Brownsville area pioneer and avid golfer, William Terrence Glud, died January 26, 1982 at Harrison Memorial Hospital at the age of 87. William was born to Brownsville homesteaders, Jens Peter Johannes and Ane Louise Nissine (Nielsen) Glud (both of Denmark) on September 15, 1894. He was educated in the area's first schools. Between 1915 and 1919, he purchased the acreage now known as Glud's Corner at the intersection of Bucklin Hill Road and Brownsville Highway. By 1930, he and his sons had built the ponds that remain at that corner.

In 1917, he married the former Florence May McKean from Stillwater, Minnesota and an elementary school teacher at Brownsville Elementary School. They had two sons, John Bryce Glud (Glude) and Clarence Walter Glud.

Mr. Glud worked 31 years as a flange turner at Puget Sound Naval Shipyard, retiring in 1948. He moved to Winthrop, Washington in Okanogan County where he farmed for 14 years and traveled.

He married Mabel Louise (Van Kirk) Harris of Jacksonville,
Florida in 1966, and the couple returned to his original Kitsap property. Mr. Glud had been a member of the Silverdale Methodist Church and was a 60 year member of the Masons, having served as past master of Steadfast Lodge 216. Additionally, he was active in Silverdale senior citizen activities and was a member of Rolling Hills Golf Club. He golfed nearly every day but also found time for gardening and granted garden space to friends and neighbors as well.
