He was born February 12, 1933 to Harold and Bertha Anderson at the family homestead in McAllister, residing there until the time of his death. Glenn was a 1952 graduate of Wausaukee High School. In 1953 he entered the United States Army, serving 2 years of active duty until 1955, receiving the Korean service ribbon. A proud veteran, he remained part of the Army National Guard until 1960.
In 1958, Glenn married the former Marian Ewald who he said was the best thing that ever happened to him. In earlier years Glenn sailed the Great Lakes and sailed under the Mackinac Bridge during its construction. He worked briefly in West Bend before returning to McAllister. He was employed at Scott Paper Co. in Marinette while continuing to work on the Anderson family farm.
