Glyn was born on December 30, 1943 in Nashville, TN and was one of nine children of Paul Taylor and Naomi Blackwell. He served our country in the United States Army, being stationed in Germany and Korea.

For a period of time, he was a co-owner of MT Contractors, and worked with his brother, Roy, for over 10 years in his siding company.
Following his working years, Glyn began to move toward returning to a simpler life. He obtained a cabin near Charlotte, TN where he began enjoy the beauty of the flowers and gardens he planted, along with the pond on the property.
