Glenn was born on April 28, 1934 in Denver Colorado, to Emil and Izeta Knutz. Glenn joined the Air Force in 1954 right after getting his GED in California. Glenn spent the next several years in the military until his honorable discharge in 1962.
Glenn had a passion for airplane and 18 wheelers, or which he made it a career, until he retired at the age of 78. Glenn would state regularly that is his legs still worked he would still be driving.
Glenn was a very loving and giving man. He was honored to have found the love of his life, Martha who passed of cancer.
Glenn was fortunate enough to have find his 2nd soul mate, Arlene (Jewell) some years later, of which passed in February 2022, also to cancer. Of which Glenn moved to Idaho shortly thereafter.
Glenn spent his final days making models of semi-trucks and traveling to his favorite place, Pine, Idaho, where he just sat outdoors and enjoyed the scenery, and spent time with his favorite nephew Sean (Anna) Knutz. Glenn enjoyed nothing more than family. He loved to watch the Great great nieces play. He loved them so much.
