Our beloved father and grandfather Glade W Anderson passed away April 11th,
2023 at the age of 91. Glade was born May 2nd, 1931 in Vernal, Utah to
Charles Fredrick and Edna Adams Anderson.
Glade married Dorothy Ann Horrocks on January 3rd, 1951 in the Salt Lake City
Temple. Glade and Dorothy celebrated 70 years of marriage together and
were an example of what true love and devotion look like.
Glade embodied and always lived his life by the principles of hard work,
honor, commitment, service, and love.
Glade was a devoted husband, father, and friend. Nothing meant more to him
than his family and the gospel of Jesus Christ. Glade was a dedicated member
of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and cherished the numerous
opportunities it gave him to serve others.
Glade had a passion for wood turning, gardening, bread making, and learning.
He said, "No one is too old to learn, especially when you have 'YouTube
University' at your fingertips!" Glade was an inventor and engineer of simple,
and sometimes complicated things; things that made some of life's everyday
tasks easier. He also loved to travel with his wife Dorothy. Together they
traveled to many destinations from Canada to Mexico, California to Maine and
all points in between.
Glade made everyone he came in contact with feel loved and important.
Everyone he loved became a member of his family and no one leaves behind a
"family" as large as Glade's. He will be sorely missed and has left a void in our
lives that cannot be filled.
Glade is survived by two of his children Randy Anderson and Cathy Bilbey-
Kempton (Brett) and his brother Shris Anderson (Judy). He is also survived by
14 grandchildren, 45 great grandchildren, and 9 great-great grandchildren.
Glade is preceded in death by his wife Dorothy, parents Fred and Edna
Anderson, son Russell Anderson, brother Dennis Anderson and sister Frenna
Hadley, grandson, Brian Anderson, granddaughter Cindy Hadlock, and son-in-law Curt Bilbey.
