  • Mock, Glenn

Glenn "Pinky" Mock 18-year member of Local No. 42 passed away suddenly at home on November 13 2015. Loving Husband, Father and Grandfather Pinky was the long time props head on the Broadway and Operas series at the Orpheum Theater in Omaha plus various other positions on other shows throughout the Local’s jurisdiction. Known for his tell-it-like-it-is attitude Pinky would insult you into a friendship and back up his attitude with professional and competent work. Job Steward, Department Head, Executive Board member, senior lift operator, great stagehand Glenn Pinky Mock will be sorely missed.
