Glade Hall Truman, age 91, passed away peacefully in his sleep on the morning of Sept. 3, 2018, at his home in Enterprise, Utah, from complications of pneumonia.
He was born April 28, 1927, to Jacob Thomas Truman and Emily Hall in Enterprise, Utah. He was the seventh of 10 children. He attended school in Enterprise and worked on the family farm. At the age of 17, Glade joined the U.S. Navy during World War II. After his discharge, he returned home and graduated from high school.
He married Mona Rae Bowler on Aug. 5, 1948, in Enterprise and they were later sealed in the St George temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in May 1978. While raising their five children, they lived in Nevada, northern California and Southern Utah. Glade had many occupations, which included working for Titanium Metals, Henderson Fire Department, Las Vegas Hilton and Hecla Mining Company. He was most known for building many houses with his brother Ervin.
He was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints where he served in many callings.
He enjoyed hunting with his brothers, fishing, picking pine nuts, putting together puzzles, spending time with the grandkids and he especially loved planting and taking care of his garden every year.
At the time of his passing, Glade and Mona had just celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary. He was a much-loved husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather and will be dearly missed.
