Glen was born May 6, 1927, in St. Anthony, Idaho, to Wilmer F. and Henrietta (Logan) Green.

He married his wife, Betty Jean Grow, in 1948.

He was a U.S. Navy veteran, trained in refrigeration in Milwaukee, WI, and served on a ship, the USS Princeton out of San Francisco, during WWII, stopping at ports in Indonesia and China. He was excited to witness the inventor of the helicopter, Mr. Sikorsky, land the first-ever helicopter on the ship where he was serving.

After his discharge, he continued his career in refrigeration, first in Idaho, and then moving to Great Falls to work for the Paris of Montana. He came to Havre to work for the H. Earl Clack Co. and then moved on to start his own business, Home Appliance Service Co. Glen later worked as District Manager for the Prudential Insurance Company in Great Falls and Havre.

He was Exalted Ruler of the Elks Club, was in the Jay Cees, and many other organizations, always giving back and helping the community of Havre.

He will be remembered as a man who could build anything, even his own wood Chris-Craft motorboat for his family to water-ski behind. He loved Fresno Lake and he loved the Missouri River, and helped guide the Sunset Magazine people to capture the Lewis & Clark exploration expedition route on film. He enjoyed snow skiing, archery, roller-skating, hunting, bowling, and taking care of his acre of lawn.

Glen and Betty moved to Salt Lake City for business, where they remained for a number of years before returning to Havre to retire.

He was preceded in death by his parents and brothers, Cleon, Ariel, and Eldon.

Survivors include his wife Betty; daughters, Becky (Doug) Ross, Christine (Art) Wilkesen of Utah, and Suzi (Bob) Bingham of Idaho; grandchildren, Joe and Jamie Ross, and Michael, Jacklyn and Shaunte Wilkesen; and great-grandchildren, Ayreanna, Spencer, and Brock Ross, and Waylon and Baily Wilkesen.
