Story

[p]Last year the world lost a great person, a true friend and wonderful human being. I was given the greatest honour speaking at Glen's funeral and I think the words delivered that day best tell the story of the man who inspires me daily and will drive me on every step on the 52.4 miles of Manchester and London.[/p][p]When I asked all our friends for memories and thoughts of Glen there was a common theme; [/p][p]Inappropriate is probably appropriate.[/p][p]I am going to try, as a spokesperson for so many that loved him, to convey just few memories, thoughts and phrases that make me smile and think of Glenny: [/p][p] [/p][p]A complete social hand grenade.[/p][p]The person most able to turn something sublime into something utterly ridiculous.[/p][p]A spontaneous **** who enjoyed doing random stuff for the sake of nothing more than having fun.[/p][p] [/p][p]As a boy, even at Nursery was as wilful as ever, making his rainbows triangular just because![/p][p]As member of the “3 Musketeers” or the “three brass monkeys” depending on which parent you asked… Glen Dave and Miles would break into each other’s houses when locked out, and invariably come up with games to risk their lives, Glen’s favourite being called lawn darts…..which by all accounts is a game of chicken involving said darts… [/p][p]No one has ever…….. fallen into the Pond at Miles' house more than Glen.[/p][p]Glen was always the most explorative, [/p][p]going the furthest on his bike, pushing the boundaries of where he was allowed to be, I'm sure he told me he once got arrested cycling down the M4…..He was the first to watch the scariest films and of course…was the first to try alcohol.[/p][p]Even when young he was fiercely defensive of his friends, stubborn as all hell and one of the cheekiest **** you’ll find. [/p][p]Nothing really ever changed…[/p][p] [/p][p]He is, without doubt, the most erratic golfer I’ve ever seen, and the only person I know to have got an albatross………. As he would say, having just thrown his 6 iron into a tree at Farnham park …Random random random![/p][p]He is the most foul tempered **** on a hangover. He had the most infectious, filthy laugh that made you laugh until you’d cry.[/p][p]Reliably unreliable, [/p][p]selfish, rude, but adventurous, [/p][p]inappropriate, excessive, and absolutely hilarious, [/p][p]late, complicated, proud, and stubborn, [/p][p]generous, loyal, determined and never ever dull….…. [/p][p] [/p][p]Glen…..[/p][p]The person who would always go just that little bit too far…….. [/p][p]One of the few people that deep down we all knew we could count on..[/p][p]A man who would gladly drop everything to help out a friend if they really needed it – [/p][p]and enjoy the act of doing it! [/p][p]In talking about Glenny I could, as anyone that knew him could, recount countless stories, but there is 1 however that for me is so brilliant its almost urban myth.[/p][p] [/p][p]One night in Leeds whilst at Uni there was a party going on at Glen’s house. At some point in the evening Glen ran out of fags so, as you do, drove the short distance to petrol station to re stock….[/p][p]Upon arrival he jumped out his car, door open, engine running, went in , bought the fags and promptly walked home….[/p][p]Arriving home, he was shocked to find his car not there and assumed it had been stolen and, as anyone would, reported the theft to the police….[/p][p]Keen not to let this ruin his evening he carried on partying.[/p][p]Some time later, typically, he ran out of fags again so trudged back to the petrol station…[/p][p]To his joy and surprise… found his car, door open, engine still running….bought his fags and drove home.[/p][p]To this day I don’t know how he explained to the police that his car had “turned up” but hey! [/p][p] [/p][p]Our lives are lesser without Glen here but immensely richer for having him in them at all.[/p][p]He was, to quoin a phrase, “An Absolute Lege” and none of us would change him for the world.[/p]

I knew Glen in 6th form and also at Leeds Uni. Unknowingly in recent years we were living around the corner from each other. I wish I had known at the time as would give everything to hear his laugh again. What a legend!!! 'Til we meet again! xxx
