Glenn West, Jr. was born on September 11, 1941 in Laramie, Wyoming. His early years were in Billings, Montana. In 1965, he joined the U. S. Army where he served two tours in Vietnam where he was awarded the Silver Star, Bronze Star and Purple Heart. After his military service in 1972, he moved his family from Missoula to Ennis, Montana. Ennis became his sanctum for his profession as a river guide. Glenn was also an accomplished wildlife artist, bringing his love of fishing and wildlife to the canvas, winning him the New Jersey Trout Stamp contest honors, as well as recognition and admiration from his peers as one of the premier wildlife artists in the Northwest. Wanting to help educate fellow anglers, he was instrumental in developing the Montana State Game Fish Identification Guide, allowing fishermen of all ages and skill levels to recognize species of trout in the rivers he guided. Glenn West also shared his experience through a weekly column in the Billings Gazette.
