Glenn was born Feb. 21, 1955, in Fort Belknap to Kenny Clevenger and Barbara Eagleman. He was raised in Rocky Boy, attending school there. Following his school years, he attended Northern Montana College, majoring in mechanics. He began working as a firefighter, and assisted as an elder care liason, trained as a CDL driver, worked for FEMA during Hurricaine Katrina, and worked for the Chippewa Cree Tribe as a court process server, a police officer, tribal game warden, motor pool director, CHR driver, and was one of the first drivers hired for the tribal transit bus. For the past seven years of his working life, he worked for School District 87 as a bus driver until his health required him to retire.

Our dad was and will always be our hero. He always had a smile or a joke or a handshake for all the people he loved. Dad was kind and compassionate and how can we ever forget all the stories he loved to tell. He would always get that look in his eye when he was going to tell one of us a story. They're some of the most unforgettable stories of our old ones, our ways, and how he was taught in our teachings. Oftentimes, there was much humor in his stories and he kept us laughing. We will never forget our dad or the moccasin footprints he left in our hearts. He was ill for a long time and he was always thankful to God every day, despite his illness. He lived life to the fullest and it was also his wish to have no regrets and to always love one another. And he wanted for all his loved ones and his many adopted brothers and sisters to come and say their goodbyes. He would want all to come sing that last song with him as he makes his journey home. He loved all his people and all his children from all the schools as their bus driver, as well. Until then, we will all ride together again someday, and live life to the fullest with no regrets, is what he would say. We loved our dad and it was his joy to spend time with each and everyone of us. Another one of our old ones went home, he will be sorely missed.
