into eternity. Glen Colin Miller began his earthly sojourn on March 20, 1945 as the third child
and first son of Glen E and Vivian Seibold Miller.
Glen was born in Salt Lake City and raised in Bountiful, Utah. During his school years, he
worked at the Bountiful Motor View and Slim Olson’s Gas Station. Glen loved cars and built a
few himself - winning third place in the 1978 Concours d’ Elegance for his Shelby Mustang.
After graduating from Bountiful High School, he attended Brigham Young University and served
in the Central States Mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. While serving
in the Hawk Missile Division of the United States Army, Glen earned a National Defense Service
Medal as a sharp shooter. He later served several years in the Utah Army Reserve.
On July 28, 1967, Glen married the love of his life, Wanda Fae Miller, in the Salt Lake Temple for
time and all eternity. They welcomed six beautiful children into their home and shared 52 years
of fun and adventure mingled with struggle and triumph! Glen was an avid skier - snow and
water! Boating was his passion! He loved nothing more than being on Lake Powell with his
family around him. He was a wonderful husband and magnificent father who literally gave his
life for his family! Serving for over 31 years as a Temple Ordinance Worker, Glen taught his
children to love the Lord, work hard, and find joy in living. He loved his career in the flower
industry - operating Sea View Nursery in Santa Barbara, California until moving to Cedar City,
where he continued working with his brothers at Milgro Nursery in New Castle.
