Jason Young and daughter Katelyn. He’s also survived by many nieces and nephews. He was blessed with a large family and loved being a brother, husband, father, grandfather and uncle.
Glen spent the majority of his working life in civil service and had a fine reputation as a diligent and hard worker. He also taught his children about honesty, integrity and hard work. The most important event in his life was when he dedicated his life to his heavenly father Jehovah and was baptized in 1961. This began a life of self-sacrifice that lasted until his death. He enjoyed the door to door ministry and helped many individuals to understand bible truths. He also diligently taught his children to love Jehovah and Jesus Christ and exercise faith in the promise of everlasting life. He lived and loved his faith and as a result had a spiritual family of several hundred individuals. We look forward to the time when Job 14:13-15 will be fulfilled.
