Note: l Engineering. It was during the Depression, and he worked as a plumber’s assistant with his father for quite some time. He then began attending River Falls State Teacher’s College where he met his future wife, Grace Linderson. They were married in 1936. After their marriage, Glenn began working for Cleveland Diesel, a subsidiary of General Motors. During World War II, Glenn was deferred from active duty because Cleveland Diesel was deeply involved in building the engines for submarines, and he was considered too valuable to be taken into the service. After the war, Cleveland Diesel began to make engines to run pumps along the vast oil pipelines. Glenn had reached a position where he was responsible for all of the electrical work that went into each diesel engine. He was also good at figuring out the source of anything that went wrong. The company began to use him as their main trouble-shooter. Anytime anything went wrong with a Cleveland Diesel engine, anywhere in the world, and they couldn’t solve the problem with local people, Glenn was sent to find the problem and figure out a solution. He enjoyed this aspect of his work experience more than anything else he ever did in the work field. Glenn and Grace had two sons; Neal, born in 1936, and Dean, born in 1945. Shortly after Dean’s birth, the Lunds moved from Lakewood, Ohio, to North Olmstead. They bought the vacant lot next to the new house, and the back third of it became a Victory Garden. Glenn loved to garden, and through frequent mulching and composting, he turned the hard, slippery Ohio clay into a rich loam about 18 inches deep. In the early 1960's Cleveland Diesel merged with Electro-Motive, another G.M. subsidiary which made diesel engines for railroad trains. Glenn was chosen to get training and work with some of the new developments in this field. The family moved to LaGrange, Illinois. Glenn was very much a family man. Parents and sons enjoyed many family vacations and late-night talks. Vernon sang in the Cleveland Diesel choir, and they were active in the Methodist Church. He was intelligent and practical, and people often turned to him for advice. In social situations he was a quiet man, and Grace usually filled the air time with her more loquacious personality. They loved to play bridge and pinocle. Glenn traded his car in for a new one every year, and logged many miles in their travel vacations throughout the U.S. Glenn and Grace spent their retirement years bowling, square dancing, golfing, and playing cards with good friends in a retirement community at Hot Springs Village, Arkansas.
