Gene Glick, who came home from WWII to become Indiana's biggest private developer, dies at 92

Gene Glick, who fought his way across Europe in World War II and came home to become Indiana’s biggest private developer of single-family homes, died today at the age of 92 after a long illness, the Indianapolis Business Journal reports.

Glick served in every major campaign the U.S. Army fought in Italy, France and Germany, and was decorated with the Bronze Star and Combat Infantryman’s Badge. His experiences were among those recounted in Tom Brokaw’s book, “The Greatest Generation.”

Glick and his wife, Marilyn, who died in 2012, founded Gene B. Glick Co., which transitioned into multifamily housing in the 1960s and today manages about 20,000 apartment units in 10 states. They were known for their philanthropy, giving tens of millions of dollars to civic and capital projects in the Indianapolis area during the past two decades. Source: ibj.com
