LBYD Mourns the Loss of Founder Glenn Bishop

On July 24, 2019 LBYD lost a founding member of our company, Mr. Glenn Bishop. To his colleagues he was more than an engineer, he was a leader, a mentor and a friend. His passion and dedication to the engineering community is evident in the many professional associations that he served and the numerous accolades he received during his career. Mr. Bishop will be remembered fondly for his positive attitude, his witty humor and his kind heart. While we mourn the loss of this extraordinary man, we are grateful for his lasting positive influence and honored to continue the legacy he has left behind. Thank you to everyone that has shared their condolences and support, your kindness is valued and appreciated.
