Celebrating the life of Orville Glenn Fojtik
Thank you for signing Orville Glenn Fojtik's Guestbook
Dear Glenn, This eulogy comes a little late but not forgotten.
We thought about the time when you and Bill met in the Army and became good friends. Along came Anna Marie and me and then there were four. Then you helped Bill get his first job after the Army which was just like you always helping someone out. After you and your family moved away we only kept in touch by Christmas cards. Then our children were grown, and you decided to search us out. We accepted a gracious offer to visit and wound up moving near you in Pawleys Is. We think of the dinners, the crab feast and so many good times. That friendship never diminished. We always enjoyed each others company. You gave us a bunch of liriope, the good gardener that you were. It surrounds our yard and will always make us think of you. How clever! You will be in our hearts and minds and we will miss you. Rest in peace, dear Glenn.

I miss you more than words can say. I am so thankful that you are at peace and that gives me great comfort. Thank you for being the most amazing father. You worked tirelessly for your family and we are all so grateful. You will forever live on in my heart. You are gone, but never forgotten. To quote Winnie the Pooh------How lucky am I to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard!
I LOVE YOU DAD!

Glenn you hold a special place in my heart. I treasure the memories we have of our many dine-in and dine-out nights and especially the holidays we shard. I can see us all laughing and enjoying each other. Thanks for all the good times. Your memory lives on. We will miss you. MJ Martin

I have thought over and over on what I wanted to say. I have no words. I’ve already shared a few moments with others.
Gonna miss you! Even though we have lots of miles between us, I always looked forward to the visits. I just wish there could have been more.
You will be missed so much, but never forgotten.
All my love,

Dad you will forever be in my heart and soul. Thank you for helping to shape me into the man I am today. I love you deeply, as does everyone that you touched over the years. I am greatful for the life that you provided for us. Oh yeah, thanks for having us move that wood pile from one side of the yard to the other every year. Ha! You will be missed but I am so happy that you are in a happy place, planting flowers and vegetables! I love you!!
