Ezra was born in rural Berwick, Kansas on February 1, 1930, the son of Louis Sr. and Sarah (Hartter) Meyer. He attended Berwick Center School and the Apostolic Christian Church in Bern, Kansas. In his younger years he went by the name Glen. Glen enjoyed helping with the chores on his family's farm. He worked as a hired hand for his brothers, brothers in law, neighbors and other friends. When Glen was old enough to drive a horse, he was the water boy for the threshing crew.
Ezra Glen lived on the farm with his parents, and then later moved to Sabetha. Before Ezra entered the Apostolic Christian Home, he lived in a house on Virginia Street, then to an apartment at The Apostolic Village.
