Remembering Glenn Brenner

Glenn Brenner

I first met Glenn Brenner in 1979 at my college job fair. He was the keynote speaker. Glenn started to speak and said screw it, what do you guys want to know? He then took questions for an hour.

Glenn died in 1992 at age 44 of a brain tumor. It was so sad. I crossed paths with Glenn often, including one time when he came flying over a sand dune at a golf course driving a cart like a lunatic and laughing as we scrambled. Anyone who knew Glenn has 10 funny stories.

Glenn is buried in Oak Hill Cemetery in Georgetown. It’s a historic hilly cemetery filled with many Civil War notables, including Abe Lincoln’s right-hand man Edwin Stanton whose marker is steps from Glenn’s grave.

RIP Glenn. Everyone still misses you.
