Glynn Whiddon had a heart attack this afternoon around one, one thirty and passed away.
A lot of people in the Tx palm society knew Glynn, and owe what they have in their collection to his efforts.
He was very knowledgeble about palms,cycads,and plants in general.
He owned and ran Rainforest Wholesale Nursery and Landscaping in Harlingen, Tx.
He had quite a few friends here on the board and will be missed by many people.
He and I had some different views about plants, and other things, but he never hesitated to answer my never ending strings of questions, when we hosted a palm society meeting he gave me several compliments and I was so stoked, that he took notice. I got to do some business with him 2 weeks ago and we had about an hour of discussion on palms,the current market and I got some insight on, the importance of lets not take things too serious, and remember that we are really here for the love of plants, I know I speak for a lot of landscapers and nursery people in this area when I say he will be missed.
Things may come to those who wait, but only the things left by those who hustle.
The way of the transgressor is hard
