Glenn Marcoe
RAPID CITY - Glenn Marcoe, 94, Rapid City, died August 5, 2009, at Fountain Springs Health Care. He was born Sept. 27, 1914, in Red Canyon near Edgemont to Walter and Lydia Marcoe.
The family moved to Omaha, Neb., where he attended South High School. He married Ruth Louise Anderson in Wahoo, Neb., on Aug. 1, 1932. He enrolled in Union College at Lincoln, Neb., and graduated from University of Nebraska.
He was drafted into the army in 1945. Upon discharge the family relocated to Rapid City. He started a construction company with his brother, Robert developing several subdivisions in Rapid City and built many homes in the South Canyon Area.
He was a member of the Seventh-day Adventist Church where he was often asked to preach and teach. In retirement Glenn and Ruth lived at the Black Hills Health and Education Center near Hermosa where they donated their time and work. They helped build residence halls, water systems, and numerous remodeling projects.
His wife Ruth worked by his side doing all kinds of construction work, and cooked for many workers and family. She died in 1996.
His last house was built for Rosemary Truesdell whom later he married. They lived the past 13 years in Las Vegas and Rapid City.
