    Thinking of you all during this difficult time. We are all so glad we got to see him and spend some time with everyone at the wedding. He treated me just like one of his kids when I was around and reminded me very much of my own dad. We wish that we could be with you over the new few days, but know that you will be in good hands with the local friends and family. In loving memory of Grandpa Glen.

    Very sorry to learn of Glen’s death. I did not know Glen before this year, but spent a very enjoyable week-long fishing trip with him. He gave every indication of being a very fine man. Although I will not be able to attend either the visitation or the funeral, I did want to send my thoughts and prayers to each member of his family.

  12. Bernie & Barb Dunnewold December 21, 2015 at 8:47 pm

  16. Mark & Dorothy Thise December 22, 2015 at 9:04 am

    We want to extend our deepest condolences and sympathies to Ruth and the whole Lock family. Glen was my coach and teacher in high school. Later in life we resumed our relationship and found out we had a lot of like beliefs. Glen was extremely well read and I learned a lot from him in numerous discussions on a myriad of topics. Glen was a good man will be missed for sure but never will be forgotten. Our prayers are with him and his family. God bless him and may he rest in peace.

  17. Mike and Cathy Shelton December 22, 2015 at 10:10 am

    Cathy and I want to extend our deepest sympathies to Ruth and the family. I remember as a young agent starting in 1975 Glen came up to me in a meeting and said if you need anything or just want to talk my door is always open. That meant so much to me to welcome me into the group and I always have remembered that and tried to pay it forward with other new agents. Our offices were pretty close to each other and Glen would stop into the office now and then and say hi and how are you doing, 40 years later Glen would still stop and we would visit I will miss those visits. Glen was a good agent and good friend, he will be missed and never forgotten, our thoughts and prays go to Ruth and Family.

  18. The Waterman family December 22, 2015 at 10:54 am

    Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you as you mourn your loss. Hope you find comfort and strength in celebrating his life and how he touched the hearts of so many people.

    Remembering the days on Kickapoo Dr. Glen always being sure the kids were safe from speeding drivers. Great neighbors. Simpler times. Rest in peace, Glen and go fishing with the Lord.

    Our prayers and sympathy go out to the Lock family. Glen and Ruth were good friends of ours after graduating from Purdue and we had many good times together. It seems like yesterday–time flies by so fast. It is never easy to let a loved one go and yet we know that eternal peace is now Glen’s dwelling place. We know that Glen will be missed greatly by all. We will continue to hold you up in our prayers.

    Dear Ruth & Family,
    My heartfelt sympathy to you & Denise & all… Glen was such a blessing to so many that he served & of course to his family & friends… I didn’t know about the CC teaching as I must have graduated in the spring of “63 before he came in the fall… Please know you are in so many thoughts & prayers and I can say we uniquely have been praying for him & you all in the water at the Y… It’s a visual 🙂 You have many friends in that Y-water class and in Extension Homemakers… We are here when you need us & will continue praying during this sad time…
    Love & God Bless, Suilon & Y-Water Angels (Named so by Nancy Kinsler), Sandy, Marilyn, Rae, etc. & CCEH Wellness Club

    It is with great sadness to hear of the passing of Glenn — I first met him about 1970 or so; liked him right away. He has been my State Farm agent since that time. Always loved talking with him. So many of us will miss him. Our condolences to his family and friends. We have lost a good one!

    Dear Ruth and children,

    So very sorry to learn of your loss. I worked with Glen at State Farm on South Street a long long time ago. Glen was such a bright light in the office and I enjoyed working with him. We moved away but whenever we were in Lafayette, we stopped in to visit with Glen at his new office. You have many wonderful memories and these will carry you through this difficult time. He loved all of you very much and spoke often of you.

    Sincerely, Bonnie and Ed Calhoun
