He was 88 years old. He was born on November 23, 1928, in Bell, California, to Thomas and Doris White. He spent most of his life in California and decided to move to the Seattle area in 2013 where he resided at Marica's Assisted Family Home in Bellevue. Glen grew up in Bell, California, where he met Josephine Dalu at Bell High School and later married. He played sports in high school and remained active until he was diagnosed four years ago. He enlisted in the U.S. Army in 1950 and was stationed in Munich, Germany, where he lived with his wife, Josephine and his new daughter, in the small suburb of Dachau. He left the Army with the rank of staff sergeant in 1953. His career included roles at U.S. Steel, North American Rockwell Corporation, The Ralph M. Parsons Company, and Rockwell International.
