Glenn Errol Smith

August 13, 1948August 11, 2020

Glenn Errol Smith, of Parker, Colorado, passed away at his home on Tuesday, August 11th, 2020 at the age of 71. He was born on August 13th, 1948 in Kansas City, Missouri. Glenn was a Vietnam Veteran. When Glenn returned from Vietnam, he was stationed at Fitzsimmons Hospital. After one glimpse of the mountains he never wanted to leave Colorado. He began his professional career with United Bank of Denver and retired from Wells Fargo as a VP/Compliance Officer.

Over the past 40+ years he and his wife backpacked, river rafted, hiked the back country and he fished every stream, river, lake or ocean he stumbled across. At home he always had a bountiful garden and he played golf whenever he could.

He leaves behind his loving wife Pat, a brother Rayfield, a niece, nephews and extended family.

Glenn is preceded in death by his parents Ernest and Jannie Smith, his brother Reginald Smith, and his sister Ernesta Smith.

Glenn’s final wishes were:

“Please let those whom might care know that I died. I am thankful that I knew each of them because it made my world a richer, better place. I ask that they say a quiet goodbye.”

Bob and Smitty met at Fitzsimmons Army Hospital in 1970 following tours in Viet Nam. I was a new hire at General Rose Hospital where Pat was my boss. We threw a getting out of the army party for Bob inviting people from both places where Glenn and Pat met.

They became our best friends. We enjoyed hiking, backpacking, camping, rafting, golfing and even a gourmet cooking dinner group. We even spent one long winter night in a 4 man snow cave for our only adventure with winter camping.

We were fortunate to have friends like Glenn and Pat for some 50 years. Thanks for the memories. Glenn is greatly missed.

I lost a very dear friend of 52 years. We go back to combat medical school and OR school. Then vietnam and Fitzsimmons. We camped, partied, fished, hiked and had many a long discusions of anything and everything. He was extemly smart and at times he kept me in line. We thought Monday night football was the greatest thing. I cannot imgine how much. I will miss him. Peace Gale

Glenn and Pat came into our lives when they moved into our cul-de-sac many years ago. Over the years Glenn became more than a neighbor, he became a good friend. He was a wonderful, kind, funny man who always made us smile. He had a great sense of humor that Rick and I won’t forget.

I still laugh about how he came over one evening after we had had a big tent put up in our yard for our son’s wedding. As he walked up he said he had to come over to see what type of revival we were having. He had such a quick wit.

The cul-de-sac and neighborhood won’t be the same without him. I hope he knew how much his friendship meant to us both.

Rest In Peace Glenn. Pat we’re here if you need anything.

I had the privilege of working with Glenn as a fellow Board Member of the Deer Creek Water District during the final years of his life. I considered him my friend even though our relationship was primarily a working one. His integrity and thoroughness was always a welcome compliment to his great personality. I will miss his humor and friendship immensely. Rest in peace Glenn!

I knew Glenn while we served on our water district board for the last four plus years. We spent 1 1/2 to 3 plus hours every month during meetings working together. Among all of Glenn's great qualities, his integrity is what I admired the most. The following definition truly describes that quality I experienced.

Integrity means following your moral or ethical convictions and doing the right thing in all circumstances, even if no one is watching you. Having integrity means you are true to yourself and would do nothing that demeans or dishonors you.

I really enjoyed working with Glenn and it was an honor to know and serve with him.

We have lost a very dear man. He was kind, funny, wicked smart and always my friend. I enjoyed talking to him on the phone when calling Pat. The first time I was ever at the old house, he gave me a short tour and then said, "Ok, now I have to go back and finish my taxes. Oh how I hate doing taxes", gave me a hug and went back to the taxes. We all love and miss you very much. We will take good care of Pat and Sammie for you.
