91, of Becker, MN passed away on September 16, 2021 at the St. Cloud Hospital. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather, friend to many, a man of great faith, and a great joke and story teller.
Born in Sumner, Nebraska on December 5, 1929, Glenn was one of Harry and Hazel (Knox) Lahm’s eight children. He learned the value of hard work, growing up in a large family during the Great Depression and Dust Bowl years. His strong work ethic continued throughout his life until his health declined in recent years.
Following graduation from Sumner High School, he worked locally until entering the military in 1951 where he served as an Army clerk in Japan during the Korean War. After his return, he married Helen Anderson on March 25, 1954 in Becker, MN. Together they had 3 children: Susan, Steven and Ryan. They were married for 47 years until Helen’s death in 2001. In 2007, Glenn married Loyce Morris in Becker, MN, where they lived and were active in their church and community.
Glenn was a committed church member who willingly served in many roles. One of his loves was to work with young children, especially in Awana Cubbies at church and at the local elementary school as a Foster Grandparent. He leaves a legacy and will be missed.
Left to cherish his memory is his wife, Loyce; his daughter, Susan (Mike) DeLong of Milwaukee, WI; his sons, Steven (Ann) Lahm of Minneapolis and Ryan (Stacy) Lahm of Lino Lakes; 16 grandchildren; 5 great-grandchildren; brothers, Stan (Lucille) Lahm of Ames, IA, and Roger (Karen) Lahm of Spirit Lake, IA; sister, Connie (Robert) Hansen of Chicago, IL; Loyce' daughters, Lynel (Tim) Johnson of Becker and Esther Kaiser of Lino Lakes; many nieces, nephews, family and friends.
