Glenn was born in Lethbridge on June 18, 1947. He was the youngest of 13 children born to George and Ilene Lyons. Glenn grew up and attended school in Lethbridge. He worked at numerous gas stations during his youth. While attending college, Glenn married his high school sweetheart Sharlene. They had their first two children in Lethbridge before moving to Calgary so Glenn could learn the plumbing trade from his brother George. The family then moved back to Lethbridge where their third child was born. Glenn was employed by Sears, working in various departments within the store for the next 10+ years. He then worked for Dave Lyons Tire, Fountain Tire and eventually Kirks Tire. Glenn also owned and operated his own mobile tire business, G.L. Tire Service. In 2004 Glenn retired due to health issues but kept himself busy doing handyman jobs for family and friends. Glenn was a faithful member of the L.D.S. church and loved to serve any way he could. He especially enjoyed his time in the Student Ward Bishopric and working at the Family History Library. Glenn’s favorite things were old cars, road trips with his wife and family, fast food and his dog Jake. Glenn will be greatly missed by everyone that knew him. We love you Dad.
