Glen Albert Thomas, age 93, passed away peacefully, in his home, on April 13th, 2023. \n\nHe was born the eldest of two children on July 28th 1929, in Leland, Utah, to Albert Wylie Thomas and Jennie Mae Olsen. His sister, Dolores Thomas Cook, preceded him in death.\n\nHe attended Spanish Fork High School where he excelled in track as a state champion in the mile run. He was proud of his typing skills and won a typing competition. He loved to dance and attended all the proms and dances. He was also a member of the FFA for 3 years and won multiple awards for his purebred show hogs and baby beef. He held several part-time jobs and worked on the farm while attending High School.\n \nAfter High School he attended BYU as a freshman then transferred to the University of Utah to pursue his pharmacy degree. During Christmas break he was working at City Drug in Provo, where he met and fell in love with Dorothy Richards. They were later married on September 20th, 1950 in the Salt Lake City Temple. He completed his degree in the spring of 1951 and enlisted in the Air Force at Fort Douglas, Utah. A short 8 weeks later he received orders to go to San Antonio, Texas for basic training. After basic training, he returned to Utah to meet Dorothy and together they drove to Vance Air Force Base in Enid, Oklahoma. He was in charge of the pharmacy at the Base Hospital for 4 years. He received an honorable discharge in June, 1955 and returned to Utah. He went back to work at City Drug in Provo, Utah (at the corner of University and Center Street). He later became a co-owner with his partner, Henry Gardner. For some time they co-owned and operated the City Drugs in Spanish Fork and Provo. He and his partner later closed City Drug and Glen finished his career as a pharmacist with Smith’s Food and Drug. He retired at the “young” age of 78. When asked what he liked most about being a pharmacist, he said,”helping people”. That was evident by the joy he felt every day counseling with customers in the drug store.\n\nHaving been born and raised during the great depression, he learned the value of hard work and saving from a young age. Between the farm and pharmacies, he often worked 14 hour days 6 days a week. It was important to him to provide a good life for his wife and children whom he loved very much.
