He was born in Little Falls, on April 4, 1944, a son of the late George Bogardus and Pauline (Goutremont) Waufle and attended Little Falls Central Schools. He proudly served our country enlisting with the United States Army in 1964 and receiving an honorable discharge for his service. He fought in the Vietnam War and served special forces with the Green Beret. His last professional occupation was working contracting, namely with a roofing company and even building cell-phone towers. Glenn found his niche working with animals and particularly Rottweilers, which together with his late wife Joan he bred and raised. Glenn loved and took much pleasure in reading, fishing and listening to and singing along with George Strait and any country music.
