Glenn L. Thompson, 85, of Gilman, died at the Cornell Care Center on April 24, 2019.

Glen was the second of seven children. He was a farmer all of his life, and enjoyed it. Although he had numerous health issues that limited his mobility he enjoyed woodworking in high school, and playing cards with Tic being one of his favorites.

Thompson of Gilman, and many nieces and nephews.
