Glen was born on May 8, 1936 to Harry and Dorothy Ogle in Perkinstown, where he lived his entire life. Glen attended the one-room Lincoln School in Perkinstown. He graduated from Hannibal High School. On April 3, 1954, he married Lois Smith of Jump River, who survives. They made their home in Perkinstown where they raised their five children.
Glen is preceded in death by his parents, brothers Arnold and Gerald Ogle, and son Randy.
Glen is lovingly survived by his wife Lois of sixty years, his children Jacqueline (William) Rosa, Holly (Ron) Sromek, Chuck (Sally) Ogle, and Tammy Ogle (John Wehe). He is also survived by his ten grandchildren Tonia (Dave) Sromek-Fierke, Travis Sromek, Rebecca (Eric) Zuleger, Billie (Brian) Schilling, Aaron (Erin) Day, Emily (Aemus) Balsis, Dillon (Kendall) Immormino, Jesse Ogle, Roxanne Ogle, Mitch (Dana) Jaeger and ten great-grandchildren. In addition, he is survived by his five sisters Iris Faude, Otillia (Lewis) Kohn, Marlene (Norman) Skabroud, Elva (Bob) Drier, and Susan (Jerry) Krug and two sisters-in-law, Louise Ogle and Elloise Zach.
Out of high school, Glen worked in the automotive industry for Fischer Body in Lansing, Michigan for a season. He returned to the area and spent two years at Hurds. In 1956, he began working for the DNR watching for fires in the Jump River fire tower. Then he started building them. This was the beginning of his lifelong tower career. In the early 1970's, he founded OK Tower Service and became known for his relentless work ethic. OK Tower built everything from DNR lookout towers to one of the tallest towers in the world, a 2,000' tower in Alvin, Texas. His work and reputation took him all over the world including the Aleutian Islands, Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and Somoa, where he spent a month dismantling a tower with a crew of six Samoans. He finally retired after he climbed his last tower in 2012 at the age of 76, at which time his daughter, Tammy took over OK Tower Service.
Glen was also known for his passion for the outdoors and unforgettable guide services. For years, he kept a pack of hounds for coyote, bobcat and bear hunting. He also guided hunters who sought pheasants, ducks, geese and just about anything you could hunt. Glen also loved to take his grandkids on many fishing and hunting adventures. Not to mention, he and Lois raised trophy whitetail deer for many years.
Glen and Lois kept a boat, the Circus Circus, in Valdez, Alaska for the past 14 years. They entertained hundreds of family and friends in the pursuit of halibut and salmon. A notable moment in Glen's life was performing the marriage ceremony of his granddaughter Tonia on his boat in Valdez.
He had an instinctive understanding of nature and loved of the outdoors. His memory will live on in his apple orchards where he loved to plant and graft trees. Glen will forever be known for his ability to tell a joke anywhere, anytime.

She was a member of the Barnes Fire Department. Linda worked at Water Edge Nursing Home for several years as a Certified Nursing Assistant and was very proud to be helping the residents.
Linda and Colin along with a couple of their friends have been saving and hauling aluminum cans year around and then they would purchase toys and donate them to the Operation Rudolph program. These toys were given to kids in the Drummond School area so they could get a little something extra, if needed, at Christmas time. Linda always had an inspirational smile and always had time to help someone. She loved to travel, go camping, and fish.
