Glen was born June 13, 1941 in Cody, Wyo., the son of Norris and Hulda Gallentine. He spent his early life on the family ranch in Clark, Wyo., where he also attended grade school. The family later moved to Montana and purchased the McLeod Resort south of Big Timber. Glen attended Sweet Grass County High School. He served in the National Guard stationed in California and Washington. On March 23, 1964, he married Jeanne Arlee Gallentine who preceded him in death in 2006 after 42 years of traveling together.
Glen had a passion for life, outdoors, and friends. He worked as a clothing salesman at Western Wear in Missoula before joining and later acting as the branch manager of the PCA in Kalispell, Mont. His love of the outdoors drew him to Ennis, Mont. where he worked as a ranch real estate agent and partnered with Roy Reed in an outfitting business. Years later he purchased the outfitting business and partnered with his son, Rob. He also owned and managed the Camper Corner RV Park for many years. During the outfitting business many people worked with Glen, but more importantly they became like one of his "kids" and lifetime friends. Glen's zest for life could be seen in everything he did and everyone he encountered.
