Glenn Alan Chequer ’53

Published in Sept. 8, 1999, issue

An avid swimmer, Glenn died May 3, 1999, after an apparent heart attack while swimming at his club in Palo Alto, Calif.

Glenn came to Princeton from New Rochelle [N.Y.] H.S., majored in biology, and met his wife-to-be, Barbara Yingling, senior year through his Cannon clubmate Hank Aldrich. Besides Hank, Glenn also roomed with Neal Christie. Glenn and Barbara were married in 1954. After three years in the Navy, Glenn joined Smith, Kline, & French Laboratories in Philadelphia. In 1969, he left corporate life, went west to Palo Alto, and with three others formed a management consulting firm. He later established his own successful business, Glenn Chequer-Executive Search. He once said, "There's so much to be done and seemingly so little time."

The resourceful Glenn took college courses, painted, became an accomplished cook, did volunteer work, sang in the church choir, traveled extensively with Barbara, met with his family regularly, and swam every day. And as close friend and classmate Bruce Baker observed, "Glenn was a colorful debater who took a position on everything, and in doing so was very persuasive in his arguments." Our heartfelt sympathy to Barbara, son Bradley, and daughters Karen Chequer-Pfeiffer and Lesley Reid.
