Glenn was born in Lyman, WY to Glen and Mary (Pierce) Rollins. He served in the U.S. Army during the Korean War and received the Combat Infantry Badge. He married Mae Althoff on October 15, 1955 in St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Hawthorne, CA.

Glenn loved a good conversation. He felt proud when he made others laugh. As a young man he was a semi-pro bowler and collected a shelf full of trophies. He was also an avid hunter and fisherman with antlers on the wall. He’d say he had the nicest lawn in town and happily spent hours each week on his riding mower. He was a man of good cheer and others felt better after spending time with him.

He is survived by his children, Tom (Sherry), Marie (Tom) LaForce, Cheryl (Bob) Stein, Elaine (Russ) Kalthoff; grandchildren, Rachel (Charlie) Goldberg, Adam (Tiffany) Rollins, Calvin Kalthoff, Paul and Gretchen Houston; great grandchildren, Nora and Annie Goldberg and Bennett Rollins.

He is preceded in death by his parents; wife, Mae; grandson, Aaron; brothers, Reynold, Louie and sister, Zella McHale.
