Glen lived his early years in Bunkerville, Lathrop Wells, Glendale and Reno, Nevada before settling in Logandale around the age of 10.  He loved sports and excelled in football and basketball and served as the student body president for Moapa Valley High School.  After graduation he attended UNR where he graduated with a degree in agriculture science.  He then joined the Army where he was accepted in to flight school and became a helicopter pilot stationed in Korea. He returned home on assignment where he met and married Shirley Ann Whipple in the St. George LDS Temple on September 5, 1957.  He began his teaching a career at Dixie High School for a year and then moved back to Logandale to teach at Moapa Valley High School, where he taught for nearly 30 years having a huge impact on many of the youth in this valley.  During that time he also farmed and served on the water, irrigation and fair boards, and he was active in the Rotary Club.  He loved being involved in the community and serving others.  Glen also served as Bishop in the LDS church and served a mission with his Shirley for three years with the Moapa Indian Reservation people.
