Glenn Quick Obit

Glenn Erman Quick, Jr., October 13, 1936 – March 18, 2019, husband of Penelope Dolman.

After serving in Germany in the Air Force Reserve his first job was to join his father in their family’s business which was founded by his great grandfather in 1922; Quick Seed and Feed. The company continued on and by 1974 he took over his dad’s place as President. Eventually, the company changed its name to Quick Grain Corporation.

Glenn was a wonderful husband to Penelope (Penny), a father to four children, Glenn III (d), Julia (d), Jeanne (d) and Christopher, Step-father to Amanda Kass (Jonathan), Ryan Hart and loving grandpa to Jayden and Jonah Kass.

Glenn was known for his love of life. His activities listed: the Phoenix Men’s Art Council (President), the Phoenix Symphony (Director), Compas (Vice President and Director) the Heard Museum (Trustee), and the Phoenix Chamber Music Society. He was proud to belong to the Young President’s Organization/YPO (1976-1987), (Chairman 1985) the Arizona President’s Organization/APO, the World Presidents Association/WPO, and the Chiefs Executives Organization/CEO.

He was a friend to all and loved life. His generosity touched everyone he knew. He will be sadly missed.

Glenn and Penny have been so very generous to our organization, Canine Companions for Independence. I got to know Glenn when he took a particular liking to my puppy in training, Kiefer. When we went to lunch or dinner, Glenn always had to show off the “hug” command that he “taught” Kiefer! What a wonderful man. He will be missed. Godspeed Glenn.
