He was preceded in death by parents Robert Roy Trigg and Arlene (nee Johnson) Trigg.
Glen married Janet Meyer in December 1970 in Lake Villa, Illinois, while still in college. They raised their family on Big Cedar Lake and he loved boating and living on the lake. He was a member of the Cedar Lake Yacht Club, and spent summers following his children to regattas in the Midwest and watching sailing on Big Cedar. He was a loving and active father, and extremely proud of all his children.
Glen was a graduate of Warren Township High School in Gurnee, Illinois, Western Illinois University, and Palmer College of Chiropractic, following the path of his two uncles. He practiced Chiropractic in Menomonee Falls for 37 years at Trigg Chiropractic Office and founded Falls Chiropractic Group with two partners in 1995, before retiring in May 2015. He helped many people regain their health naturally and without drugs through chiropractic. He enjoyed downhill skiing, had a passion for golf, and was a member of West Bend Country Club.
He had a strong connection to and deep love for Door County. He was proud of his Norwegian and Scandinavian heritage, and of being the great-grandson of author and historian Hjalmar Rued Holand. His ancestors owned shoreline property in Door County below the Eagle Tower in what is now Peninsula State Park. He vacationed there as a child and many times with family and friends.
His greatest passion was for his wife Janet, his wonderful children, family, and dear friends. He will be deeply missed by all.
