PRICE - Our precious angel, Glen A. Lemmon, age 32, walked away from this world July 24, 2006.
He was born Dec. 4, 1973 in Price to Pat and Ginger Lemmon. From his birth Glen traveled a difficult path.
No matter the obstacle he pushed on. Inspiring everyone who knew him; with his remarkable strength, unrelenting courage, and unconditional love. Rarely do we find an individual that can change you for a lifetime simply by their presence.
Glen was blessed to have the very best aunts, uncles and cousins. They were all so good to him. But most of all Glen's Grandpa Merrill and Grandma Betty were the best grandparents anyone could ever hope for. They took him on many, many camping trips so Glen could do his most favorite thing and that was fishing! Fishing is only one of the many things they did with Glen.
Glen had many special friends he loved to spend time at the Apple House. Glen was blessed to have the very best aids while attending Castle Valley Center. Lorene Miller who we considered her more of a second mother then just his aid. Glen loved his aides Cori Swasey, Amber Christenson, Candy Jaramillo and Michael Wood. Nicole Staker was a lifelong friend that he also loved. Jenna Davis was Glen's girlfriend. They made the cutest couple and loved going to the prom with each other.
Glen is survived by parents, Pat and Ginger Lemmon; brothers, T.J. Lemmon, Salt Lake City; Brett Lemmon, Price; grandparents, Merrill and Betty Jones of Price; and many loving aunts, uncles and cousins.
