PSTC Mourns Loss of Glen Anderson
Glen Anderson It is with great sadness that we share with you news of the loss of our dear friend, former PSTC Executive Director and Hall of Fame member Glen Anderson. After a long battle with cancer, Glen passed away peacefully on March 10, 2017, with his loving family by his side.

Glen was PSTC's Executive President from 1982 - 2012. After his retirement in 2012, the Technical Seminar's Opening Session was appropriately named the "Glen Anderson Opening Session" to honor his commitment and dedication to PSTC. 

Glen's passion, vision and enthusiasm were instrumental to PSTC's success today.  His ability to create task forces and committees were vital to establishing some key initiatives for the organization.

Glen was a great leader and cherished friend to all who knew him. He recently reached out to PSTC staff and expressed the following: "We all have gifts to share with others, so do not hold back, but reach out and give generously to all who you touch." 

Anyone who met Glen - both inside and outside PSTC - can surely attest that he embodied that mindset. We ask you to join us in keeping Glen's family and friends in your thoughts at this sad time. 

In his memory, PSTC recently made a donation in Glen's name  in support of  HSCT/myeloma research  to the  Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine .

The memorial service will be held on Saturday, April 8 at 11 a.m. at Lutheran Church of the Ascension in Northfield, Illinois.
