Glenn was born in Cedarburg on May 28, 1929, the son of the late
Walter and Elsie (nee Schneider) Frank. Glenn was united in marriage
to Eunice (nee Jaeger) on June 30, 1951, at First Immanuel Lutheran
Church in Cedarburg. Glenn was a member of the Men’s Club at First
Immanuel Lutheran Church, vice president and director of Wisconsin
Public Power Inc., a member of the Cedarburg Fire Department and
Ducks Unlimited. Glenn enjoyed hunting, fishing, gardening, cooking
and attending his grandchildren’s many events.
Georgia Tech and Marquette University both offered Glenn scholarships
to play football. Glenn chose Marquette to be closer to home. His
love of football and position at Cedarburg Light & Water enabled him
to be instrumental in acquiring lights for Friday night football.
Following 44 years of utility service to Cedarburg Light & Water,
Glenn retired from his final role as manager in 1994. Under Frank’s
leadership, the utility saw tremendous growth and maintained top
level service to its customers. Moreover, his help in forming WPPI
helped Cedarburg become a model for other Wisconsin municipalities.
