Glade's life was one of willing, faithful and dedicated service. He graduated from Utah State University and then from Washington State University School of Veterinary Medicine. He had a longtime large and small animal practice in Oroville, California. He had a unique ability to make everyone feel comfortable and loved. His family was his pride and joy.

He was awarded the distinguished Life membership Achievement Award from the CVMA and also was honored by the Washington State University Veterinary Medical School with their distinguished Alumni Award. Glade was truly a dedicated animal doctor. He grew up on a dairy farm in Cache Valley, Utah and enjoyed going up to deer camp and his beloved L Cove Ranch for many years.

He was also a master gardener and took great pride in his expansive palm tree collection, orange orchard and growing giant tomatoes. Glade and Carole had a great life together. His love for her and the almost 57 years of marriage is a love story for the ages.
The family would like to thank the Medical and nursing staff at IMC in Murray for their great work in caring for Dad.
