Glen was Lodge Adviser for Ouxouiga Lodge 264 and
a member of Troop 10 of the First United Methodist Church in Alexandria, LA
where he had earned his Eagle rank. He was 25 years old. He was a
Vigil Member and former Lodge Chief for Ouxouiga Lodge. He had been Camp
Director for Camp Attakapas summer and winter camps in recent years. Last
year he received the District Award of Merit. He was honored with the
Silver Beaver at the Council Banquet in February.
As a youth, he was the first member of the Alexandria, Louisiana Police Explorer Post. He became a City Marshall following high school on the condition that he also attend college. Glen was to graduate from Northwestern State University in May.
Glen was killed in the line of duty as a Deputy
City Marshall. There will never be a replacement for his spirit and work
ethic, but we can try and live up to the high standards he knew we could master.
We must rise to the occasion, and fulfill our potential, that which Glen worked
so hard on a daily basis to let us achieve
