We extend sincere sympathy to the family of Glenn Nixon, who passed away on Oct. 19 at the age of 91 years. Our thoughts are with his wife Isabel and their children Glenna, Gloria, Jack, Maryann, Darlene and Gary and their families as well as his brother Dave (Betty) Nixon and twin sisters Amy (Frank) Bates and Alice Clayton, other relatives and friends.
