He retired from the Navy and worked for 20 years for the U.S. Postal Service where he was held in high regard. Glenn retired in 1995, and he and Dimple returned to Georgiana to take care of their aging parents. Glenn’s greatest achievement was living a Godly and honorable life that set an example for his sons and grandchildren. He loved his wife Dimple, his sons, and daughters in law, and grandchildren with all his heart and made personal sacrifices all of his life to make sure that his family was taken care of.
