Glendel had fought his sickness most of his life, but it would keep him down of doing the things he loved most, fighting Fires. He had been a volunteer fire fighter at many departments over the years, some being Carbondale Twp, Golconda and Dongola. He was also a true outdoors person, he loved to Hunt, fish and had uncanny ability to handle snakes. He was always a jokster and family made comment about the day of death being on April fool's day. Glendel could always light up a room and make people smile. He loved all of his family with his whole heart, his mother, sisters, and cousins so much. Even though he spent a short time here he left a huge impact and will be missed.
Glendell is survived by his mother, Patricia Peterson and 2 sisters, Peggy Endicott and Shantelle Latham, Nieces and Nephews, James and Ashley Hurst, Zane Foster and Chloe Baldwin, along with many cousins. He was preceded by his father in death.
