After graduating high school, he attended St. Thomas and served a stint in the U.S. Navy. He began working for International Harvester in St. Paul and his successful career in sales management led him and Ali to make friends in Moorhead, Sioux Falls, Chicago and Bettendorf, IA before returning to Minneapolis-St. Paul, where he was the regional sales / manager in the very same office where he began his career. After retirement, Glenn and Ali enjoyed their retirement in Mesa, AZ. His schedule in retirement included a little golf, a lot of bridge, classical concerts and an early “happy hour.” Glenn loved all sports and considered the sports section the most important part of the newspaper.
