Glenn spent the golden years in the golfing community of The Villages where he could enjoy his favorite sport of golfing and enjoy independent living in a small community where everything is within easy accessibility.

Glenn was born February 12,1935 to Howard and Ada Trapp where they lived on the family farm on the outskirts of Stockbridge, Michigan. Glenn was the third in ten children and proud to help care for the farm and his siblings.

These included tornados, Pacific wind storms, Atlantic hurricanes, Midwest ice storms, tsunamis, volcano plumes, and finally tracking the ozone depletion and rise in overall ocean temperatures for a groundbreaking study on global warming. Glenn did it all.

Through this, Glenn lived in places including; several cities in his home state of Michigan, Corpus Christi, Texas, Anchorage, Alaska, and Kwajalein, US Atoll Marshall Islands.  Glenn loved them all. He extensively traveled and visited other countries such as Fiji and Australia.
