Excerpt from Funeral Sermon:
Glen died in the Veteran Hospital in Salt lake City, Utah, two years and four months after his dad's death.
"Glen" served with the Sixth Armored Division in World War II. He stood in the fighting line with General Patton's third Army. Five golden stars he wears on his chest, campaign stars of the great war. The battles he went through and the men who fought them have become legends like Gettysburg.
The Stars and Stripes cover him now, by this means, the Nation honors him. His name is now and forever will be, enscrolled on the long roll of the Nation's honored dead.
In civilian life, after the war, it seemed to me, there still clung around Glen, the aura of his army days; of combat days, for he sometimes had an indifferent, rough exterior, but probing deeply you found a very tender heart. Glen was a good man, he has a good name to remember, a good name to live by.
May peace be with you as we give Glen back to the great Giver who gave him".
(funeral sermon given by George Stewart)
