Ath the end of WWII, Glenn returned to Nashville to attend Vanderbilt University. After meeting the lovely Georgia, he left the University to work for McKesson & Robbins as a pharmaceutical salesman for 15 years. After leaving McKesson, Glenn found his dream job with Merrill Lynch where he thrived as an account executive and eventually became a vice president. He reluctantly retired at the age of 70. After retirement, Glenn took up trap shooting winning many awards. He was a member of the Nashville Gun Club and the Okoboji Indians, a shooting group formed in 1898, his name was Chief Ticker Tape.

We knew where to find him every weekend and it was usually on his tractor. Visitation will be 10:00AM – 12:00 Noon Saturday, April 13, 2024 at Williamson Memorial Funeral Home.
