HALE – A large gathering of Hale and Long Lake residents came out, to witness the unveiling of the Memorial Bench for beloved resident Glenn Davis. Glenn and his wife, Janeen, were homeowners on Long Lake for many years and had just moved into their second home on the lake. Glenn unexpectedly passed away May 29 at the age of 57.
Glenn was a proven leader who tirelessly championed and encouraged those around him to exceed. He was the unofficial “Mayor of Long Lake.” His dance moves at Long Lake Bar were “legendary.”
Glenn’s passion was community and helping those in need. Along with several friends, Glenn created the FISH @ The Wick Charity Golf event to benefit the FISH Organization in Hale. Almost 500 people attended Glenn’s service in Livonia in June, but it only made sense to establish a memorial to the life and passion of Glenn in the town he loved so much: Hale
A GoFundMe page was created to purchase a memorial bench to be placed at the FISH Memorial Garden in Hale. Within an hour, enough money was raised to purchase the bench. Donations continued to come in for many weeks after. The money over and above the cost of the bench ($2852) was donated to FISH officials.
Anyone wishing to donate in Glenn’s name contact: FISH, 207 E Main Street, Hale, Michigan 48739, or call 989-728-6991.
