Yes, he did. In lieu of flowers or donations, Glenn Beck has requested that an act of kindness be done to honor his father and spread the “universal message of love.”
Mr. Beck has been posting poignant and powerful messages on his Facebook page.

The full message via Facebook:
The Lord blessed us greatly. I have always shared my life with you. But the biggest sorrow in my life has taken place over the last six years. While people saw the public face only a handful saw us meddle through the hardest and most painful events in my family’s story.
It was put to rest today just after noon pacific time as my father went home. He had been in a coma since Thursday right after I saw him.
In the last few days we witnessed the veil opening. An amazing story I will share maybe Monday if I am ready.
Each child was given exactly what they needed to close this chapter with what they needed and my sisters lived the end of ‘The Snow Angel’.
Much to share with you soon.
But know this: The Lord lives and He loves each of us.
Miracles happen and He wants to bless all of us. Give Him all the credit and praise.
Glenn Beck~may your Dad rest in peace… http://t.co/X3jvUsSohq
