Glenn was born in Clearfield, PA, to Walter Alvin Bailey and Coral Mary (Lawyer) Bailey. He was a long-time resident of Newport News/Hampton, recently moving back to his hometown in Clearfield, PA. He passed on from complications of a massive stroke at Williamsburg Hospice House.

Upon graduation from Williamsport College, Glenn moved from PA to VA in 1972 to work at Newport News Shipbuilding as a nuclear welder in dept.
