that's my brother, Dave Masiero....and I remember Matt Glomb, though I was about 12 years old. Do remember his mom and dad well, though.
May they be having a lovely reunion in Heaven.

Men like Mr. Glomb are what make this country great. They are the back bone of the United States. My deepest regrets to the family.

My condolences to his friends and family. Could the writer be any more ridiculous in their choice of words in the article though??

"While Glomb's sudden death shocked and saddened his longtime friends, they remember him as someone who was always upbeat."

I remember matt as a first class citizen. Although I have not seen him since the high school days, just knowing his line of profession, I know he did great things for all of us. Not just in Berkshire County,but all across this land. Rest in Peace with the Lord, Matt.
