Condolence Messages

  1. Glyn and I were hired around the same time as Human Resources Directors for DeVry University….Glyn for the Dallas campus and me for the Columbus, Ohio campus. Glyn was a great friend and trusted associate. I loved his great sense of humor, integrity, kindness and his complete honesty. We shared many wonderful moments together at our national meetings and our many phone calls to share experiences and solve HR issues. Glyn was a good man in every sense of the word and he will be missed. My condolences go out to his loving spouse Doris and his whole family.

  2. Laura Webb, LMSW, Providence Hospice

    I wish I had had the pleasure of spending more time with Glyn, for I thoroughly enjoyed talking with him. My heartfelt condolences to Doris, their daughters, and entire family.

  3. I worked with Glyn for many years when I was with DeVry. Glyn was such a sweet, dear man. I have many fond memories of our many conversations. My thoughts and prayers are with Doris and the whole family.

  4. I, too, would like to express my heartfelt condolences to Glyn’s family. I was saddened to hear of his passing. The funeral had already occurred or I would have attended. I worked at DeVry the entire time that he did; so I had a lot of contact with him. He was a special man.
