He attended country school near Hamlin, Iowa, and after the 8th grade, moved with his family to Guthrie County, Iowa.
He started working when he was 12 years old helping his parents farm. Before he spent the majority of his life continuing
to farm, he also worked at the landfill, hauled for a creamery, hauled livestock in Iowa and the surrounding states, and
Glenn loved horses and everything about them. He belonged to a horse riding club and a thoroughbred racing
His enjoyments included hunting, time on the farm, riding his 3-wheeler, spending time with his kids and
grandkids and horse races (his favorite horse of all time was Secretariat). His really fun times were spent with his
buddies tipping a few beers or having a nip of Tennessee moonshine every now and then. Glenn loved to meet new people
and had a heart big enough to help anyone at anytime.
