Obituary for Glen Harold Forbes

Glen H Forbes died June 21, 2018 at the age of ninety-two. Born to Albert and Alice Forbes of Mount Vernon, on October 3, 1925, one of four sons, he lived on a farm near the North Fork of the Skagit.
Glen married June E Sharp at the First Baptist Church in Mount Vernon on September 24, 1946. They were blessed with three children – Daniel, Shannon and Deborah.
Glen was a great Dad – camping trips and hikes in the mountains, and all learned to snow ski, water ski, dig clams, put up tents, sing a lot together and be happy.
Glen worked in the Plant Layout for Boeing for 15 years. He then bought a fishing resort in Hansville and ‘Forbes Landing’ was born - consisting of a restaurant, boat launch, gas dock, cabins, trailer court, gift and tackle shops, boats, and motors.
Glen and June stayed in Hansville; Glen, Dan and Sandy, (Dan’s wife) began Forbes Homes. Glen retired in 2001.
Glen lived a fabulous and interesting life. He is loved by his family who will miss him more than words can express.
Glen is survived by his wife June; son, Daniel (wife, Sandy); daughters, Shannon, Deborah (husband, David); 6 grandchildren – Charles, Daniel, Caitlin, Joel, Karina, Michael; 5 great-grandchildren – Owen, Loren, Arlea, Elizabeth and Rebecca; brother, Jim Forbes.
