He excelled in school and was the captain of his grade school basketball team leading them to a State Victory the very first year. Glenn was a 1980 Graduate of Huron Valley Lutheran High and 1984 Graduate of Dr. Martin Luther College in New Ulm, Minnesota.

Glenn was the founder of the FISH @ The Wick Charity Golf event to benefit the FISH Organization in Hale. Glenn led his tribe in raising money for those in need in his community. Glenn first blog "9 Lessons from the 8th Floor" chronicled his cancer journey. His blog inspired people around the world and encouraged those fighting cancer to push forward and believe.
