Glenn was a graduate of Wilson High School 1959. He was employed over twenty years with Nucor Steel known as Vulcraft and IFH both in Florence, South Carolina.
Glenn was always trying to help in the community. He served as the basketball and football coach for youth. He was a former Boy Scout Leader and Superintendent.

He could be seen walking along the streets as they marched in parades and won many drill competitions.
Glenn loved his family and did his best to take care of them. In his early years, he was a member of Mount Sinai Holiness Church and New Ebenezer Baptist Church. After his wife passed away, he would attend and was a member of The Embassy of Jesus Christ and could be found at Light of Christ Ministries. He loved Bible Class and Sunday School. Glenn loved to read, watch TV- his favorite show was Star Trek, working on word puzzles and mind benders; most of all he loved to fish.
