He joined a sister, Betty. Glenn went his first four years of school at Lexington then his family moved to a ranch west of Hardman. He finished his schooling at Heppner. After graduation he joined the U.S. Air Force. Upon receiving his Honorable Discharge, he returned to Heppner, and then moved to Pendleton. It was there he met the love of his life Jo Lyn Van Patten, and they were married on September 22, 1962. They made their home in Pendleton for 31 years, raising three children; Ward Walker of Pendleton, Shannon Walker of Battle Ground, WA, and Chris Walker of Powell, WY, and 11 grandchildren who filled holidays and family celebrations with joy. Glenn was an avid hunter and loved to fish. His idea of the best way to spend time in retirement was to grab a shotgun – load up his Brittany Spaniel "Gold" and head to the mountains in his pickup. He spent a lot of time learning new areas for hunting around Cody. Glenn was a familiar face in the business area around Pendleton. First having his own Insurance agency and then spending a few years selling cars for Comries. Finally he followed his dream and got his Real Estate License working for Eastern Oregon Realty. Glenn was preceded in death by his parents. Survivors include his wife Jo Lynn at home, his three children; Ward, Shannon and Chris and their families, his 11 grandchildren and many members of extended family including his sister Betty Edwards of Pendleton. Glenn was a man of faith, who loved his Lord, his family and his country.

Dear Family...Sorry for your lose. I met Glenn in the late 1970,s when I went to Pendleton to start the Golden West Home plant. When I got to town Glenn was very helpful finding us a home site and helping us with our building plans. He took us on our first Elk Hunt and I have been an elk addict ever since. As our plant management team grew I always sent them to Glenn for their housing needs. Everyone loved him and we became good friends. Glen was a very honest man and his word was his bond. I was lucky to have know him and his wonderful family. He will be missed by all who knew him...Sincerely Yours...John and Doris Clarenbach, Eugene,Oregon
