Glenn was born July 15, 1920, in
Chinook, where he was raised and attended school. He held numerous jobs
throughout his life. As a young boy, he rode racehorses in the summertime,
and worked on the railroad and at the sugar beet factory in Chinook. He
married Arlene Goodheart in 1940, and later moved to Browning to help his
father on the Finley Ranch, where they raised sheep and cattle. Arlene died
in 1950. After leaving the ranch in the early 60's, he became a tavern owner
in Babb, Mont., and it was during this time he met Pat Grey. They were
married in 1968, and moved to Lethbridge, Alberta, where Glenn worked as a
salesman for several years.
He and Pat loved to travel,
visiting many places in Europe and the U.S., and spent many winters in Apache
Junction, Ariz. After Pat's passing, he stayed in Canada until his illness
brought him to be close to his daughter, Terri, in Great Falls.
He was preceded in death by his
wives, Arlene and Pat; a brother, Raymond Finley; a daughter, Sandra Hauck; a
sister, Alice Nicholes; and his parents Ray and Victoria (Spinner) Finley.
