A Mass of Christian burial for Mr. Glenn, who was 76 and lived on Hillside Road in Catonsville, was offered yesterday at St. Agnes Roman Catholic Church in Catonsville.

A native of Baltimore, he attended the Polytechnic Institute.

During World War II, he served as a medical corpsman with the 10th Mountain Division and was awarded a Bronze Star for rescuing wounded soldiers under mortar fire in Italy. He was a member of the 10th Mountain Division Association.

He is survived by his wife, the former Rita C. Eberling; three daughters, Frances M. Johnson of Sykesville, Nancy M. Glenn of Hanover and Phyllis A. Blauvelt of Baltimore; a son, Richard A. Glenn of Catonsville; a brother, Louis P. Glenn of Columbia, S.C.; a sister, Mary Skubish of Linden, N.J.; six grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren.
