He was a graduate of Fayetteville High School and attended North Carolina State University. Glenn started a banking career with First Citizens Bank in Fayetteville, and then worked with The Scottish Bank which later became First Union National Bank in which he retired after 40 plus years of service. After returning to his hometown of Fayetteville, Glenn worked part time as a consultant for First Capital Bank of Laurinburg until his full retirement in 2017. He also served in the United States Army Reserves 300th Special Forces Detachment at Fort Bragg.
Glenn loved the Lord and his church, Highland Presbyterian, where he was ordained as an elder and taught the Williams Fellowship Bible Class for many years. Capps was very active in the Masonic Fraternity, and a Past Master of Creasy Proctor Lodge-679 in Fayetteville.
