My thoughts are with the Eberly family at this difficult time. Glen was a friend from school and a co-worker at Liberty Fire Company where we both served as fire fighters. Glen continued to serve his community in that position for nearly 60 years. Thank you for your many years of service. Peace be with you Glen.
