Glenn Arthur Waller, 65, was born and raised on a dairy and vegetable farm in Post Falls, Idaho. He attended Post Falls High School, participating in basketball, football, and 4-H club, graduating in 1963. He received an agricultural engineering degree from the University of Idaho in 1967 and relocated to Portland, Ore., to work at Hyster Co. Accepting a position with Key Equipment Co., Glenn relocated in 1972 to Milton-Freewater, where he started a family.

In 1983, Glenn, along with a handful of others, founded Key Technology Inc. and through various roles he helped revolutionize the food processing industry by bootstrapping Key from a small equipment
manufacturer to the worldwide leader in automated inspection equipment. Upon retirement in 2005, Glenn relocated to Battleground, Wash., becoming an active member of the Lewis River Rotary Club. He
spearheaded Rotary International projects in Thailand, Guatemala, Indonesia and Honduras. Glenn enjoyed traveling, fishing, laughing with family and friends, and playing with his grandson.

Glenn will be remembered for his kindness, generosity, and infectious laugh.
