Obituary

Glenn Edward Wiley, age 92 of Delton, passed away on July 29, 2019. Glenn was born on January 18, 1927 in Schoolcraft, MI, the son of Wright and Zelda Wiley. He was a veteran of WWII serving in the U.S. Army Air Corps, stationed in Hawaii. On January 24, 1947 he was united in marriage to his high school sweetheart, Eleanor Louise Hagerman. He worked at Richland Farm Service, Dimond Machinery, and in later years opened his own business north of Delton, G&E Repair, where he retired from in 2015. Glenn was a lifelong farmer as well, first in Richland and then north of Delton until his retirement. Glenn’s passion in life was farming and enjoyed all aspects of it while raising his and Eleanor’s three daughters on their Richland and Delton farms. He was a master welder and performed numerous projects for the state of Michigan and surrounding community. Glenn enjoyed fly fishing, anything to do with tractors, and was a lifelong reader of books and farming articles. His loving union with Eleanor lasted 62 years until she passed away on March 1, 2009. Glenn was blessed by a second chance at love and happiness with his marriage to Gloria Herbert on January 19, 2011. Gloria’s family lovingly brought him into the Herbert family. During their marriage Glenn developed very strong relationships with many of Gloria’s family members and members of the Faith United Methodist Church. Glenn was preceded in death by his parents; three brothers, Artemas, Gordon, and Donald Wiley. He is survived by his wife, Gloria; three daughters, Diane (Jerry) Frost, Sharon Boniface Fisher (Paul), and Linda (Arthur) Ribble; six grandchildren, twelve great grandchildren, two great-great grandchildren; step-children, Gary (Bonnie) Herbert, Gail (Larry) Phillips, Sue (Mike) Albertson, Mark (Jane) Herbert, Kathy (Poncho) Samis, Jeff (Rose) Herbert, and Kris (John) Workman; 20 step-grandchildren and 30 step-great grandchildren; two sisters, Edna Sabin and Ellen Chapman; many nieces and nephews. Relatives and friends may meet with the family on Thursday, August 1 from 6 to 8 P.M. at Williams Gores Funeral Home in Delton, and again on Friday from 10 to 11 A.M. at the church. A funeral service will be held on Friday, August 2 at 11 A.M. at Faith United Methodist Church, Pastor Brian Bunch officiating. Memorial contributions may be made to Faith United Methodist Church. Glenn and Eleanor’s ashes will be joined together at Fort Custer National Cemetery on Friday, August 9, 2019 at 10 AM.

Dad was my hero. Not in the sense we probably think of; but because he lived by example to all. He was humble, honest; a hand shake will do, always willing to learn, a kind heart, sense of humor, and a gentleman. Proud to be a farmer, preferred two lane roads rather than the interstate, that way he could see the land, farms, and a running narrative on the crops and fields he saw. His passion was tractors, and was the happiest when he had one to tinker on, or for that matter rebuild. Dad had the rare opportunity to have two loves in his life; his high school sweet heart, Eleanor for 62 yrs. and after her passing, Gloria for 9, who he loved until his passing. Dad has left a rich legacy and an example for how to live life. I will miss my father dearly, love you dad!

Grandpa and Grandma’s slogan for G&E Repair was that they could fix everything but a broken heart. This is one of those times that I wish they could. I will miss our talks, GPA always asked if I was busy and liked to hear about how things were at work.

We will miss dads stories, he would have to tell us what farmer had plowed their fields, who had cut hay for baling, who had been out combining or how high the corn had grown, a true farmer. If anybody could fix something, he was the one, helped many people over the years and always tinkering on something. A book to read was his nature when he didn't have a wrench in his hand.. Reading the Kalamazoo Gazette front to back and especialy the 'funnies' was a ritual . One of our grandson's said to me today, 'grandma you know what we should eat at the luncheon, watermelon and ice cream. Have to have a shovel for the ice cream though, a teaspoon just isn't big enough'. I laughed, what a true statement, loved both but ice cream was the first choice, never turned it down. We love you dad.
