Glenn was born on January 7, 1936 to Leroy King and Dora (Westendorff) King. He married Karen Kay Isham on April 7, 1978 in Belton MO. He lived his life behind the wheel of a truck and other large equipment as he worked many jobs as a driver, spending thirty years with Pitman Construction. When he was not at work his life revolved around his family and raising his three children, Raymond, Brenda and Doug. His other love was music. Glenn would play anything with strings and even at times played things without strings. He spent many Saturday evenings meeting up and playing music.
