To Glen’s family and friends, We worked with Glen on his migration project from New York. He was always the best to work with, both in humor and brilliance. We were especially happy to have him visit us and show him around New York. Whether computers, music or family, Glen always had something great to contribute. I’m sure you will miss him as will we at ExperSolve. God bless you all, Noah Ross, President, ExperSolve Inc.

To Glen’s family and friends, I am so sorry for your loss. I work with Glen at YRC Freight, he always had a smile on his face whenever we talked. He was a wonderful person and co-worker and he will be missed. Lisa Rosa

I became acquainted with Glen only in the past few years. I was not fortunate enough to meet his family and never heard his music. However, I did recognize Glen as being imbued with intelligence, grace and humility and I will miss him greatly.

Glen was such a fun loving goofy guy who loved his family and God very much. I feel like we were very lucky to have gotten to know him for even the short period of time that we did. He will be greatly missed but know that one day we will see him again. Brandon, Mallorie, and Britton Bean

What a gift from God your family was given in Glen. We are deeply sorry for your loss and pain. We know our Faithful Lord is close to the brokenhearted and we pray “The Lord himself will lead you and be with you. He will not fail you or abandon you, so do not lose courage or be afraid.” (Deuteronomy 31:8). My husband and I were blessed to work with and know Glen at YRC Freight for many years. As our brother-in-Christ, he will be dearly missed for now but we will rejoice again with him some day.

Heb 13:25 “May God’s Grace be with you all.” NLT So sorry for your loss, but as we know our loss is God’s gain. It is with great respect and admiration that I say I know that “Son” was an amazing man who loved his family and his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ with all his heart and revealed it in the way he lived his life.

In the four years I’ve worked with Glen, he was always professional, pleasant, and happy to help with whatever he could. In all of that time, I never heard him say anything unkind to or about anyone. The song says “And they will know we are Christians by our love” Glen certainly was a shining light and he will be sorely missed.

I had only known Glen for a short time while working at YRC Freight; however, he was most certainly a bright, shiny star and will be dearly missed. Such a kind soul and wonder spirit he is. To the family, I am so very sorry for your loss. May God bless and keep you within his wings for now and always.

Steve and I love Glen and Stacey. They have been wonderful friends to us. He was a good Christian man who loved the Lord and his family. He was always kind. He loved to play the drums and loved to joke and laugh. He always found the good in people. We will miss him very much!

I only knew Glen while helping conduct his father’s funeral, but will always remember the kindness and gentle spirit he had. It was such an emotional time and yet he was always so very nice. I hope Glen has found peace in Heaven and Stacie I will keep you in my prayers.

I have worked with Glen in YRC for the past seven years, and have been actively getting in touch with him for past 3 years. And now I could not believe that he is no more. He is a great human who always used to be very kind and affectionate. He used to help me a lot with my work. Its hard to forget Glen who taught me so much… Feel like crying out of sorrow… Miss you Glen. REST IN PEACE.

My thoughts and prayers are with all of Glen’s family at his sudden passing. Stacie, I’m so sorry for your loss. I will continue to keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

I was fortunate to work with Glen for several years at YRC Freight. Glen was a highly respected colleague and a true friend. I will remember Glen for many things. I will remember Glen for living life to the fullest in his many pursuits and achievements, his devotion to family and faith, his countless acts of kindness. Glen exuded all that was positive and good in the way he treated people – he was an enthusiastically kind and generous person. If there was anything I or anyone ever needed, Glen was there to sincerely offer it up. Glen will greatly be missed. To the family, Please remember our thoughts are with you through this and beyond.

In the midst of many late night war room conference calls at YRC, Glen was always a positive light and positive influence in an otherwise negative situation. As a fellow Christian I look forward to seeing him again some day! Matthew 25:21 surely applies to Glen. My prayers go out to the family.

My husband Bryan and I knew Glen through Sophia and Glen’s sons. Glen was someone who always could put a smile on your face and make you laugh. We were so sad to hear the news and began talking about memories we had of him. My husband had helped redo Glen and Stacie’s roof many years ago. Not long after, they invited us over for a superbowl party. When we walked in, Glen had placed pots and bowls all over the floor. He exclaimed, “Our roof is leaking so much!! I dont know who “fixed” this roof, but I need to call them!!!” He was always making jokes and was such a fun person to be around. It was obvious how much he loved his family and he set a great example of talking about the Lord and His love. Prayers to all during this difficult time.

Glen was the very definition of a good guy. I miss him, but I know that his family, of whom he spoke very often and with love and fondness, will miss him dearly. My love goes out to you.

OH LORD, OUR LORD, How Majestic is Your Name in All the Earth! Psalm8:1 Father in Heaven, we praise and thank You for the dear life of Your servant and our brother and friend Glen O’Neal Jr. He was with us for such a short time as life is a vapors, here one moment, and gone the next. James 4:14 Your ways are higher than our ways Oh God and Your thoughts are much greater than ours. Isaiah 55:9. Lord we give You the glory for Glen and we miss him dearly and look forward to the Day approaching we see him again! Until then keep his family and loved ones in Your safe keeping! In Jesus Name and for Yiur glory, Amen. Jeff Pollard and family

Life is but a vapor. The only thing that matters is what we do for Jesus. Glen ran the good race. My prayers for his family and friends.
