Glenn was born on January 21, 1939, in Saranac Lake, NY the son of the late Moreland L. and Bessie Jewtraw Flagg. He attended Saranac Lake High School. Glenn married Theresa Liberty on May 12, 1962 at St. Alphonsus Church with Rev. Lamatie officiating. He served in the Army Reserves for eight years. Glenn worked for the Veterans Administration in Tupper Lake for 6 years before working for NYS Sunmount. After 36 years, Glenn retired in 1995. Glenn was a kind, loving, generous man with a great sense of humor. He had a passion for gardening and giving to his community. When Glenn began work at Sunmount he became BSA’s Troop 100 leader and then proceeded to work with Tom Jermano in orchestrating a marching band. In 1973, he was instrumental in the growth of the Tupper Lake Youth Hockey Association, coaching until he was 62. He served many in the community in various ways throughout his life, but most importantly, along with his wife, he raised their five children and several foster children in Tupper Lake and lived for his family.
