Glade lied about his age to join the CCC’s when he was 16 to help his family. They helped build bridges and roads in Zion’s National Park and southern Utah towns. He then joined the Army and served in WWII as part of the calvary. After returning home from war he drove mail truck, and retired as a truck driver.
Glade loved to ride his four-wheeler and he owned many. They also enjoyed camping, hiking, and collecting rocks and arrow heads. He would disappear for days on the desert. Grandpa loved to trade vehicles—he owned upwards of 50.
He loved his family and was a great supporter of all of their activities.
