He was born on June 12, 1934, in West Bend to the late Glenway and Malinda (nee Quandt) Ehnert. Glen was raised on the family farm in New Fane. He graduated from West Bend High School and later from Valparaiso University where he earned his masters in aeronautical engineering. Glen worked for North American Aviation for many years before changing careers and working for various companies as a mechanical engineer. During that time Glen also enjoyed operating a side business as a professional photographer. 

Glen loved to fly air planes and was a former member of the EAA Experimental Aircraft Association. He was also a former member of a barbershop quartet and current member of the Dairy Land Theater Organ Society, the Wisconsin All-Users Computer Club, and the Vagabond Social Club. Glen was very interested in politics and religion. He loved ballroom and Polka dancing, and enjoyed making home made wine.
