Glen W. has broad experience in an equally broad range of interests, all accumulated over a sixty-five year span. As a young boy he worked in the field harvesting hops, and picking and selling blackberries door to door. By the eighth grade he had added working at the local swimming pool, delivering a paper route, and setting pins at a bowling alley. By the time Glen graduated from high school he had spent two summers working for a local farmer, six days a week, twelve hours a day. This work involved irrigation, bucking hay and operating farm equipment.
After high school he began his long career in engineering, starting as a tool engineering drafting trainee and continuing through mechanical engineer of marine elevators, and technical specialist of R&D tooling for advanced aircraft.
Glen had always looked into the ministry and during the 1970s he gained thirty semester house training for the linguistic ministry, and spent two years on the field in Sierra Leone, West Africa.
In 1999 Glen W. received his BA degree in Total Quality Management, from Friends University in Wichita, Kansas.
Before retirement Glen worked as a floor salesman in a home improvement center, selling the full line, but was in charge of the electrical department. He used his long interest in woodworking to obtain a position as sawyer for an exotic hardwood yard, selling wood and crafting customer orders for entry doors, table tops, bed headboards, footstools, drawer fronts, and other assorted items.
Now, into his seventies, Glen W. has slowed to working only two days a week, driving cars for a rent-a-car company and enjoying the desert scenery and passing trains in Southwest Arizona.
