Glenn Eugene Schafer

Glenn was born on April 5, 1949 in Wareham, Massachusetts to Eugene and Pearl Schafer, who were serving in the United States Air Force. Glenn attended numerous schools in the United States and Canada and graduated from high school in Duluth, Minnesota.  Shortly thereafter, he moved to Eau Claire, Wisconsin and worked for the Career Development Center for almost 50 years.
