Born in Wayne County on May 7, 1940, he was one of nine children born to the late David Wright and Canary Langston Strickland. Mr. Strickland was retired from the Security Department at Dorthea Dix Hospital. He was a member of New Hope Baptist Church in Clayton. Glenn loved his children and they loved him as well. His grandchildren and his great grandkids kept a smile on his face. He loved sitting on his back deck and watching the birds eat and the squirrels chase each other.
