Peter DeNardis, Chair of the IWMF Board of Trustees, said, “The IWMF community is deeply saddened by his passing. Glenn was a tireless volunteer, freely giving his expertise and time to further advance WM-specific research, and to provide guidance and advice to others dealing with Waldenstrom’s macroglobulinemia.” Glenn had served as an active Board Member since 2020 and was a key member of the IWMF’s Scientific Advisory Committee and Research Committee.

His keen insight and probing questions always led to great discussions at Ed Forums, Board Meetings, and Research Committee meetings, and served to further advance the outlook for WM research. His presence will be sorely missed by all, patients, caregivers, researchers, and clinicians alike. His intellect, humor, and insight were unparalleled.

The IWMF extends their heartfelt sympathies to his wife and family. May they take comfort in the knowledge that Glenn had a tremendous impact on everyone he encountered while on his WM journey and mission of helping others, whether in person or virtually around the world.

His family has suggested that donations can be made in his memory to a couple of his greatest passions: he valued the work of the International Waldenstrom’s Macroglobulinemia Foundation and the St Baldrick’s Foundation.
