Glenn touched many lives and created so many memories that his daughters will cherish forever, especially during their childhood when he took them on many outdoor adventures. He had an adoration for his granddaughters that will never be broken. He made it a priority to always be with his family for birthdays and holidays. He loved to cook, enjoyed watching sports and was a huge fan of the Portland Trail Blazers (even when they “stank”) and the Cincinnati Reds, and was glued to his iPad regarding the news. The memories he made will be treasured forever and he will be deeply missed.
He is survived by Peggy Ruth and their three Daughters Anika Djordjic nickname “Mookie'' (Goran) of Chicago Illinois, Kiara Ruth-Hale nickname “Bunny” and Kalea Ruth-Hale nickname “Baby” both of Austin Texas.
