Glenn W Miller

Please join us in remembering Firefighter Glenn Williams Miller of the Whispering

Pines Fire Department (NC) who died in the line of duty 10 years ago- August 17, 2007, at the age of 34 following a massive heart attack.

(Submitted by Parents)

Glenn always enjoyed outdoor adventures & being part of a group. He was a Boy Scout, on baseball teams, in a local Rock Band as a bass guitarist, a proud member of the U.S. Marine Corps, and a 32nd Degree Masonic Lodge Member.

In all his activities, Glenn was a loyal, supportive member who preferred to be in the background encouraging others.

After high school in Michigan, he entered the U.S. Marine Corps. Glenn was very proud to wear the uniform & he truly had a warrior’s heart to help others. Glenn was stationed at bases throughout the U.S. and was also deployed overseas to Cuba and Okinawa, Japan. After an honorable discharge from Camp LeJeune, NC, Glenn decided to remain in North Carolina.

Glenn was very intelligent, a quick learner, deep thinker, and an avid reader. In college,he studied business management, psychology, philosophy, and comparative religions.

In Pinehurst, NC, Glenn was Head of Security at Plantation Golf Course and a Level 2 Asphalt Quality Control Lab Tech for APAC Company in Wilmington, NC. His great work ethic, honesty, sense of humor, likeable personality, and integrity were apparent to his employers & co-workers.

Then, Glenn decided to pursue a career in firefighting. Just like in the Marines, firefighters “run in” to help when others are running out. He was a graduate of the Regional Fire Training Academy in Fayetteville, NC. His fellow firefighters affectionately called him the “Old Man”. He was their encourager from the sidelines.

Glenn was a very special humble, loyal, loving man. He was there to help family and friends whenever he was needed. He truly lived the Marine Motto – “Semper Fi” – “Always Faithful” !

Even after all these years since his passing, we feel Glenn’s loving spirit watching over us. We still miss seeing his sparkling blue eyes smiling at us, having our late night talks, and him giving is big hugs !!! We keep his memory alive in out hearts& talk to his picture in our home daily. Glenn is truly missed !!! (Jeremiah 29:11 ; 1st Peter 5:6 )
