Glen Eugene Parmely was born in Lusk on Sept. 12, 1928 the son of Claude Isaac Parmely and Sylvia (Green) Parmely. He was the youngest of six children. Glen grew up and attended school in Lusk. Glen was married to Donna May Penfield on Jan. 2, 1954, and together they had four children.
Glen's first job was milking cows for Blanche Scheaffer north of Lusk. He later worked for Hans and Bus Gautchi at the Standard Station. In 1952 he worked for Cecil Kaan. When his brother and best friend, Clifford got out of the armed forces Glen worked with him at the George Mill Ranch at Hat Creek. He worked for Dan Hanson and Roy Johnson at Hat Creek. Then moved his family to Twenty Mile west of Lance Creek where he worked for the Joss families. Then Glen spent the next 27 years at the State of Wyoming Port of Entry. He traveled the state with his supervisors from Cheyenne and Glen ran the port while they did trainings at each site.
His passion was always cowboying and horses. He always had a corral full of kids with horses and ponies. He belonged to the Lance Creek roping club and often he'd put the stock rack on the pickup, load everyone up, jumped his horse in the back and go roping. Wherever Glen went that had anything to do with horses or cows, be it Murray Butler's, Bill Magoon's, Pete Hanson's or Clifford's, he always had kids with him, his own and sometimes more. Sometimes he had to make two trips with the pickup and trailer just to get them all there before the work started. He would always tell them "Now make a hand, make a hand."
Glen had many hobbies: collecting bits and spurs, antiques and other treasurers, hunting, square dancing, calling modern square dancing, leatherwork, playing pinochle, watching John Wayne movies and driving down the road singing songs or visiting and telling stories with old friends.
He loved his family, God and many, many friends. Glen never knew a stranger. He was a simple man that loved unconditionally. Glen was a people person in every sense of the word.
He is survived by wife, Donna of Lusk; two daughters, Trenda Lea Moore and her husband Kit of Thermopolis, Debra Kay Lackey and her husband Danny of Thermopolis; two sons, Neil Eugene Parmely of Lamar, Colo. and Christopher Lee Parmely of Gillette; Grandkids: Jerod Thompson, Melissa Thompson, Travis Moore and his wife Rebecca, Tanner Parmely, Tel Parmely; Great Grandkids, Sheldon Thompson and Makayla Moore; Sister in law, Tillie Parmely; and many nieces and nephews.
Glen was preceded in death by parents; brothers and sisters, Harriet, Everett, Della, Erma and Clifford.
A memorial has been established to the First Baptist Church or the Niobrara Senior Center in Lusk. Pier Funeral Home is in charge of the local arrangements.
