Glenn R. Wilson III

On July 29, 2021, I, Glenn R. Wilson III, 57, have gone into God’s eternal love.

I will be leaving Dubois, PA by air to return to my beloved red state of Nebraska.

Most of my career was in construction. Even though I contributed in this field I don’t expect there will be roads, bridges or buildings named after me. That’s ok because I was loved and loved most of those people back.

I am leaving my two beautiful daughters Brooke and Briana Wilson along with my sweet granddaughter Mila. Keep working hard and know I love you.

I had the kindest parents and my dad is the best example of a good man that anyone could imagine; Glenn and Connie Wilson, my siblings Judy (Ron) Wiegert, Sherry (Grae) Schuster and Wade (Kelly) Wilson. Ron, we made memories too numerous to count and I loved it. Grae we went on the best 4-wheeling adventure a guy could hope for. Judy and Sherry, you showed me love and compassion. I love you and appreciate all you contributed to my life.

I have many nieces and nephews who are strong, kind, caring and funny. Thank you for coming and spending time with me, I enjoyed that. Jenna, you were just plain fun and funny to be around.

While skiing the Austrian Alps, one day I was alone on top of the highest slope. It was the only time I ever saw the sky clear up there. The view was majestic. I always felt like I met God up there. I saw God was real and a divine creator. The thought of those moments still brings tears to my eyes.

Even though the reality of God was now known to me, I did not accept Jesus as my Lord and Savior until I became ill. I know if you are reading this I am with the Lord and there is no sorrow, no pain. It is hard for me to imagine a place where I am not missing all of you. My hope has been that I would be greeted by Pap and Rambo. Surely there are dogs in heaven. Josh, I had no idea that this slobber ridden dog would become so dear to me.

I spent much of my life having fun and making people laugh. Growing up when we had company I would recite Cheech and Chong, not always appropriate but that was my contribution. Other joys in life include but are not limited to Celeste (I never got over her), biscuits and gravy, helping people, working with wood, forging, pie, being outside, beer, a good laugh and I really enjoyed complaining about liberals and people that waste my time.

If I had ever won an Oscar, besides my family I would thank Dale and Bud, my neighbors. Those two really know how to help a guy out. My friends Brian, Darren and Dean, you guys gave me a lot of laughs and meant a lot in my life. Friends, too many to mention but no less significant. Several friends went out of their way to visit me while I was ill. That brought me great joy. Thank you for that and thank you for being a part of my life.

Big news in recent years is the number of dead people voting in elections. This gave me two ideas. First, I would like a mailbox for my headstone so I can participate in mail-in-voting; and second, if dead people can vote, why not run for president? Glenn R. Wilson III, 2024, God Bless America!

Hope to see you in Heaven!

My life will be celebrated Thursday, August 5, 2021, with family greeting friends for visitation at 9:00 a.m. at Curran Funeral Chapel, followed by a funeral service at 10:00 a.m. Pastor Kevin Orndorf will officiate.

Interment will be in the Grand Island City Cemetery.

Memorials are suggested to Temple Baptist Church, 590 Lincoln Dr., DuBois PA 15801.

Curran Funeral Chapel is assisting my family. Please share your memories of me at www.curranfuneralchapel.com under my obituary guestbook.
