Glen Harold Cook, age 82 of Vernal, Utah passed away at the Uintah Care Center on March 24, 2012.

He was in the US Army and served honorably in the Korean War in the early 1950s. In 1966 he married his best friend Carolyn Bodily, whom he loved for 46 years.
Glen's lifetime profession was farming. He also worked in the oilfield, as a miner at American Gilsonite, and after retirement he worked as a water master.
He was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and served in the Vernal Temple from 1997 to 2006. He later commented that it was the best calling he ever had. Glen lived life to the fullest and loved the outdoors, hunting, fishing, and farming. His family will always remember him as the life of the party.
