Glen E. VanGrevenhof

Thu, Sep 5th, 2013
Posted in Spring Valley Obituaries

Glen Edward VanGrevenhof, age 70, of Spring Valley, Minnesota died peacefully at his home early Wednesday, September 4, 2013.

A Memorial Service will be held 11:00 a.m., Friday September 6, 2013, at Faith United Methodist Church in Spring Valley, with Pastor Dave Leider and retired guest Pastor and friend Norm Witt officiating. Visitation will be held one hour prior to the service at the church. The disposition of ashes will be private. Memorials are preferred to Seasons Hospice.

Glen was born on September 29, 1942 to Ed and Murna VanGrevenhof in Spring Valley. He attended Spring Valley schools, graduating in 1960. Following graduation he worked for Miller Brothers construction. In 1965 he started working for Standard Oil, first with his father’s gas station and then as a bulk agent. He later began farming and owned and operated a canned milk route. At one point in addition to farming Glen worked at Mayo Clinic in Rochester (which he did for 2 years) and drove school bus for Spring Valley schools (for 16 years). For more than 24 years Glen worked for Fillmore County DHIA, while also owning and operating a skid loader business as well as township road maintenance part time. After DHIA Glen worked full time as the owner and operator of a township road maintenance business, including mowing and cutting trees. He did this work until only months prior to his passing. He was always busy and enjoyed his work.

On November 13, 1965 he married Stella Hager of Modena, Wisconsin; and on January 1, 1967 they were blessed with the birth of their daughter Ginger. On August 4, 1990 Ginger married Jonathan Zierdt; and Glen never missed an opportunity to boast about his daughter and son-in-law.

He enjoyed tractors, especially International Harvester and also Oliver, on which both he did many restorations. He loved to bring back life to something that sometimes seemed hopeless. If he wasn’t working on tractors, he was researching them. He especially enjoyed being around people that shared his interest.

Glen is survived by his wife Stella, daughter Ginger (Jonathan) Zierdt of Mankato, a brother Harry Eugene (Elaine) of Fort Dodge, Iowa; and a niece and two nephews. Glen was preceded in death by his parents, an infant brother and a sister.
