It is with a heavy heart that we share the sad news that Glenn's father passed away at the age of 86. Glenn's father was a man who understood hard work, believed in the promise of America and will be missed by his children and grandchildren. Times like these remind us what is important in life and Glenn and his wife are deeply grateful for your thoughts and prayers. Glenn asks that, in lieu of flowers or donations, you would do one act of kindness for someone in your life and help spread the universal message of love.

Damn that sucks, its hard losing a parent at any age, condolences to the Beck family
Well sorry for his loss, but how is he different of all the rest of us who have lost someone, other than Glenn being a celebrity of sorts. My Dad passed away at 90 after a life of many, many years of hard work and service but no one put out a press release for me.
Prayers for Glenn and his family.
heartfelt condolences to Glenn and his family.
I lost my parents and my inlaws. Not easy.
Hope Glenn and family find solace.
Rest in Peace.
My deepest sympathy. RIP.
Prayers up. It’s not an easy path we walk in life. God Bless the Beck family.
Sorry to hear, condolences to Glenn and family.
Glenn is no different from the rest of us. When we know someone, however remotely, we sympathize with the sorrows in that person’s life.
Those of us who watch Glenn’s show knew what was happening. Perfectly normal that he would put out the word that his father had passed.
Blessings to Glenn and his family.
Prayers up for Glenn and his family! The Lord has your back Glenn. He will help you heal.
ok. I'm sorry for your loss. Happy?
Does it really matter if someone that doesn't know you or your dad mourn your loss?
My dad passed away and I could care less what anybody though about my dad passing. I just knew that I had lost a trusted advisor, wise mentor, real hard ass, loving grandfather/father/husband/son, and great guy. Bunch of Marines came to the funeral, lined up, shot their rifles and gave my mom a flag.
If every member of congress, the President, all the supreme court justices and the entire readership of the New York Times had been there it would have been a pale lonely comparison to those Marines, his family and friends. Those are the only ones that really matterer in his life and to me.
so if you think by making a snarky little comment about some dad's passing makes you somehow feel "better".... ok. more power to you brother. Somebody's dad died. We're all a little worse of if he was a good guy and better off if he were a a#@hole, either way I'm pretty sure they could care less what any press clipping or other person thinks.
God Bless Your Dad. May he rest in eternal peace.
I lost my Mom at 87 (RN) 2 yrs ago. Dad turns 90 in 2 weeks, WWII Battle of The Bulge Vet, wounded and decorated.
Our Parents are our Heros; reminds me of an old saying:
“Not everyone can be a hero. Most of us have to stand on the curb and cheer as the heroes go by.”
I hadn’t heard much about this. Occasional listener and missed it. Do we know what he’s been dealing with?
Btw, I agree. We all know Glenn through the radio and tv and an announcement is fully appropriate.
I’m afraid I’ve missed a lot of the news also. I only know that he & other family members had been called home, as it was clear the end was in sight. I don’t know if his father had been suffering from anything in particular.
My prayers for your family. It’s hard to lose a parent or grandparent no matter who you are.
Glenn’s father passed away at the age of 86.........
He lived a long life. Rest in peace!
Well snarky is what I do! Sorry but Everyones loss is important them, I feel for them, but this bunk of big publication of death just because someone in their family is famous is just freakin overblown. Just like the people who have to memorialize their loss on their freakin cars! I mean what’s the deal, can’t they remember without looking at their car every day. OH, I didn’t make a snarky comment about his dads passing bro! I made a snarky comment about his publicist making a press release about it, different thing entirely! But I guess you were too busy getting snarky to catch on to that.
My Dad, a two time CIB, Purple Heart and Bronze Star awardee got three inches in the local paper. A Color Guard and a bugler. There were 300 people at his funeral and we were greatful.
I have no animosity towards public figures and their families for getting more attention.
Why does this bother you so?
Probably because there are so many, unlike your father, who never got or will not get the recognition for their service and yet the media lionizes so many who have accomplished no more than others except to be related to a celebrity. Anyway it’s my opinion, why does it seem to bother so many here? It’s not like I have no sympathy for anyones loss of a loved one, I do, I just can’t fathom the the need to promote celebrity.
And 100 years from know it won’t matter one bit to anyone alive today.
There are greater evils out there to get worked up about than this.
Condolences to Glenn and the family.
After I posted a prayer thread for my father, who suffered a massive heart attack last fall, I announced his ultimate passing due to severe complications on this forum (an announcement so to say). It was because our FRiends here actually took time to pray and care about his final journey.
Prayer, caring, and sympathy have no boundaries nor a prescribed format.
Condolences to the Beck Family.
Quick! Forget this post...We need you on ANOTHER thread! There is someone posting from their BLOG! Help! Save us from these scoundrels, PLEASE! Hurry!!!!!!!!
I can only speak for myself, but I never had a CEO or press secretary.
Well, if you noticed it, go bust 'em.
Take some dang initiative.
Maybe you should hire a press agent.
Each man's death diminishes me,
For I am involved in mankind.
Therefore, send not to know
For whom the bell tolls,
It tolls for thee.
May he rest in peace, and may his family have peace.
So hurry up, go find the location here on FR where a savior (from scoundrels) is needed, to better expedite the process.
Scoot, skedaddle, vamanous, go forth (into the bowels of the internet, and the backrooms of FreeRepublic where no Sidebars are there to guide the unwary and unprepared) then return to us, oh intrepid traveler, and show us where this most urgent series hugh condition is presently festering!
I’m very sorry for his loss. Prayers to the family.
I’m sorry for your loss too. I don’t know Glenn or you but I am terribly sorry that both of you lost your dads.
Well I would guess that Glenn is as heartbroken as you and I were when our Dad’s passed. My Dad’s funeral was standing room only.
Prayewrs up and condolences to Glenn and his family.
I'm sure he's heartbroken, I believe he is a good person and he has my sympathy, my comments have nothing to do with his personal loss, period!
Dad passed away 7+ years now. He was a marine who fought at guadalcanal & bougainville, then served the city of NY for 22 as one of its finest.
His funeral consisted of an honor guard if NYPDs finest, then at the national cemetery his guard was a phalanx of Marines. Very Nice. Mom died 5 years ago and received none of that, but she had a nice remembrance and service too.
Not a huge Beck fan, but he is a kindred spirit on so many things. I respectfully express my deepest sorrow and may his Dad Rest in Peace.
Sorry to hear that. We were told that he was off the air “on a family matter.” Now we know what it was.
Sympathies to Glenn and his family.
Who said that he was different than the rest of us?
God bless the Beck family at this time.
You will be missed, my Friend. Best wishes and prayers for your strength and comfort.
RIP. This December, it will be 19 years since I lost my dad at age 75. Seems like yesterday. I miss him every day.
Prayers up for the Beck family. Losing a dad is tough.
Prayers for the soul of Glenn’s father and for Glenn and his grieving family.
Lord, hear our prayers.
RIP. Condolences to the Beck family.
