Glenn was stationed in Oahu, Hawaii, during World War II at Schofield Barracks as a searchlight electrician and an instructor on the maintenance, repair and operations of all types of searchlights used by the Army, Navy and Marines.

After graduation, Glenn taught high school math in Chicago before he taught on the faculty of the Goodman School of Theater and the Art Institute of Chicago, where he was affectionately referred to as “Nick.” He retired after over 30 years of teaching.
Glenn and Violet moved back to Duluth after retirement where he was involved with the Swedish Historical Society, the Duluth Superior Camera Club where he served as the president, and was an active member of Bethany Baptist Church where he loved to help with dramas and plays.
