  1. Loren D. Rosenberry, Sr.
    My deepest sympathy to the Herbolsheimer family. As a young man I purchased my first car from Glenn when he was employed as a salesperson at Grant Chevrolet. My brother and dad also purchased several cars too. Grant Chevrolet would give the showroom floor a new coat of paint, move in the new model, and service coffee and donuts. Glenn will be missed, Loren.
  2. David Vesely
    Glen was a very outgoing person whom most of Scribner knew well and our class at Scribner especially since his brother Jerry was in our class. He will definitely be missed by family and friends.
