Throughout his life, Glenn always valued a good education. He began his in Firth, continued it at the University of Idaho in Moscow, and finally, Idaho State University where he studied engineering. Glenn was a proud patriot. He joined the army early on, training at Fort Lewis in Washington, and then, was transferred to Austria where he bravely served during the Korean War.

He was a member of the St. Johns Masonic Lodge #52 and was also a founding member and lifetime supporter of the Riverview Grange. He was a recently-baptized member of the Bethel Lutheran Church in Firth and found a lot of happiness and peace within it. He worked for Westinghouse on the INL site for 32 years and spent the rest of his time tending diligently to his family farm, his favorite work.
He is survived by his children Sheryl, David, and Janet; fourteen grandchildren; forty-four great grandchildren and 10 great-great grandchildren.
He was preceded in death by his parents, brother Dallas Cederberg, two sisters Vera Gentillon and Caroline Towne, his loving wife Betty, son Steven Lloyd Cederberg, son-in-law Wesley High, and two great-grandchildren, Ethan Johnson and Blakelyn Cederberg.
