Glenn was born on July 14, 1953 to Gerald and Carol (Kyllo) Ingalls in Rochester. He graduated from Mayo High School in 1972. Glenn was a very kind, generous and ambitious person, which led him to have many successful businesses as an adult. At the age of 16, Glenn became the youngest radio announcer in Minnesota for KOLM in Rochester. As an adult, his businesses included Glenn's Towing Service, Glenn and Jerry's Siding and in December 1991 he started Glenn's Motorcoach Tours. He owned and operated Glenn's Motorcoach Tours until his retirement December 2019. In this occupation he found his real passions which included traveling and interacting with customers, which would never have been possible if he had not been surrounded by his wonderful staff. When asked where his favorite place to go was, he always replied, "Wherever people want to go."
On July 29, 1983 Glenn married Marie Haugen. It was not long after they were married that he adopted her daughter, Renae. He loved being her dad and later a grandpa to her children. Glenn did not have much time for hobbies, but he did love a good game of blackjack and riding his Honda Goldwing trike.
Phil was Glenn's best friend since third grade and was like a brother to him. Over the years they went on many adventures together.
On September 14, 2020 Glenn married the love of his life Kris (Barvels) Mulholland in Branson, MO. They only had 6 weeks and 3 days together as a married couple, but they cherished every minute.

I just found out today of Glenns passing. I drove many miles with Glenn when we worked together for several years. My sympathies to Glenns family.
Glenn was a very nice man. He would always say "Good Morning" each day of his tours and ask how things were going. Always would make sure you had the best trip on all of his tours. He will be greatly missed. Sending sympathies to his family and friends.
Glenn would always make sure you had the best trip possible on his tours. Deepest Sympathy to his family and Glenn's Motorcoach Tours Family!
Glenn would always take the time say “ Hello and how’s everything going with me“
Also thank you to Glenn and the rest Glens motorcoach family for taking of Mom and Dad,
Treating them well and always first class
Our sincere sympathy to the Ingalls family. We met Glenn on our very first bus trip to Niagara Falls. We enjoyed his stories and the candy that was always included on his trips. We had the pleasure to have him be the bus driver on our next two trips also. He will be greatly missed. Jerry and Kathy Sample
Grandpa Glenn.... I miss you so much and continue to look for the open garage door so I can come in for a cookie. I also look for you in the backyard but you are not there either. Grandpa Glenn, sleep in peace. I shall come and visit Kris and Uncle Phil when I see his truck there, but I shall still miss you! Love you Grandpa! Your granddaughter, Gigi
sorry for your loss I liked glenn he was a no nonsense guy Ihe will be missed. Steve Koenig
Our sincere sympathy to Glenn's family. A special comment to Renae. You were lucky enough to get a new father when you really needed it as a youngster. As you grew up you were fortunate to have a mother and a father who were strong builders, builders of faith, family and learning to build businesses that sustained the family. Your mother and father were a strong team and you learned well . Our sympathies to you and Fred, Marie and the kids. We wish the best for all in the future. Mary Jo and Chuck Anderson
Our sincere sympathy to the Ingalls family. We always enjoyed Glenn and the great trips he did. He always seemed to enjoy it the most when people were having a good time and enjoying themselves. Keep the smile Glenn as you will be missed.
Steve and Judy Allen
I graduated with Glenn from Mayo HS.
I had not seen him much in recent years, but when I did run into him, he always had a smile, a firm handshake and kind words!
My sincere sympathies and prayers to his wife and family! 🙏
Cheryle and Duane Haugen have a great memory of Glenn. Several years ago our family celebrated Christmas with all the relatives at our house and Glenn volunteered to come as Santa Claus. Everyone was so surprised, especially the grandchildren and great-grandchildren, and everyone had their picture taken with Glenn as Santa. It was a fun family day. Blessed is the memory. Cheryle and Duane.
