Glenn Graham, director of conference sales for the St. Augustine, Ponte Vedra & the Beaches Visitors & Convention Bureau in Florida, passed away on Monday of undisclosed causes. "Glenn was a trusted and successful leader as well as a true friend," said Richard Goldman, president and CEO of the bureau, in an email to industry colleagues on Tuesday night. "His legacy, in addition to his children and grandchildren, is that so many of us will carry him fondly in memories. The stories of conferences, road trips and golf rounds we will tell about Glenn for years to come will serve as living tributes to the good man he was."

Prior to joining the St. Augustine bureau in 2012, Graham held national sales positions at the Pinehurst Resort in North Carolina and Amelia Island Plantation in Florida. He is survived by his wife Patty, five children, 12 grandchildren, a sister and a brother. A memorial will be held at the Renaissance World Golf Village Conference Center on Thursday, Feb. 25, at 2:30 p.m.
