He was born on September 17, 1926, in Buford, Arkansas to Charles A. and Daine Hopper. He was the 7th child in a family of 10 children. Glenn is preceded in death by his parents, and all of his siblings. He is survived by his loving and dedicated wife of 68 years, Bettye Hopper, and his three children and their families.
