Glen Perry loved basketball and loved kids. He was one of the many residents of Anderson Township who enjoyed playing in the league and whose children also played in the league. Glen played in the league during the late sixties and early seventies. His twin sons played from 2006 through 2011.
When Glen was in high school, he noticed that the referees were not the greatest and he decided to get trained and to become a referee. He continued to referee in high school and Kiwanis games until about a year ago.
Glen became president of the Kiwanis league about the time his sons started their own basketball careers. He had some ideas about improving the league and started making them almost immediately when he became president and continued experimenting with new changes until shortly before he died.
The uniforms worn on the KBA shirts this year each have his initials “GP” to honor him and the ways he improved our league. In his final year he worked hard in setting up the schedule and making sure we got use of the FHSD gyms, the APD registration and Rec Plex gyms. He also worked on the season logistics, tournaments schedules, schedules for practices. gave his communication list and schedules to Dan Flynn while he was living in hospice.
It will probably be a long time before we find another person who will serve as president of the league, serve as the leader of the Senior League and perform so many other duties for the league. Glen passed away on October 30, 2021 and was buried on November 5.
