He was only forty-one years old when he died in Berkeley on Oct. 29th, but Glenn McQueen had already left a vivid legacy in the entertainment industry. The animation world in general and his co-workers at Pixar in particular are in deep shock and mourning. By all accounts, Glenn had major bragging rights to the cinematic style that became Pixar's signature. He helped create famous characters like Woody in "Toy Story". He was Animation Supervisor on that classic film as well as on "Toy Story II", "A Bug's Life" and "Monsters, Inc."
McQueen's close friends speak fondly of his wicked sense of humor and the fact that he was one of the nicest people you would ever hope to meet. McQueen quoted from a Disney press release circa 1999: "When I'm interviewing someone for a job, the last thing I ask is if they know how to use a computer. It's far more important to have people with a great sense of acting and timing and who know what's appealing. Those things are much more difficult to learn than how to use a computer." The man knew something, no question about it. He was a pioneer, lost to us far too soon.
Glenn left a wife, a four-year old daughter and many, many friends.
