Upon his return to Iowa in January 1954, he resumed working with his father on the family farm. In 1968, he moved to the New Sharon area and took a job at the Taintor Co-op Elevator. He also did custom spraying for farmers in the area. Later, Glen became a real estate agent with Century 21. He also worked as a car salesman for Van Zee Motors for a number of years before purchasing the business. He renamed it “The Auto Plaza” and operated it with his son, Paul, until the time of his retirement.
