There will be a private graveside service for Glen.
Glen was born on February 25, 1964 to Edith and William (Bill) Hoglund in the St. Walburg Hospital. A new brother for Robert and John. Glen took his schooling in St. Walburg School where he completed his Grade 8 education. In later years, Glen took his G.E.D. and was very successful in completing it. As Glen joined the work force, he tried a number of careers from bridge building, and apartment management, to setting up well heads and insulating in the oil field. Glen then tried his hand at land surveying with David Minty, and eventually construction work with Walter Looshorn. Glen was a very hard-working man and could motivate those around him. When the job needed to get done, Glen got the job done. Glen loved to hunt and was very successful at it. He was a great hunter and followed in his dad's footsteps. Glen enjoyed the company of others, so he would spend much of his free time being near the ones who meant the most to him. Many of their children called him Uncle Glen. Glen had a free spirit and was very adventurous so his friends named him Half Nuts which later was shortened to Halfy. In Glen's youth, he enjoyed the company of the girls so you never really knew who his girlfriend might be. Then Glen met the love of his life, Charene Harke, and they were married on June 4, 2004. They spent the rest of his life together. Glen accepted Charene's girls, Bre, Brittany, and Nikki into his life and treated them as his own. As Bre and Brittany had children of their own, Glen became a Papa to Bre's son, Brayden, and Brittany's son, Cooper. He was a proud and caring Papa and would give anything he had to those boys. Near the end of Glen's life, his health declined to the point where he lost much of his independence. Glen tried to maintain his independence as long as he could, but it became an increasingly difficult task as time went on. Glen will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him dearly.
