Glen was employed at Kansas City Power and Light (KCP&L) as a Lineman and retired from there in 1996 after 33 years of service. It was a career he loved and spoke so highly of that he inspired four family members from the next two generations to follow in his footsteps. While working at KCP&L, he and Sharon opened up Clark’s Greenhouse where they sold countless plants for nearly 25 years. Glen and Sharon enjoyed traveling and after retirement they spent many winters in Arizona, Texas and Florida. They also enjoyed taking their grandkids on yearly trips. Camping was a favorite and for several years they were members of the Kansas City Airstream Club. He spent several years volunteering with Missouri Conservation where he shared his love for the outdoors with young children teaching them to fish.
