GLYN GILMAN’S OBITUARY
A TRIBUTE IN PICTURES
But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; they shall walk, and not faint.
Those who knew him would agree that Glyn Gilman was an amazing man. I would go as far as saying that Glyn was the greatest man I ever personally knew —- a Godly man of impeccable character —- a man whom I pray my son emulates as he himself becomes a man.
Glyn was not only one of the funniest, smartest, and wittiest men I have ever been around, he was undoubtedly one of most loving, most giving, and most humble as well. He was also the toughest. Debilitated in his later years by the after-effects of childhood polio (Post-Polio Syndrome), Glyn was a modern-day JOB who never complained about the cards life had dealt him. And despite his physical adversities, his faith was on display for all to see —- a life constantly, consistently, and purposefully lived as a witness for Christ. Like the old timers like to say, “He cut a wide swath”. As a long-time teacher / coach / principal, “Mr Gilman” touched countless lives and will be sorely missed by all who knew him. We love you.
