Glenn was born on September 27th, 1937 to the late Harry Robert Moler and the late Genevieve Tritapoe Moler of Brunswick, MD. Glenn attended East End Elementary School. He graduated from Brunswick High School class of 1955. Glenn honorably served in the United States Army Reserve from 1959 to 1965 and received an Honorable Discharge. Glenn was a faithful member of Christian Missionary Alliance Church in Rosemont until it disbanded. He was attending Faith Baptist Church with his son before his illness. Glenn was also a past member of the original Rotary Club of Brunswick, MD.
For almost three decades, Glenn worked with the B&O Railroad YMCA retiring as the Executive Director of the Brunswick location in 1992. Glenn spearheaded many initiatives and took great pride in the services that this organization provided to Railroad employees and the local Brunswick community. To include traveling on a weekly basis to Clifton Forge, VA for nearly four years while the new facility was rebuilt after a catastrophic fire in 1981.
While Glenn certainly missed working at the "Y", he enjoyed; and, was good at retirement. Spending time with his wife Jackie, companion Shih Tzu Holly, traveling, gardening, fishing and just being a Husband, Dad, Brother, Grandfather and Friend to people that relied upon him. Glenn’s silver hair, kind words and welcoming smile were ever-present to family, friends and strangers alike. When the opportunity presented itself, Glenn was a passionate angler and enjoyed the tranquility of getting out on the Potomac River or the local Merryland Park pond.
