Glen K Lund passed away on April 19, 2023 in Farmington, Utah. He was 92 years old. He was born to Melvin Miller and Stella Domgaard Lund on August 15, 1930 in Manti Utah. He was the fifth of six children. Glen loved growing up in Manti and it held a special place in his heart. He passed that love on to his children and they all returned as often as possible to visit his family and friends, some who still are living there today.
Glen graduated from Manti High School in 1947 where he excelled in academics and basketball. He earned the name of “The Claw,” because of his ability to palm two basketballs with his very beautiful, very large hands. After high school he served a 2 ½ year mission in the Paris France Mission.
He attended Snow College and Brigham Young University where he graduated in French and Chemistry. He then went on to attend medical school at the University of Utah, graduating with his MD. He completed an Ear, Nose, and Throat residency and began practice at the Ear, Nose, and Throat Center in Salt Lake City, being one of the four founding partners.
Glen met and married Anne Nebeker Lund when they were both attending the University of Utah. They were married in the Manti Temple on June 29, 1957.
Glen was a faithful life-time member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. He served in many church callings including counselor in many bishoprics, mission president of the Geneva Switzerland Mission, church public affairs missionary, medical missionary in the Nauvoo Illinois Mission and humanitarian missionary in Romania. Glen’s favorite calling, however, was serving as his ward’s scout leader for more than 20 years. He built an extension on his barn for a “Scout Room,’ complete with heat, a sink with running water, and a large activity room used for many parties, celebrations, and lots of basketball!
Glen was a master gardener and spent many hours weeding and caring in his backyard gardens. Glen’s other hobbies were home repairs, reading, and spending time with his large family and friends at Lake Powell. He was an avid BYU fan.
Glen and Anne welcomed three additional children into their family through the LDS Indian Placement Program. Linda and Orlando each resided with the family for one year. Karen lived with them for 12 years, truly becoming a member of the family.
Glen is survived by his wife, Anne, their nine children, David (Kathy), Robert (Jeanene), Kimberly (Lonnie), Karen (Robert), Melinda (Mike), John (Lisa), Jennifer (Steve), Steve (Emily), Seth (Angie), 54 grandchildren, and 65 great-grandchildren.
