GLENN DOUGLAS HARDING
December 15, 1946 ˜ October 26, 2019

Glenn Douglas Harding, 72, of Vancouver, Washington, passed away on October 26, 2019 after fighting a long battle with Muscular Dystrophy. Glenn grew up on a farm in the Proebstel area of Vancouver and was active in school sports, especially football.
After graduating from Evergreen High School in 1965, Glenn began his career in the trucking industry as a long-distance household mover. Over the course of his career, Glenn drove over a million miles and passed through all 48 continental states. He finished his career as Safety Director for Gulick Trucking, before retiring in March 2018.
Glenn had a passion for Harley Davidson motorcycles and they were his main mode of transportation for over 30 years. This passion took him on many adventures, including multiple trips to Sturgis, making many friends along the way. He loved music, classic cars and was always picking up new hobbies, even learning the art of quilting in his later years. Glenn gave love freely, was loved by many and his spirit will be greatly missed.
He was married most recently to Pat Warwick in 2018, who survives him. Glenn is also survived by his sons, Doug Harding and Ken Harding; his daughter, Marcy Harding; numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren; his brother, Ken Harding; and two sisters, Shirlene Buckmiller and Jill Short.
Glenn was predeceased by his father, Douglas Harding; and his mother, Shirley Wolf.

Glenn was such a nice guy and so polite to all the girls.

He had such a twinkle in his eyes that I always wondered what he was thinking or going to do next.

What an athlete too.

So sorry for his illness and passing.

I will greatly miss the great talks and dinners we had together over the years since I came to Gulick Trucking 9 years ago. You new I moved here to be closer to my parents in their final years so I didn't know anybody and you were a great friend I could always count on to join me for a meal and conversation when I got back into town. Ride that wonderful Harley of yours once again in the heavens. You will be sincerely missed my friend.

I only got to see Glenn once or twice a year at different family functions, but he was always so fun to talk to. And I will always be fond of the pictures I have of him dressed as Santa with my dogs. I may not have known him as well as others but I will definitely miss seeing his smiling face and hearing his laugh at those get togethers with family.

Safe journey to the other side, my friend. It was a privilege to drive those many miles with you and to help keep each other awake over the CB's, and to work in Safety with you. You are missed.
