piney woods of north Louisiana.
He graduated from Linville High School in 1945 and

From the late 1940s to the 1990s, Glen worked as a welder,
pipe fitter, piping and job superintendent in pipeline,
compressor station and paper mill power plant construction,

another, Glen and his family returned to the Farmerville
area in the mid 1960s, where he continued to work for

professional career and focused much of his time on his
favorite things: friends, family, fishing and football. An
avid fisherman, his preferred catch of the day was white
perch (crappie), and he enjoyed sharing his love for the outdoors
with others. He incorporated the Friends of Legion

organization, where for many years he helped provide
bird houses, bird feeders, and bird seed and organized
and helped conduct an annual spring fishing rodeo for
children. Glen was also a dedicated fan of his LSU Tigers
throughout his life.
