A man whose body was found in a car in Canyon Country last week is being remembered by scores of high school friends he knew 10 years ago.

Daniel Damon Glass, 28, remains known to only a few in the place where he died, but close to 300 former classmates at Etiwanda High School in Rancho Cucamonga have responded to a Facebook page posted in his honor.

“I was best friends with him in high school,” Jennifer Salas-Muelot told The Signal on Monday.

She played clarinet and Glass played trombone in the acclaimed Etiwanda High School Marching Eagle Regiment, which became the central point in their lives, she said.

“We were so close back then,” she said. “Then things got busy, things changed.”

Organizers of an upcoming reunion at Etiwanda High School are raising money in honor of Glass and other classmates who have died. They’re inviting well-wishers to contribute up until Nov. 4, when Glass would have turned 29.

On Sept. 23, his body was found in a car parked on Lost Springs Road in Canyon Country, said Lt. Fred Corral of the Los Angeles County Department of Coroner.

The body was believed to have been in the parked car for about a week, he said.

Although Glass’ death is ruled accidental, the coroner is awaiting the results of tests, including toxicology tests, before determining a cause of death.

On Thursday and Friday, Roman Catholic Church services for Glass will be held at St. Peter and St. Paul Catholic Church in Alta Loma.

Glass’ parents, who live in Rancho Cucamonga, are asking friends wanting to honor their son to make donations to the marching band he loved.

Meanwhile, expressions of love and respect are stacking up on the RIP Daniel Glass Facebook page.
