Born the first of six children to Lewis Christian and Reba Sessions Shields in Park City, Utah on October 23, 1926. Glenn had many fond memories as a young boy growing up in Park City, stories that he loved to share with his family all throughout his life. When Glenn became a young man he joined the United States Navy and served in the South Pacific during World War II.

Glenn and Elaine lived for a time in Park City during the early years of their marriage but later moved to Layton when Glenn became employed at Hill Air Force Base as a Mechanical Engineering Technician and Engineering Drafter from 1950 until 1982. Glenn and Elaine's family life gave them three sons, Ronald, David and Brian.
Glenn was an honorable member of public office serving 15 years as Mayor of Layton City which began in January of 1970. In his third term he began serving on the Board of Directors for the Davis North Medical Center on Antelope Drive in Layton.
Glenn loved the outdoors and spent many memorable years hunting and fishing in the Utah Mountains which he cherished with his family. In his final hours of life Glenn expressed his great love for his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. We, as a family also express our great love in return to this wonderful man and are proud to have him touch our lives.
