Prayer request: Freeper Jack "Tahiti"Glennon killed in an accident on July 3
Received via email | July 6, 2005

Posted on 07/06/2005 9:20:00 PM PDT by Jim Robinson

Just received the following message from FReeper Tahiti's wife:

Hello,

I do not know if I am contacting the appropriate person. However, I wanted to let the people at Freerepublic.com know that my husband, Jack Glennon, was killed in an accident on July 3, 2005.

Jack spent many hours of his time daily/weekly at your website and I know he posted often. I just wanted to let you know of his tragic passing.

He was a dynamic, wonderful man and a loving and devoted father. Freerepublic was such a big part of his life that I felt I needed to let someone know who might be able to post this information.

His obituary can be found in the St. Louis Post Dispatch in the Tuesday and Wednesday editions (which I know is a liberal paper - he reminded me often!).

Thank you.

Sherry Glennon

I cannot imagine her pain. It is sad when anyone dies, and a bit sadder to lose a freeper.

Jim, let her know how much we are saddened for her, and that we send her our deepest sympathies.

My condolences to you Sherry. What a sweet thing for you to do. Jack was blessed with a thoughtful wife.

And to Jim Robinson, how wonderful knowing that your website gave enjoyment to Jack and gives enjoyment to many daily.

It also gives us many good memories of each other.

Sherry,
Thank you for allowing your husband to share so much of his time with this community. I know spouses have a hard time sometimes with the time spent on FR. I want to thank you for being so gracious and respectful for letting us know. I pray that the Lord Comforts you and allows all of the rich feelings and memories of your relationship to remain connected in thier appropriate place.

Thanks for posting this. May he rest in peace. It sounds like his wife went to some trouble to let his FRiends here know about his passing. That was very sweet and kind of her.

Like the other gentleman's son who posted of his father's death last week. It is good to know how much FR means to folks.

In my limited time on this forum, I don't recall seeing his posts, but Tahiti obviously was a highly principled, strong Consitutionalist. This country needs a lot more men like him.
