Obituary - Glen Ross Knudson


January 17, 2019

Glen Ross Knudson was born June 26, 1935, in Havre, Montana, on the family farm; he passed away peacefully in Spokane, Washington, January 5, 2019.

Farming and ranching were the biggest part of his life and the early years he worked eagerly alongside his father to learn the trade. His love of rodeo took him to many communities to compete in bronc riding, bull riding or roping. where he made several buddies along the way. He married Ila Springer in 1957 and they ranched on Red Rock, had five children and lived here until December 1968, when they then moved to Cranbrook, British Columbia, Canada and continued ranching until they divorced in 1982.

Glen made his way to Spokane at this time and started his truck driving career until 2010. He enjoyed this part of his life and talked for hours about all the places in the USA and Canada that he would not have traveled to otherwise. A passion for music took him and Jean to Nashville and Branson and he spent hours watching Grand Ole Opry tapes and listening to music.

Glen is survived by his sons Terry and Toby and daughter, Pam Hebert (Keith); grandchildren Dallas (Ben), Kelsey (Kyle), Jeffrey (Kendall), and Amy (Tyler), and six great-grandchildren; very special friend Jean Shaw; brothers Lyle, Dave and sister Gladys; and many nieces and nephews. Mourning him the most is Missy, his cat and Guardian Angel.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Albert and Dorothy (Schafer) Knudson; two sons, Timmy (1963) and Ted, (2015); two brothers and two sisters; and companion Guyanne Jensen (1998).

It’s time to rest your mind and body, dad, we will miss you.

Cremation has taken place and a gathering for Glen in Havre will be announced at a later date.
