Glenn was born and raised in the foothills of the Oregon coast range on a family farm. God and family were central and played a large role in his development as an individual. He and his wife have three children and currently live and work on the same family farm as well as some outside work for people in the community also. He has been active in the local church all of his life, holding positions from youth leader to church leadership. He is always thankful for the work God has done for and in the lives of people.
