Glenn was born in Kalamazoo, Michigan on January 19, 1888. He joined up in Edmonton, along with his brother Frank, in July of 1915 and listed his trade as “homesteader.” Prior to the first world war, Glenn had served for three years in the American infantry and four years in the navy. His medical records note that part of his left middle finger was missing, having been chopped off with a meat cleaver in 1911, at which time he was in the navy. Glenn suffered from shell shock in September 1916 and was promoted to Lance Corporal on October 23, 1918. Glenn eventually moved to Washington, where he died on May 25, 1945.
