  • Notes 
    • “Glenn attended public school in Cameron, Texas where he excelled in athletics and academics. He attended Wharton County Junior College on a football and baseball scholarship until serving on a tour of duty in Panama with the Army. Afterwards, he attended the University of Texas at Austin on a baseball scholarship and graduated with a B.B.A. route to engineering degree in 1959. Glenn’s early professional career centered in the apparel industry with a brief, but educational, stint in the funeral home business. In 1975 he put to use the years of industrial engineering and management experience and opened his own apparel business in Waco, Texas called VR Fashions. This business closed in 1996. Glenn and his son Karl operate Ozark Leather, a wholesale distributor of western goods, located in Waco, Texas. His son Kurt is CEO of the Mission, Texas warehouse and three plants in Mexico. Glenn is active in his community and enjoys coaching his children in athletics, leading and teaching at St. Matthew Lutheran Church, participating in the Masons, Shriners, Jesters, and Texas T’s (drivers of mini-model T’s). He also enjoys helping others start businesses of their own. His philosophy concerning business is that ‘a business is not run by one person. Businesses are run by teams. He sees his main job as helping people set objectives, to understand them and then execute them.’”
