In 1957, he transferred from the Navy to the Air Force from which he retired in 1966. Glen then took over the family farm in Watson, Minnesota and worked there until it was sold in 1981.

He married Blanche Foote on July 25, 2000.

Glen enjoyed following the grandkids around in his retirement. Hunting game, especially white tail deer, and fishing walleyes were favorite pastimes for him.
