Glenn is the last surviving member of the famous Attick clan who were well known for their sportsmanship and love of life.
Surviving are his wife, Dolores Geyer Attick; son and daughter in law Dr.Edward and Maureen Geyer; two grand- children; Nathan Geyer and Chelsea Zeiders-Knouse and husband Shay.
