Council leader Gary Porter said: “Everyone connected with South Holland District Council is devastated at the sad news of Glen’s passing.
“I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Glen for many years and he was a much-loved colleague and will be sorely missed.”
A spokesperson for South Holland District Council, said: “Our deepest sympathies are with his wife, daughter, son-in-law and grandson.”
Boston United Football Club also paid tribute to Glen who chaired their supporters club. A statement said Glen died on Sunday after he suffered a heart attack last week.
Chair David Newton, said: “Glen was not only a true supporter of the club and chair of BUSA, but was one of the nicest people you could meet and I always felt better after a meeting or chat with Glen.
“Above all he was also a devoted husband to Pauline, and a loving father and grandfather. Glen will be greatly missed by us all, but at the present time our thoughts and prayers are with Pauline, Amy, John and Harry plus his wider family and friends.”
