....I was working out of town alot for an engineering firm at the time so I was  regretfully saddened when I got the emeil from Julie he had gone to be with the Lord.  His funeral was a tribute and very touching , and I sat with Cathleen Myers , Janet Canon and Tim Redden ........Glen's passing in a strange way got me to reevaluate where my life was and where my priorities were .  Since then I have really gotten my ass in gear with my Faith , my wife and my commitment to civic activity in my community .  ....
So, Glen is still pushing me . 
Thanks Glen - we miss you !  Barry 

What Can I Say About Glen by John McLain

Glen and I knew each other since the middle of the third grade. I was a just returned GI Brat (from Germany) and started at Morningview in the middle of 3rd grade. One of the first people I met was Glen. He was in my class and we immediately became friends. Glen in those days was kind of shy and liked to keep to himself. For some reason we just hit it off and our friendship was born.

We continued our friendship through the 7th grade and then my parents moved and I had to go to Goodwyn in the 8th and 9th grades. We reunited at Lee and stayed friends throughout high school. I can still remember those Fridays in 12th grade when Glen and myself and some other crazy guys would slug down some Miller Ponys in the U parking area before opening class. We would walk into Mr. Brannan's class with a decnet buzz and the day was off to a great start.

After graduation Glen and myself both attended AU but Glen spent his first 2 years at AUM before coming to AU. We went through civil engineering together and graduated on the same day in June of 1982. I then moved to Florida and spent the next 15 years in P'cola. Glen and myself always kept in touch and on numerous occasions we talked about being in business together in our field of engineering. I finally moved back to Montgomery in 1998 and then in 2002 Glen invited me to become a partner in his business. When I became a partner, Glen and myself became closer that we had ever been. In the 3 short years before his death, we shared some great times at work and at play. I can remember vividly in Sept of 2004, the day he told most of us that he had been diagnosed with cancer. As usual Glen said let's go have a cold one. Glen told me he was going to beat this cancer and I just knew he would win the fight. Sadly though his body couldn't take anymore of the massive treatments and he passed on April 11, 2005. That night I cried like a baby. The only other time I have ever cried like a baby is when my Mom passed away in 2004. 

To this day I still wear a Livestrong Bracelet and will continue to do so until I can finally let go. I was sad but proud to be a pallbearer at his funeral and to this day I will always love Glen like a brother. Thanks for being my friend Glen and one day I will see you again.


R.I.P GLEN.  You are missed!
