Glenn Rightmire- nominated by his wife Suzie Rightmire:
My husband, Glenn Rightmire, is my hero. His entire adult career has been dedicated to serving his community - with a "dual career" - first, as a firefighter/paramedic with the City of Houston, from which he retired from in 2009, with over 32 years of service; and, second - at the same time and currently, a career in law enforcement, with now nearly 40 years of service.
Whether, riding in an ambulance or a patrol car, my husband has dedicated his life and career to serving others in need - no matter the holiday, no matter the weather conditions, no matter the long hours - extra manpower needed or hazardous duty - no matter the "atmosphere" of the people and their attitude towards either of his professions ... he has always severed with compassion and honor.
Not only is he my hero - but two of our sons have followed in his footsteps - as firefighter/paramedics also with the City of Houston - they with nearly 11 and 7 years of service. My husband is an amazing father, grandfather and role model - he is dedicated to our faith, family and community.
