Here's sending our deepest sympathy to all of Glen's family, especially Jean (wife) and Wayne (brother). We (Kathy Lillie & Mimi Christensen) have known Glen since 4th & 7th grades and proudly share the banner of Green Bay West Classmates of '57. What great fun we had together in school and then renewing that fun and friendship at the reunions. Our last high school reunion was our 50th, and we were honored to break bread together at the same table with Glen & Jean at Brett Favre's Steakhouse. Glen will forever be loved and missed by those of us who have known him over these many years, and for that we are most grateful. May God continue to bless us all, everyone! Kathie (Lil) Vinnes & Mimi McClure Green Bay West High School Class of '57

Jean, Having just learned of Glen's death, my heart grieves with yours. Someone has said, "The star of hope is still in the sky when the night is the darkest." I'm praying for you and your family; may you fix your eyes on the promises of Jesus Christ who has provided for us eternal life--and a grand reunion with our loved ones some glorious day. His love, Karen
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Dear LaFrombois family, It is with sadness that I heard the news that Mr. LaFrombois had passed away. I went to Appleton West in the early Seventies and I will always remember Mr. LaFrombois as someone who could really relate to the students. Mr. LaFrombois would sometimes hang out with us "car guys" at the Winnebago St. entrance to the school over the lunch hour. It was always a hoot to watch students and a few notorious alumni (a black 71 Super Bee pilot comes to mind) doing burnouts on Winnebago. Mr. LaFrombois pretended to disapprove but I knew he was enjoying the show as much as we were. I was also impressed that Mr. LaFrombois drove a 59 Impala convertible...a cool and already old car in the early seventies. Mr. LaFrombois — you were a talented educator and a great Appleton West Terror — thank you. Tony Hossain

I am so sorry for your loss. I had Glen in High School at Appleton. He was my best teacher I ever had in my high school years. I have told him that several times after I graduated when I would see him at Prange Way. When I read his obit and he said he has never met a Terror he didn't like , well Glen I will come back to you with : there is no Terror that didn't think the world of you and you are the best teacher. God bless your family and hope peace finds you soon.

Dear Jean and family, Joanne called me with the shocking news of Glen's passing. It is so hard to make it seem real. I know that he has had health problems for many years, but it is still a shock when it happens so quickly. The comfort is in knowing he is with Jesus in a happier place. We are praying for God to be with you and giving you special strength only He can give. Love, Barbara & Dennis Damrau

Jean and I wish to express our sincere condolences. Glen was a great help to me as I navigated a new school and helped to guide many of us through tough times. I was honored to support him in his quest to be considered for the Mielke Educator Award. Glen will be missed by many people. Godspeed my friend.
Father Tim Shillcox left a message on November 2, 2010:
Glen was my high school guidance counselor at West 69-72. We were also both at Prange's along the way - I was a stock boy there. You're right very rewarding, very decent people there! He was encouraging, interested and sincerely helpful - yes...through some turbulent times in the '70's. I'm very grateful for his positive impact on my life and his good example to us as high school kids. My sympathy to you who are his family and my prayers for his Eternal reward from the 'Great Teacher'. I offered the Mass for him this morning at St Joe's Middle School in Appleton. God bless and guide you all through this time! Fr Tim Shillcox,O.Praem AHS-West '72
