Glen Christopherson was born August 8, 1956 to Clair and Ruth (Hostad) Christopherson in Albert Lea, MN.  He grew up and attended school in Freeborn, MN.  On January 31, 1977 Glen was united in marriage to Renae Davis.  To this union two children were born.  The family made home on Glen’s family farm outside of Freeborn, MN.  Glen worked various jobs over the years including the Foundry, Morrison Welding, and Absolute Ag.  After his retirement, he remained on the farm.

Glen was happiest riding his motorcycle, enjoying a beverage with his friends, spending time camping, fishing and hunting, traveling, fixing muscle cars and “fast” cars.  His beloved MGs were very important to him.  He had these lil’ cars and adored them.  He truly enjoyed life.

Glen is survived by his wife, Renae; their children, Adam (Teresa) Christopherson and Abby (Marcus) Hnatyszyn; grandchildren, Ryan, Meha, Evan and Mayleigh; sister, Karen (Craig) Dillavou; brother, Doyle Almquist, and many nieces and nephews.
