Glenn Adolph Radermacher, son of Simon and Catherine (Meuwissen) Radermacher, was born November 17, 1926 in Columbia Heights, MN. His family then moved to a farm near Rosen, Minnesota where he grew up and attended St. Joseph's Parochial School in Rosen.

Glenn was united in marriage to Elizabeth Wollschlager on June 25, 1949 in Rosen, MN. From this union ten children were born: Linda, Steve, Tim, Joe, Julie, Glen Jr. "Bud", Kate, Paul, Marty and Mary. Glenn started farming with his Dad after 8th grade. Glenn and Liz lived and farmed 2 miles west of Rosen, where he was beginning to build his dairy herd. In 1962 the family bought and moved to the Conrad Hackert farm 3 miles south east of Rosen. This allowed him to remodel the barn for the dairy setup that he always dreamed of having. He was elected to the Bellingham Coop Elevator Board and served many years.

Glenn belonged to the Men's Choir at St. Joseph's Church and the St Anthony's Men's Society. Glenn also enjoyed bowling, golfing and dancing. He enjoyed watching his children play sports. He also enjoyed playing poker and an occasional trip to the casino.

Glenn and Liz moved to Ortonville in 1983 and retired from farming in 1992. In their retirement years they spent time traveling and playing golf. Glenn was 54 years old when he started golfing. During those golfing years he had 2 "Hole-In-One", and occasionally a sub-par round of golf without ever taking a formal golf lesson.

Glenn left this world to go home to his Heavenly Father Friday evening, June 1, 2012 at Northridge Residence in Ortonville. He will be greatly missed by all his family and friends.

Glenn's family has requested memorials to go to Skin Cancer Research.

Glenn is survived by his wife, Elizabeth of Ortonville; sons: Steve (Genevieve) of Bloomington, MN, Tim (Marsha) of Montevideo, MN, Joe (Kris) of Bellingham, MN, Glen "Bud" (LuAnn) of Bellingham, MN, Paul (Dianne) of Ortonville, MN, Marty (Susan) Marietta, GA, daughters: Linda Spanier of Minneapolis, MN, Julie (Mike) Beninga of Marietta, MN, and Kate Steinke of Andover, MN; 14 grandchildren; 7 great-grandchildren; brother, Simon "Sam" ( Jeannie) of New Hope, MN; sisters: Myra Jean Schmieg of Crookston, MN, Phyllis (Joe) DeRosier of Brainerd, MN, and Kathryn (Ron) Karges of Farmington, MN; and many nieces and nephews.
