    Glenn was my Foreman, and basketball coach at Barber Coleman. He would not play in the industrial league games unless we were short handed. It always seemed like one of the opposing players would say something, hey let me guard the old guy. And Glenn showing no expression, would take the guy to school. Either shooting a two handed set shot over them, or flying by them and banking in a running left handed hook. And even then just alittle twinkle in his eye. He was a good man, I learned a lot from him, on how to treat people, he was always fair.

  2. Jim Phelps

    My late father, Joseph Phelps, was the long time manager of the Blackhawk Club's basketball team Glenn was a member of that team for years. I was the ball boy for most of those games. Glenn besides being a great player was a perfect gentleman. I enjoyed watching him play and talking to him. He had the last of the two hand set shots in basketball. Another connection was my father also worked at Barber-Colman. Incidentally, I have three or four 8x10 photos of from the paper from the 1950's and 1960's if you are interested in them. My number is 815-885-3081.

    The few times I met Mr. Nunally I was always impressed how much of a gentleman he was. He dearly loved his family, and he showed it every time he was with us. He was a great example of God's love.

    Glenn was an amazing man and father. I so enjoyed seeing him at Brenda's house doing a million chores around the house. He was a wonderful fellow-very kind and gentle. And he loved his bible!!!! What a super addition to heaven.
