Reflections for Patrolman Glen Michael Huber

I had the privilege of KNOWING OFFICER HUBER, ALONG WITH MY FAMILY IN ESPANOLA, We were neighbors, behind my uncle's tire shop, OK TIRES . For a couple of years. My father Jack and him , along with many others , had many " famous" poker weekends in our living room. Glen spent lots of his off time , in the summer playing basketball with me, I fondly remember teasing him, because he struggled and sweated doing chin ups. It shook the entire community to the core! I was only 20 yo and never forget. He was a HERO and gave the greatest sacrifice a man can give, to help someone else.
Thank you Officer Glen Huber ~ never ever forgotten. RIP SIR.

I met this giant of a man at our 39th recruit train academy in 1980. His demeanor was that of a leader, friend and mentor. He immediately began helping and guiding his fellow recruits through the academy. I never experienced such an intense "spit shine" class like Glen's! He took it upon himself to help all the recruit class to get through the academy with pride. The man had that intestinal fortitude to get his ideals known. An example of that was when he lead us during military marching, the cadences were a little risque, especially marching under the walking bridge by the chief's office! I miss those PT wrestling matches as we tried to handcuff each other. I miss those stern and encouraging words delivered by kind bother. I miss the man who was the definition of a New Mexico State officer and lived by our motto, "Pro Bono Publico." I will always remember Glen and anticipate seeing him again. God bless Glen and his family.

My wife and I were neighbors of Glen and Arlene while we were living on campus at NMSU. I was Police Science major and recently seperated from the Army. Glen was preparing to go on active duty when he graduated later that year. Glen and Arlene, my wife and myself and another couple, Jerry and Lou spent many weeknight and weekends together. Glen talked about his future as a police officer all the time. We all went to Jurarez one night for dinner after he returned from Ft Benning. I have a picture of all of us there. I was stationed at Clark AB in the Philippines when he was killed. It was heart breaking. After a recent chat with Lou I found this site. Her husband Jerry is buried in the same park as Glen. I am sure they are partying together.

I knew Glen from a short stint he did in Pecos, NM. He helped me out as I was bicycling through the area. We stayed in touch until that faithful day. I think of him often & sorely miss seeing him. He had so much life left to live.

30 years ago, we were so young and willing to serve. Courage was an element we embraced without hesitation. We played ball; we played cards and we talked about God...
The day we lost you the NMSP suffered immensely; "if Glen could die, any of us could." Our loss was indeed small compared to your family. I can only imagine their grieving.
I miss you Buddy. Someone is only truly gone if they are forgotten...and you Sir, will never be forgotten.

Officer Huber-You are remembered on this day, the 30th anniversary of your death. Your family and friend's remembrances clearly showed you were an honorable man, father, friend and Officer. May God continue to bless and comfort your family.

Patrolman Huber,
On today, the 30th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just as a Law Enforcement Officer but for our Country as well when you served with the U.S. Army. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

We’ve felt blessed since becoming aquatinted with this man, Glen Huber, last month. We were asked to organize a liquidation auction of a rural school that is closing, and in the foyer of the school hung a huge US flag and this framed picture on the wall. It caught our eye after recognizing the NMSP uniform, and since we, too, are New Mexicans. Glen Huber was a NMSP officer and sadly was killed in the line of duty after he was ambushed in 1991. The flag was presented at his funeral by President Bush to his mother and hung in his memory at the little school where she had taught. We did a little investigating on Facebook and asked a few friends at NMSP and were able to contact Glen Huber’s daughter, Penny. She is so proud of her dad. We will honor him by sending the flag and the framed memorial to her. It is said that Glen stood 6’ 10”!! Big shoes to fill, I’m guessing. Thank you for your service, Sir.

Jerry as I am preparing to teach OS at the NMLEA tomorrow, I am thinking of you and Glen and the times we shared as police officers... the few times I was assigned to work in Espanola or Rio Arriba were always enjoyed with good friends fond memories. Every time I teach an OS class I talk about you and Glen and the sadness that come over all of LE in NM during your sacrifice. I was told a long time ago - "As long as someone speaks your name you will never be forgotten..." As long as I am around you will never be forgotten...

RIP Brother you are One of New Mexico's FINEST.

I think of you often my friend, the good times we had and the lasting memories we made, like our fishing trip you Rudy Miller and I took to Abique lake, building a back yard fence at my home, painting my old jeep, working the State Fair and many more fun times. You were a good trusted friend, and I will remember you for ever.

As I sit here wiping off tears from reading the great reflections and honorable memories you have blessed upon your family and friends. I must say I never had the Honor of meeting you Mr. Glen Huber would have loved too, I must say I do try and walk with the courage you have displayed in your years of service. I must admit I never Knew who you were until I made a traffic stop on one of your family members in Beavercreek Ohio. What a great woman she was on her way to bible study and shared your story with me briefly. God Bless you and your family forever your brother Officer Majercak.

When a soldier dies on the battlefield, he is surrounded by comrades trying to keep him alive, trying to kill the enemy, trying to achieve the mission. Policemen, especially NM State Policemen, are often alone. They are one against more than one. The "enemy" has the advantage of surprise.

My heart goes out to them all, even when I get a ticket for speeding. It is a lonely and dangerous job. If ever I get in a position of power, I will increase the force to at least two per patrol, and double the salary and benefits, including $750K life insurance policy, mandatory death penalty to anyone who just shoots an officer. I want the nation, the world to respect our State officers, and the world (Mexico cartels) to fear the repercussions of any negative action against them.

Glen Huber is a hero, a man who we should name buildings after. Never forget him, and others like him.

I remember your laugh, your hugs, And your wisdom, you taught me so much in just the short years we had together. I now have my own daughter and she too will learn to fish, hunt, laugh, and be strong like her grandfather. I was driving this evening as the sun was going down and the memory of the day you died came to me before I was told the news I with mom driving home, over the Sandias I saw a shooting star fall from the sky. For some reason I woke up that morning crazy about wanting to see you so when I watched that star fall I remember wishing you were ok. The horrific event that change three family's lives forever had already happend. You soul shines through my sister, myself and now your granddaughter. "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends"
I love you

Officer Glen Huber. I recall my phone ringing with a different ring and answering it and dispatcher Michael Martinez (RIP) in Socorro and him telling me to sit down because he had some terrible news. I think of you often and your name comes up when Kevin Boyd and I talk of the brave men and women who we served with and undoubtedly before the conversation ends, it ends with a memory of you. I remember you in recruit school I picked on the biggest, tallest man in the all of that we remained good friends. It is your bravery and selflessness that made you Glen Huber. You may be gone but not forgotten.

Glen, can't believe its been this long. I recall the news coming to us in the Gulf about the incident. But I didn't hear it was you til a friend of mine wrote me about the circumstances. I missed your services, and never really thanked you for the positive impression you left myself and other officers back in the day. You are still missed and thought about, I pray you are peacefully are in God's station.
