  4. To Sandy and all of the Arp family. I have known Glenn for about 35 years and to this day, I can’t remember him without a smile on his face. When I started on the Police Department, he would always go out of his way to say hello and to help me when he could. I will always remember Glenn as good, kind and funny guy who was loyal to his friends and loved his family deeply. Although I didn’t get to see him much over the last few years, I will certainly miss him. God bless of of his family and friends that he leaves behind. Your friend always, Charlie and Gail Faidley

  10. To The Entire Arp family,
    My condolences to you all. Although I didn’t get to know Glen at C.G.P.D. as he retired just prior to my employment. I know that he was a very dedicated Police Officer and loyal to the badge and community he served. He served with great honor and dignity. He will be missed by all of his brothers and sisters in Law Enforcement and will always be remembered. May your memories of him be sweet and always make you smile.
    God Bless

  11. I would like to express my sincere condolences to the entire Arp family. I have known Glenn for 29 years since becoming a Coral Gables Police Officer. Glenn always will be remembered by me as being a mentor and a friend. He was patient and always concerned about how I was. He took time to explain things and in later years after retirement he and Sandy opened their home to me whenever I was visiting in town. I will miss his friendship,the visits,the breakfast and dinner get togethers with him. We all have lost a dear friend.

  12. Richard and Family, In 1970 I met your dad in Coral Gables where I worked at Bill’s Resturant the Resturant that Terry and Artie Requate owned on Alhambra Circle. Most all of the Coral Gables Detectives and Police Officers would come there for breakfast and or lunch. Your Dad never changed. He was such a unique person, and he always seemed so calm, no matter what was happening. He always had it all together. Even in our Key Largo
    neighborhood, he was always the same as he was at work.
    He was great at just sitting back and listening to whatever you had to say. Always had a grin on his face and kind words to say. He had a good heart and good advice if you needed it, no matter what it was. He was a very special and very kind person. Our Hearts and Prayers go out to you and your family.

  13. How apropos to request random acts of kindness. I was a young woman working at City National Bank where Glen worked off-duty. He was kind to us all every day that he worked with us. My sympathies to his family for this painful loss of such a kind man.

  17. I had the pleasure to work with Glenn in the 70s and 80s – he was a true gentleman and a great Detective. Although it has been many years, I also have fond memories of Glenn and Sandy’s hospitality on several Sunday afternoons at their home in the Keys…those memories will live on for me and many others.

  19. Aunt Sandra and Family,
    You are in our thoughts and prayers at this sad time. We think often of his kindness and friendship – when Dad came down to stay in the Keys with Grandma, when we stayed there on our honeymoon almost 30 years ago and especially his help when Dad was sick. Love, Debra and Steve

  22. He was my brother and I loved him. He always was there for me. His entire family was and still is always in my thoughts and prayers. I am proud of what he accomplished in his life. He often spoke of how proud he was of Richard and Carol and their accomplishment. We credit his survival this long to his wife Sandy, whom he loved for 39 years. All of us will miss him.

  24. Dear Sandy, Patty and I express our deepest condolences to you. I met Glenn before I joined the Coral Gables Police Department and he was the reason I wanted to be a police officer. He was such a nice and kind man. I worked with him for many years in the Detective Divison and when he retired I was promoted and requested to have his Sergeants badge pinned on me. I was always proud that I wore his badge during my career. Our prayers are with you and your family.
