Glen and I had talked of our family history several times - the Magouyrk Family. He had always seemed more than helpful in my search of ancesters - my grandfather and his grandmother were siblings traveling from Alabama to Arkansas with their parents in the 1870s. May he rest in peace.

Glenn was a life-long advocate of Native youth engagement in trail activities and education programs. Glenn recruited me to the Trail of Tears Association and cheerfully greeted me at each meeting and program. He was also a fierce advocate for preserving local history in Lowell and Northwest Arkansas. Glenn was a dear friend and mentor. I will miss him forever but commit to continue his legacy by engaging in the efforts Glenn held so dear. Love you my friend!! See you in heaven!

Glenn was a man among men, committed to service, an amazing colleague for decades, and someone I admired. His work with NWA museums won't be forgotten. I miss you already, Glenn.
