Glenn was born October 6, 1947 in American Falls Idaho. His father, Reese was a dry land wheat farmer at the time but was also a dedicated rancher and mine developer. Reese moved his family multiple times as he pursued his ambitions, which gave Glenn a broad and diverse background to draw from when writing songs. On a ranch in the beautiful Big Hole Basin in southwestern Montana, Glenn and his family developed a love for the country and country music. Several years later they moved to Southern California, at the start of the folk music era, where he and his brother Steve were strongly influenced by The Kingston Trio, The New Christy Minstrels, Gordon Lightfoot, Peter Paul and Mary, Bob Dylan and other emerging, popular singers of the time. Glenn, Steve and friends played locally for church socials and about anywhere there was an audience. Glenn was fascinated with the five string banjo and did his part singing and playing in a "jug band" with his friends. He attended college at BYU in Provo, Utah and there met his future wife Patreece. They were married in 1972 and remained in Provo, feeling the area was great for family life. They eventually had four children (all boys) and now thoroughly enjoy three grand children Glenn was so impressed with UPS drivers and their sharp looking brown trucks that he decided to make that a career path. It was hard fast paced work but at the same time enjoyable. His designated route in Heber City Utah is a beautiful mountain area which allowed time to compose songs while driving long country roads. After retirement, he and three friends formed a classic country band and enjoyed playing for many church and community groups, some of which were quite large. After several years the group dissolved, allowing Glenn time to write and create his own CD, OUTBOUND TRAIN.
