Glen S. Pearce passed away on Wednesday, March 8th at 87 years old at his home in Tooele, Utah. He was born on May 17th, 1935, to Edward Ivan Pearce and Annie Elizabeth Sandall in Logan, Utah. He has nine siblings, eight have preceded him in death: Don, Lewis, Velma, Ivan, Bill, Dean, Betty, & Idonna. He is survived by one sister, Linda. He was married to Barbara Conrad, and later divorced. Later, he married and was sealed to Peggy Fawson in the Salt Lake City Temple on October 7, 1978.
Glen loved life and was a very hard worker. He served in the United States Marine Corps from 1954-1957 and then in the United States Army from 1959-1962. He loved his country and was immensely proud of his service. He worked at the Tooele Army Depot for 30 years.
Glen’s passion was gardening, and he truly had a green thumb. His garden was one of his greatest talents and he could grow anything. He was especially known for his tomato plants that he started from seed in his green house. He loved to share what he grew with friends and family.
Bowling was one of his favorite past times and Thursday nights were sacred to him. He enjoyed getting together with his bowling league, and he continued this hobby well into his 80’s.
Glen enjoyed traveling with his sweetheart Peggy. They visited many places in the United States and loved every moment of it. They would look forward to their next adventure and then share with those they loved. He also had a great love for reading. He enjoyed many topics, but his favorites were books that included U.S. history, and history of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
The last twelve years of his life were very difficult for him: that’s because he had to watch his favorite teams, BYU, and the Utah Jazz during their losing seasons. Even through their rough years, Glen was a true fan-Cougar Blue was his favorite color as seen by the clothes he wore and the color of the vehicles he drove.
With all his accomplishments his greatest was his family. He has five children. Cindy (Jeff), Ron (Erin), Tina (Orin), Mike (Sasha), and Craig (Jana). 18 grandchildren (two proceed him in death) and 7 great grandchildren (one proceeds him in death).
He died a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. He had many callings and served each one with faith and integrity. He loves the Savior Jesus Christ, The Bible and Book of Mormon Another Testament of Jesus Christ and the Prophet Joseph Smith.
Glen is a man of love, faith, and integrity. He will be greatly missed by all who know him.
