Glen was born January 14, 1935 at Fairfax, OK the youngest son of Ewell Rehorn, a life long employee of Texaco, and Rosa Rehorn, in the oil fields of Osage County at Naval Reserve which is near Fairfax, OK. He was the third of three children, his eldest sister Sarah Margaret Rehorn Smith, deceased, of Bartlesville and Keystone Lake and MAJ (Ret.) Henry Rehorn who currently resides near Mannford, OK. Dr. Rehorn was a Fairfax Red Devil football and baseball player in 1951. He was an All Conference and All District guard at a total weight of 170lbs. He was an accomplished baseball player and later in life excelled even more in teaching his sons how to play both football and baseball. He married Barbara Jean Brandenburg of Ralston, OK, a resident of rural Ralston, OK, on October 6, 1956 and remained married until his death. He left Oklahoma to work with Phillips Petroleum in Borger, Texas before joining the Army March 19, 1958 serving with the 1st Armored “Hell on Wheels” in Ft Hood, TX until 1959. After his enlisted stint in the Army Dr. Rehorn attended Officer’s Candidate School in Ft Sill, OK and was commissioned as a 2LT Combat Engineer officer. One of his favorite highlights of his military career was his command time of the National Guard’s 45th Engineer Company in Stillwater, OK. The men of the unit were World War II and Korean War veterans who Glen respected and felt honored to lead. He eventually retired as a Lieutenant Colonel in the United States Army Reserve but felt his command of the men in the 45th was an unsurpassed honor.

He returned to Oklahoma State University to complete his Doctorate’s degree in Education and upon graduation was offered a position to start a new education program at Montclair State College in Montclair, NJ.
