Marvin Ray Glemming was born October 28, 1946 in Fargo, North Dakota to Arnold and Melva (Pearson) Glemming. He was the third of seven children, graduated from Tower City High School and attended the University of North Dakota - Grand Forks. He entered the United States Navy and served his country onboard the USS Hancock and NAS Whiting Field during the Vietnam War. He was honorably discharged on April 25, 1969.

Upon discharge, he made his home in Milton, Florida, where he married Jean Owens and they later returned to Tower City, North Dakota.
