Spirit of Newark NJ passing of Glen Eng executive director

Recommended Posts

It is with sorrow that I announce the passing of Mr. Glen Eng, Executive Director of Spirit of New Jersey Drum and Bugle Corp. on Friday July 27, 2012. As a horn instructor, Mr. Eng has taught the following corps, such as The Bridgemen, Velvet Knights, New York Knickerbockers,and Falcon Ridgemen just to name a few. He was also a member of The Blessed Sacrament Golden Knights Drum and Bugle Corp. In addition to being a great teacher, he was also a great mentor and a good friend. Mr. Eng will be missed by many.

 

Arrangements will be forthcoming.  Please join me in expressing our condolensces to Mr. Eng's family.

 

Thanks

 

Harold Wright

Director

I just got a phone message about this from Jim O'Hara. What a tragedy.

I had known this extraordinary man since we attended Manhattan College together in the late '60s. He was an outstanding soloist in the Blessed Sacrament Golden Knights, where his older brother had also marched.

Glen was a gifted teacher but more significantly, he understood the importance of local, neighborhood, comunity drum corps and championed that concept all throughout his life. He could have taught anywhere but chose to devote his life to those who needed him the most.

Glen Eng was a hero, and that's how I will remember him. I hope to see his dream fulfilled.
