    Rest In Peace Denny!

    We have many good memories of Denny from the 70’s when he helped build our grain facility. He made it happen and the rest of us just pitched in. My favorite saying was his greeting of me each day “Morning Glory!” I still say that to friends of mine and think of him when I do. A very fine man to work with. He enjoyed life. God Bless you Denny and the rest of your family.

    Eber Morgan II worked with a Lester Gleason at Delco in Kokomo. Lester moved to KY to work at the GMC plant in Bowling Green. If this is the correct Lester Gleason, Eber II wanted him to know he was so sorry to hear of his father’s death and sends his condolences.

    I have been friends with Joseph Gleason for around 25 years and I hate to hear of his loss. Prayers go to the whole family.
