Glen Legler

On March 12th, 2011 at 2:55pm (the time school gets out), dad took his last breath while surrounded by his family.  Many of you posted messages to him encouraging him to win this battle.  He wasn’t able to win this one, but if you knew dad, you knew that winning wasn’t really what it was about.  It was about how you played it, and dad played it well.  We’ve been reading your comments to him and each other as they’ve come in.  Thank you so much to everyone for all of the prayers and well wishes to dad and us.  We’ll post more later regarding plans for services.  Again, thank you all so much.

    Glen was a kind, loving and wonderful man. I was very blessed to have known him. He tried to bring my son into his men’s singing group and every time he saw Jacob sing he made sure Glen would find him to tell him how good he was at whatever he had sang. Glen cared so much for all NCSD students. He will be sorely missed. May God’s love be upon you all. Prayers are with you.

      Words cannot express the loss felt when all heard of Glen’s passsing. Above all else, you always knew Glen wanted to always do what was right for the kids. He was a fair man and one who did not judge. God Bless the Legler family, be with them at this time, but know that Glen was a gift to all who knew him. I feel priviliged to have worked with him. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

    My family and I are so sorry for your loss.
    I can’t tell you how many times this February I told the story about being over at the Legler house for Super Bowl XXXII all the way back in 1998! Your dad could’ve and probably should’ve crushed all our obnoxious highschooler skulls. Glen had the courage to hang out with one of the craziest bunch of kids for the entire show (and not kill any of us)! The Leg’s (of course) supplied us all with food and drink for the entire afternoon probably causing our parents to breathe a sigh of relief (for being free of us during the big game) that was probably heard even upwind as far as Muddy Gap. Kids, ferrets, drums, football and family! Doesn’t get much better than that. 😉 Love you guys… ~rob bryans~ (I posted this on Scott’s and Brad’s facebook walls and thought I should post it here as well.)

  5. John Trohkimoinen says:

    Our thoughts and prayers continue to flow to all of Glen’s family. I was lucky enough to work with him while he was our AD at NC and I got to know him as passionate person and a real pro. We are all the better because of Glen. Let God’s goodness, grace, and strength be with all of you.

    Sincerely,

    John, Karen, Kristen, and Lauren Trohkimoinen

  6. Mary Ann Chavez says:

    Rest in peace my dear friend, Glen. I loved you like a father. Noah and Chloe were sad to hear they lost their “grandpa” today. You touched their hearts as well. We will never forget you!!
    Our prayers go out to your wonderful family. May you have peace in your hearts.

  7. Bill and Jo Loudy says:

  9. Brant and Juanita Jungck says:

    Please know how saddened we were to hear about Glen. We didn’t know Glen well, having only met a couple of times…but it certainly felt like we did listening to stories from Jennet and Pat. We offer our prayers for peace and comfort for all of you.

  10. Bud Aultman says:

    Rest in peace friend. My thoughts are with your family. Keep an eye on us down here. Thanks for allowing us to enjoy your life

  11. Maggie Matson says:

    Legler family: I’m so saddened to hear this and can’t imagine what you are going through. My thoughts and prayers have been with you all this week. I grew up with “Legs” in my life as I hung out at NC with my dad … first as a little kid, then as a student (especially at the Million Dollar Hole in One for days straight in the summer) and subsequent visits back from college. Stopping in to see Legs and Karen were always highlights of my days at NC, and seeing him at various sports events was so commonplace. He always regarded me in that friendly way we all know so well, and was always a bit fatherly…updates on his kids were frequent, and it was obvious how much he loved his family. It seems so strange that someone who was a big part of so many people’s everyday lives has now left us. I’m so glad Legs was surrounded by family when he passed. Rest in peace, and thank you, Legs, for all you did for high school sports and for our community.

  12. Mark and Mary Hopkins says:

    To the Legler family and friends we’re sorry for your loss. We know you’ll be with him again when the time comes. We think he’ll be singing with the angels.
    Our love to you all.

  13. Shaine, Tony, & Layla Dill says:

    There’s so much I want to say but I’m struggling to form my words… Just 13 days ago I was sitting in Glen’s living room chatting with him, his beautiful wife, and one of my greatest friends – Stacy. Glen sat on the floor next to me and held his dog tight so she couldn’t attack my daughter’s face with kisses. We didn’t talk about anything too important but I’ll be thankful for those last two hours in his presence for the rest of my life. Thanks so much for always encouraging me, Glen. For taking time to catch up every single time I came over and for giving me uplifting advice when I was struggling. But most of all, thank you for always treating me like part of your family. You gave me a second home when I needed it the most. Your heart was one of a kind and you will be greatly missed by me, my husband, and countless others. Next time I see you I promise to spend at least 20 minutes catching up with you first, before letting anyone else know I’ve arrived, just like old times! Love you Legler family!

  29. Brent Jurgensen says:

    I am so sorry to hear that Glen passed today. He was such a positive and caring mentor to me as a young man entering coaching and education. He always expected the best and led by example. His genuine joy in greeting people and enthusiasm for doing things right were contagious. I can only hope that our words continue to provide you comfort and a smile in your time of loss.

    God Bless you Glen.

    Sincerely,

    Brent Jurgensen

  30. Whitney says:

    I am so sorry for your loss Legler family. I had the opertunity to work with “Leggs” with student coucnil. (getting his permission with everything). He was a great man. I had a fun time planning his retirment party two years ago at NC. He was a fun teacher to be around. May he rest in Peace. -Whitney Stack

  31. Shane True says:

    I am so sorry for your family’s loss. Glen was one of the brightest lights at NCHS. He will be missed by everyone who knew him. Thank you for keeping all of us updated through what must have been a very tough and emotional time. My thoughts and prayers go out to the entire Legler family.

  32. Dawnie Bernat says:

    I was deeply saddened by the news about Glen. I remember him very fondly. I am truly sorry for your loss. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

  33. Bill Ochs says:

    Many years ago, Glen was one the first people to step forward and make me feel welcome at NCHS. A man of his word, always honest and straight forward, with a laugh that was infectious, I was honored to know him and considered him a mentor at my first job in the school district. I always thought he forgot more about teaching math (his old job at DMJH) than some of us may have ever learned. His passing is a loss for all who knew him.

  34. Barb Couey says:

    I am very sad for your loss Legler family. My prayers and thoughts to all of you, for he has one great family.

  35. Tony Garwood says:

    I am so sorry to hear about your loss. Glen touched so many lives and will truly be missed! Praying for your comfort in this time.

  36. The Harshman's says:

    Dear Legler’s,
    Our heart is heavy as we send you condolences. You always hear in the education world… “all about the kids.” Well Glen lived that…for him it was always about the kids. He supported his coaches as well. He was loyal and fair and he loved. God is Love, and Love has come for Leggs. The Hennagin’s have it right…Glen is celebrating the biggest WIN and will enjoy an eternal Awards banquet. May the grace and peace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ be with Glen, his family and all of those that he touched. You will be missed.

  37. All the Hovey Family (Brad, Lisa, Keith, Derek, Annie, Kevin, Peggy, and Joey) says:

    Today God took another great Man to be an angel. He is a person that will be truly missed. There are few of us that are allowed to pass thru the gates of heaven without talking to St. Peter first. Glen was one of those that was just passed thru. Now he is setting with our family members, Auntie Max, Uncle Fred, Mom (Bev) and Grammie Irene and Dawsie talking and catching up on all things that have happened. May he rest in peace! Our prayers and thoughts are with ALL the family. Let us know if we can help in anyway.

  38. Kristen (Langdon) Atkinson says:

    Patty and Kids,
    I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Many of my earliest memories are of your dad and my dad refereeing together. Then as we all grew up, the many times I babysat you four while your folks went out on the town! He was a great man, educator, and leader. I will miss his infectious smile and endearing support. God bless you all through this tough time.

  39. Baillie Gibson says:

    I am very saddened to hear about Glen. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Glen was a very special man and always made me smile when i saw him. I have very many memories with Glen and will cherish them always. God Bless you all and give you strength to get through this time of saddness. Thanks Glen for all you did for all of us athletes! I will miss you greatly!

  40. Julie Garner says:

    Legler Family,

    It is with great sadness that I write this. My sincerest condolences to your family on this tremendous loss. Mr. Legler was a true inspiration to the kids he loved at NCSD. He told me as a Senior that he was “my biggest fan” and I carried that confidence into college and now as a teacher at NCHS. I will never forget his smile and support. I am thankful that I was able to sit with him in the AD office last week and have our last conversation. He has always been the true “spirit” of Natrona and now he truly is. Thank you, Glen, for your confidence in the athletes and students of NCSD. May you continue to smile in Heaven as you did on Earth. You will be missed. LOVE has brought you home. R.I.P.

  41. Rick and Patty Arner says:

    Patty and I send our thoughts and prayers to the Legler family. What a considerate angel!!…When God takes you to the edge, trust in him. One of two things will happen. You will either fall and he will catch you, or he will teach you how to fly. Fly Glen to a more peaceful place.

  42. Bernie and Billie Jo Gibson says:

    Our thoughts and prayers are with all of the family. Glen was a wonderful man and a mentor to many. He always kept the kids best interests at heart. He will be greatly missed . Thanks Glen for all you did, you really made a difference for our kids.

  43. lindsey glasscock says:

    Thanks glen for all u did for me. I loved getting to know you and loved working with you during the hot summer months at nc. You were a great friend and a good “father” figure to me . i am very blessed to have know you. You will be dearly missed rest in peace old friend.

  44. Gary Johnson says:

    It is a sad day for all of us who knew Glen. No one worked harder for kids. My thoughts and prayers are with the Legler family.

  45. Jimenez Family says:

    I am sorry for your loss, Glen was such a great man. He did so much for NCHS, westside athletics, all students, all athletes, the city of Casper, and people in general. He was able to help so many people in so many ways. He will be missed, and never forgotten. God Bless

  46. Sarah schulte and family says:

    Stacy and family,
    We are SO sorry to hear about your loss!!!! All of you have more courage than I could hope to have if I was faced with such a difficult decision whither it was what my dad wanted or not. Bless all of you and I hope that you can find peace in the coming days, weeks,ect. If there is anything we can do for you please let us know ( food, shoulder to cry on, clean your house, ect)!

  47. Hopper and Yentes families says:

    We are so sorry for your loss. Glen was an incredible person and will be greatly missed. I will never forget his beaming smile at state track as he, with pride, filled me in on how his family was doing. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all, and we hope you find solace in knowing he is in a better place.

  48. Kari Warfield says:

    My love and prayers to you. A man couldn’t have asked for a better life than that he lived with all of you. His character reflects in you all, and you are the strongest, most loving family I have ever been blessed to know. Safe journey, Glenn. Jason and all, my love.
    Kari

  49. To the Legler Family,

    We are so sorry for your loss. What a wonderful, funny, dedicated and terrific guy he was! I (Sally) will always smile remembering our time working together at Dean Morgan. Glen was a great mentor and was always there for me providing support and encouragement. As the years have passed and he moved on to Athletic Director at NCHS I watched Glen savor his love for athletics just as he did in his passion as an educator. He will be sorely missed by many friends. I will always smile, thinking of the many stories, funny tales and good times we had together! God’s plan has taken him home way too soon. We know how difficult this is for you all and our prayers are with you.

  50. Travis, Carmen, Vanessa, Tiffany, Trevor says:

    We are so sorry for your loss. Glen was a great man and an awesome Uncle. We will be down later this week to offer our support and prayers. God Bless you in this time of grieving.

  51. Melissa Tapp says:

    I am so sorry to hear of your loss. May God grant you comfort and peace during this difficult time. Patti……my heart goes out to you. Sending my continued thoughts and prayers your way my friend. :'(

  52. Fred & Bobbi Bronnenberg & Kids says:

    Glen was such an amazing man and SO proud of his family. You all gave him yet another reason to be proud over these last few difficult days. By honoring his wishes and doing it with such grace, you all showed him the highest level of respect and kindness!!

    On a personal note, we will miss Uncle Glen greatly. He was so supportive of our family, and we always looked forward to his summer visits. He will be greatly missed.

  53. Mark Hileman and Family says:

    The passing of Glen is a huge loss to this community. I still remember the early coaching years at Dean Morgan when Glen would organize BBQ’s for the coaches and families and what seemed to be a thousand little coaches kids running around Edness Kimball Park. I remember Stacey was about three at the time and she would always play with the big kids and get bumped around but never cried. Those times bonded friendships that still exist today and I know that was what Glen was all about. He connected coaches and athletes to establish a family atmosphere. He spent his time and efforts helping other people when in need……That is how I will always remember Glen.

  54. Michele Warfield says:

    I am so sorry for your loss. He will be truly missed by all who knew him and who knew of him. Gone too soon and loved so much. Your a very close family. God be with you.

    Michele and Greg Warfield

  55. Patti McConnell says:

    I don’t know how many State Track Meets Glen, Bud and I did together up in the “booth”, but we definitely had a system! I certainly never envied Glen having to make some really tough decisions when there were ties, but he was ALWAYS fair and took his time to make sure he got it right. He loved athletics and he would talk about his kids with so much pride describing what events they were involved in at the time. Good times – even better memories.

    Patti Pierce McConnell

  56. Bruce Barrett says:

    Like so many, my memories of Glen go back a long way. 45 years!!! I remember him as forthright, honest and a pillar of strength to those around him. I send my best to his loved ones, you were all lucky to have each other. I hope you have a world of memories to keep you warm.

  57. Lonnie Cain says:

    To LEGG and the Legler family,
    I wish to convey my saddness for such a great loss. Glen was my first Junior high football coach and wrestling coach while at Dean Morgan. I grew to know him not only as a coach but as a professional as well. No matter when I saw him during my school years or even long after, as recent as this last summer, he was always interested in how I was doing and how the Army was treating me. I will surely miss seeing him when I return to Casper to visit family and friends. As the Harshmans stated he “was about the kids!” So true, but he was more than that, he was “about everybody” always a friend, a mentor, and a leader. GOD BLESS and GOD SPEED!

  58. Sharon (Raver) Smith says:

    I’m extremely saddened to hear of your loss of such a great guy to everyone who knew him. My memories of Glen began long ago and I will hold those close to my heart.
    My thoughts and best wishes to all Glen’s family (Fritz and family) to get through this very sad time.
    Bless you all.

  59. Kevin & Trish Williams says:

    God must have needed someone to be “the guy” in heaven to organize, run, and put on a class event for kids there. If there was ever a man who had his priorities right, it was Glen. He never forgot to say thanks and he was reluctant to take the credit for all of the things he did right. Wonderful traits that his daughter Stacey exhibits to this day. I will always be thankful to Glen for entrusting her care to me for a period of time as her coach. His trust in having me be a part of one of his family treasure’s life will always be appreciated.

    Fiercely loyal to family and school is a trait anyone in his business should stride to emulate. He will be missed by those of us left here, but I’m sure God has something for Glen to do that will make even heaven a better place for those who were privy to Legs’ good will and giving spirit here on earth when we all, at some point in time, join him.

  60. Joan (Deakins) Overby, Darryl and Rich says:

    We have been praying for you all each day since receiving the e-mail about Glen from Jennet. Our heartful condolances and prays go out to you all. We are so happy that we were able to visit with Glen and family while in Wyoming for Jobs Daughters about 8 or 9 years ago? Glen led a great life and was a special person in his community through teaching, coaching and most of all his family. He will be greatly missed. Our love to you all in the Legler family. So all are so very special and memories of you all will remain forever. Joan, Darryl, Cassie (Darryl’s daughter) and Rich.

    P.S. Darryl called his dad yesterday and we will call Rich today and let them know.

  61. Jean Morgan says:

    As one of the many “set of twins” at Cody High School…there has always been a bond with Glen and Fritz. Jane and I will forever remember the wonderful memories of those days so long ago…and send our condolences to the the family. Glen will be missed by all of us.

  62. DeeDee Loomer and Family says:

    So Sorry for your lost. He was a wonderful person. We has some interesting times working in school. I was a honor to serve with him on may of his committies. I really enjoyed when he came with Brad to our Family Branding we will miss the smile and the fun loving man.

  63. Anne Underbrink says:

    Glen was what the French call “un vrai gentilhomme,” a true gentleman. He always put the good of our students first, always treated everyone with respect and kindness, always doing the right thing. He always had an encouraging word and smile for those around him having a hard day, no matter who it was. When brand new to teaching high school, he told me that it was like parenting, the hardest and the most rewarding job that one can do. Thank you Glen, I needed to hear that on that specific day, more than you knew. Thank you for all your encouraging words, usually at 4pm in the hallways, over students you wouldn’t let slip through the cracks. You constantly helped us help them.

  64. Nora (Allen) Lyon says:

    Rest In Peace, my friend of over half a century. To your family and Fritz’s family, I pray for that peace that passeth all understanding. We hold you in our hearts.

  65. Brad andChandra Reinhart says:

    This is Chandra(Brad’s Wife). I am so sorry for your loss…Your family is in our prayers. Also if you need anything do not hesitate to call us and we will be there. I never met him but Brad told me stories and he sounded like an amazing person. Again I am so sorry. God bless.

  66. Eskews says:

    May god bless each of you with peace and comfort during this time.

  67. Heidi Hasbrouck says:

    Dear Patti, Stacy and family
    Im sorry to hear of your loss. My heart hurts for you and your family in this difficult time. May you find peace in all of your wonderful memories. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time.

  72. Reinhart Family says:

    You will be missed! Thank you for all you have done over the years–for so many. Working with Glen on a variety of events and his friendship with my family will always be remembered. Thank you for being their for my sons and for picking me up off the floor in the NC locker room the night my son blew out his ankle….people always came first. Legler family, our thoughts and prayers are with you—

  73. Mayumi Ogino says:

    I am very sorry for your loss. I never had a chance to mee him, but I heard about him from Stacy all the time. He was the best father. He will be missed many.

  74. Susan Rodabaugh says:

    Glen was a mentor, not to just students, but to the hundreds and hundreds of us whom he knew and reached out to. My thoughts and prayers go out to your family. I am grateful for the time you allowed him to spend and mentor me. I will pass his wisdom and knowledge on to others.

  75. mark cimburek says:

    Dear Patti & kids,
    I miss Glen. He was with me when I started at DMJH in 1981. The transition to 1500 students was made easier with him as a mentor. The opportunity to coach & play golf with him at 5:30 in the morning are fond memories that will stay with me. (do you want to talk about being late?) So many memories… I still remember the words of wisdom & encouragement he gave me on the day I got married. He was so level headed. I won’t be able to attend a sporting event without thinking of him. He was one of a kind & I will miss him.
    Mark

  76. Ian Gouthro says:

    Sorry to hear about your Dad, Scott. I want you to know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers during this hard time. He is most definitely in a better place now. I did not know him but I feel since I got to know you that it was most likely a piece of him as well. If you need anything please let me know. The Canadian team is with you and yours. Take care and stay strong Scott! Much love.

  77. Derek & Poppy says:

    Poppy and I have been reading the site. Our thoughts are with you and your family. We are very sorry to hear of your loss.

  79. The Levin's (Aaron, Rachel, Jack and Anna) says:

    We are sorry to hear of your loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. May God bless you all with peace and comfort.

  80. Catherine Morris says:

    I think of all the lives Glenn touched, the person he was and the example he set. I know there are many who were waiting to welcome him home. It reminds me of a poem/reading Maria Shriver read at recent service for a friend: The Little Ship: I stood watching as the little ship sailed out to sea. The setting sun tinted his white sails with a golden light, and as he disappeared from sight a voice at my side whispered, “He is gone”. But the sea was a narrow one. On the farther shore a little band of friends had gathered to watch and wait in happy expectation. Suddenly they caught sight of the tiny sail and, at the very moment when my companion had whispered, “He is gone” a glad shout went up in joyous welcome, “Here he comes!”

  81. Jessie Wagner says:

    To the Legler family…
    My heart is heavy with sadness as I think of all your family is going through during this extremely difficult time. There are hundreds of things that come to mind to say but none can really comfort as the simple words of knowing that you all are in our thoughts. Its is so beautiful to read all of the comments written and know how truly special of a person Glen was to so many people. What a blessing to touch so many lives in what will always feel like such a short time. Some of the greatest things I have learned about caring have come from Patti and the lessons to look within ourselves to see them. What a strong family you have together and with each other I am sending much hope and continued strength to get through this time. If there is anything I can ever do, lend a hand, ear, shoulder or smile please let me know!

  82. Pat and Jessica says:

    Jason and Family,
    We are very sad that he couldn’t overcome it. He blessed those in his life with humor, strength, and determination. You in turn bless others in your lives with the same qualities. He obviously shared those same qualities at work with students and colleagues. How could a parent and educator be anymore successful? You nailed it – he played it well, he played life well.

  89. Brandon Smith says:

    First of all, it is my sincere prayer that the Lord bless and keep you in this your time of loss. May the happy memories overpower his absence today and always until you meet again.

    Unlike many who have posted here, I have known Glen but a short while; perhaps two years now off and on through barbershop. I am a lead and Glen is a lead. He was gracious enough to take me under his wing as a mentor to teach and encourage me, for the which I am very grateful.

    I recall a trip to WMC to sing in the hallways in hopes of brightening another’s day. It became apparent that Glen was a giver, that he cared a great deal about others. He always had a smile and a good sense of humor. He brought enthusiasm and performance to the group.

    Perhaps the greatest tribute that I can pay him is the void I feel knowing that he is no longer with us. To know someone relatively little and yet to miss them in this way speaks volumes to the impact they have had on you. May we all go forward and continue his legacy of caring, giving, mentoring, and meeting others with a genuine smile.

    Legler family: I am so saddened to hear this. Glen was a man of great integrity. He was so loyal to the schools he worked in but he knew no boundaries when it came to helping kids. He always expected the best and he led by example. Glen had been a mentor for so many coaches and a father to many students. His enthusiasm for all activities was contagious. He worked tireless on our Nordic ski events. I am so fortunate that Glen’s path has cross my earthly path. It did not matter what event he was at, he always had a smile on his face and enjoyed the atmosphere. The Nordic Community and the State of Wyoming will miss him greatly.

  93. Kelly Hof Wolff says:

    Mr. Legler was my 8th grade math teacher at Dean Morgan and then the following year he made it so that I could be his 9th grade teachers aid instead of me picking a class I did not want to take. He was an awesome teacher and taught me plenty the year I was his aid. He will be greatly missed by so many- I am blessed to have known him and to be a small part of his life.

  94. Mike Blackburn, NIAAA Staff says:

    Our prayers are with the entire Legler family during this time of loss. We were saddened to hear for Glen’s passing, as we had just been with him during his September visit to Indianapolis for the Leadership Training State Coordinators meetings. In addition, he served the year previous as a member of our Strategic Planning Committee. Glen was profound in his belief in education based atheltic programs as a tool in the positive development of young people. We so appreciated his passion for the cause of sport as an extension of the educational process. He will be missed by so many. Knowing him I am certain of his profound impact on the Casper community. May God provide you a special peace during this time. Blessings.

    Dear Legler Family-

    I am so sorry to hear of the passing of a wonderful man. I met your husband/father about 7 years ago through the NIAAA and he was an immediate friend and person who took me under his wing. He and I shared a common love for the part of the country in which we both live. I know he is in a better place now and in the Lord’s hands and enjoying every minute of it. He definitely made his mark on this world in so many ways and I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to get to know him. I will miss him terribly but his friendship and our laughter together will be something I will cherish forever. My heart goes out to you and you all are in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
