He retired from General Crush Stone of Jamesville in 1997 where he had been employed as a crane operator and served as a union
steward.
Glenn loved the outdoors and enjoyed his boats, motorcycles, and snowmobiles. He enjoyed working on projects, whether it was refinishing classic wooden boats, tinkering on his vehicles, or working on his son's race cars. He was devoted to his children, grandchildren, and pets. His great-grandchildren were his pride and joy. Glenn became a Master Mason on 2 Nov 1964 and belonged to the Clinton-Hampton Lodge #347. He had also been a member of Good Shepherd Lutheran Church of Sylvan Beach.
