They were married for 67 years and traveled together to Germany, Italy, Austria, Switzerland, Holland, Belgium, France, Michigan, Virginia, Arizona, Texas, and Hawaii. Glenn also served in Korea and Vietnam. Glenn's faith in Jesus Christ was central to his life. He was actively involved in the church wherever he was stationed, and many times served as a Deacon or Elder. Glenn and Evelyn loved nothing better than adventures on the road, especially hauling their travel trailer across the country and up to Alaska. Even in this last year, they made a trip to Alaska and Michigan.
