A great soul has returned home. Glenn L. Mehr passed to the other side peacefully on Sunday, October 28, 2012 at his home in Bountiful, Utah. A kind and gentle man, Glenn served faithfully in his Church and community. He was above all a peacemaker.

On August 31, 1947, Glenn and Denise Joan Smith were married in Preston, Idaho, and later sealed in the Logan Temple. They moved to Downey, California, in 1954. Glenn worked as a systems analyst for various firms in Southern California. The Flour Corporation sent Glenn and Denise to various work assignments in Secunda, South Africa; Calgary, Alberta; and Houston, Texas. They returned to Utah in 1985 where Glenn worked for the Family History Department of the LDS Church until he retired. Glenn and Denise also served a mission for the Church at the headquarters of the Northern European Area located in Solihull, England. Later Glenn served as a Bountiful Temple worker. Glenn loved listening to classical music and studying the early days of this nation, particularly the contributions of the founding fathers.
