Glenn and Dorothy were blessed with three children, Stan Clark of Guthrie, and his wife Debbie, Greg Clark of Edmond, and his wife Marty, Sondra Clark Cover of Plano, Texas, and her husband Tim.

Glenn deeply loved and enjoyed spending time with his nine grandchildren, four great grandchildren, and would have loved seeing the four others due in 2013.
