"For many years Glenn carted with the Pennine Carters and for the last few years with the
Midland Carters. Wendy and I only really got to know him once he joined us and found him
to be incredibly generous and kind but also not afraid to speak his mind.

"An electrician by trade, he helped Tim and Maggie with the electrics at Pimlico and was always
there with his caravan and dogs for the fund-raising events.

"After losing a leg during 2016 he spent the last few months of his life at a flat in Buckingham
where several of us visited him with our dogs and carts after participating in the Buckingham
Buckingham Christmas Carnival Parade in mid December.

"Recently he was re-admitted to hospital in Milton Keynes where he died on January 18th 2017.
One of his dogs, Gracie, had died not long before so he’s now been re-united with her.

"His funeral took place on February 3rd at the West Herts Crematorium and was very well
attended by both family, friends and carters with refreshments afterwards at a Rugby Club in
Hemel Hempstead at which Glenn was a regular visitor.

"As a consequence of Glenn’s love of Bernese the family asked for donations to Bernese Welfare 
in lieu of flowers, although the Midland Carters also provided a wreath  in the shape of a Swiss
Flag while Julie and Dave brought a posy of flowers in a small replica cart.

"We will be holding a final farewell celebration of Glenn’s life at the Whistley Woofers Weekend
over the late May Bank Holiday, at which all who knew Glenn will be welcome.

"Rest In Peace, Glenn, we’ll miss you."
