Following graduation from Gloucester High School in 1982, Glenn served 4 years in the United States Air Force. He was stationed in Caribou, Maine and Germany among his duty stations. He was able to travel throughout Europe, as well as experience the coldest weather in the continental U.S. in Caribou, Maine, he said. After serving in the Air Force, Glenn attended Salem State College and received his B.A. in Business Administration. He also took courses in securities trading while working at Morgan Stanley and John Hancock financial services. For many years, Glenn was a very successful Senior Account Executive at EBSCO Company in Ipswich, with a sales territory that covered much of Eastern Canada and the Northeast. He enjoyed his many business trips to college and university libraries in Toronto, Nova Scotia, and other Canadian cities.
In addition to his success and interest in business, Glenn enjoyed playing many sports, including basketball where he and his brothers and friends played many brutal games of basketball at Swinson’s Field court, and pond hockey at the Goose Pond in East Gloucester. He also enjoyed golf, and played with his brothers and friends up until several weeks before his passing. In addition to his love of sports, he also had a passion for music, and was the lead singer in several local bands in Ipswich, including Muscles of Justice and Dirty Glove, and enjoyed singing Karaoke. In 2007, he and guitarist and band mate, Ed Hetner, wrote and recorded the song “Moving On.” Over the past 10 years, Glenn had found the love of his life, Becky, bought a house he loved, enjoyed his work, and with his dogs, Riley and Maggie, and Alex and Chelsea, lived a happy, satisfied life. Glenn had many, many friends owing to his fun loving, good hearted, and social nature. He will be sorely missed and never forgotten by his family and friends.
