I was born September 28, 1919 in St. David, Cochise County, Arizona. My father is Edward Theodore Lofgreen and my mother is Rebecca Pederson.
I, like Nephi, was born of goodly parents, who I loved and still love dearly, even though both my parents have departed this estate and have returned to the spirit world from whence they came.
I don't like big cities, big crowds, freeways, traffic; I guess really, I'm just a country boy. I enjoy living and being where the air is clean, the country unspoiled, and where I can often be alone.
Closely related to my love for country life is my love for animals. I have always enjoyed being around animals and I even sometimes think there is a little understanding between them and me.
I think I should tell how I came by my middle name of Pehr. My paternal Grandfather was named Peter Anderson Lofgreen and during the latter stages of his life he was unhappy because he hadn't a grandson named after him. My Mother was talking with someone while she was pregnant with me and she just happened to remark, "Can you imagine naming a baby, Peter?" Well, Grandfather overheard that comment and his feelings were hurt even more. When I came along, Mother still couldn't bring herself to name me "Peter" but she named me the Swedish equivalent of Peter which is "Pehr". That's how I got stuck with Glen 'Pehr' Lofgreen.
