He was a member of St. Paul's United Church of Christ, the Wenona Lodge #344 A.F. & A.M., and the Minonk American Legion Post # 142. He owned and operated Chicago Butchers Red Fox where he worked for 36 years, retiring in 1991. After he retired, he delivered flowers for 20 years for County Florist in Minonk. Glen was known for his humor, his laugh was contagious and never knew a stranger. He enjoyed woodworking and making things for others. He will be greatly missed.
