Early Life Glenn was raised in a coal mining family in Martin county, Kentucky.
His dad Walter worked thirty years in underground coal mining. His mother Eula focused on homemaking, raising five children, and working as a teacher’s assistant.  Martin county was visited by President Lyndon Johnson in 1964 and was publicized as the poorest county in the United States. Pictures of President Johnson on the porch of Tom Fletcher a Martin county resident flooded the media throughout the United States. The Mollette family was a hard working family with Walter spending fifty to sixty hours a week in West Virginia coal mines, Eula managing five children, and the entire family involved in corn, livestock, strawberries,  gardening and tending the family farm.

Glenn’s early childhood was spent helping on the family farm and hanging out at his Grandpa Hinkle’s country grocery store. He grew up playing sports, bike riding, mountain excursions, music and writing. His first childhood jobs were selling Grit newspapers and seeds.
