Glenn Robert Combellick
May 8, 1924 ~ November 5, 2023 (age 99) 99 Years Old
On a gorgeous morning on November 5, 2023, Glenn Robert Combellick of Littleton, Colorado passed away peacefully in his sleep within minutes of the spectacular orange, red and yellow sunrise that painted the sky. It was All Saints Day.
Glenn was born in Billings, Montana on May 8, 1924, to parents Lester Ray and Bessie Combellick. He spent his childhood skating on frozen ponds, fly fishing, and winning marble championships. As a young man, he also served his country in the Navy during World War II.
Glenn had been in memory care at Brookdale Meridian in Englewood, the city that was his professional home for many years. He co-founded his own CPA firm, Combellick, O’Conner & Reynolds, which occupied the tall building that is now Wells Fargo Bank. Glenn was a pillar of his community, dedicated to serving the needs of others through the Arapahoe Sertoma Club (Service to Mankind) and the Englewood Chamber of Commerce, and he was appointed president of both organizations.
In 1963, Glenn oversaw and helped to build the family’s home in Littleton on two beautiful acres of prairie land. It had a sweeping view of the front range, where he and his wife, Vernie, raised their family and lived for 56 years. They celebrated their 75th anniversary on August 29, 2023, he at 99 years of age and Vernie at 98. Glenn also loved animals, starting with his childhood dalmatian, Pepper. Over six decades, the Combellicks welcomed six dogs, nine horses, and a beloved stray cat, Moses, into their household. The family’s beagle, Macee, was his constant companion and most treasured pet. Traveling was especially significant in Glenn’s life. He and his family trailered through most of North America, and later, he and Vernie visited every continent on the globe.
Glenn will be remembered for his jovial nature (a people-lover and the life of the party), honesty, integrity, and love of flying, fishing, golfing, dancing, and HAM radio. He is survived by his wife, Vernie; four children, Rod, Janet, Sally, and Linda; eight grandchildren; and five great-grandchildren. He will be sorely missed. Donations may be given in his memory to the Arapahoe Sertoma Club.
Memorial services are planned for early 2024 at Drinkwine Family Mortuary in Littleton, details TBA.
