Glendon Engert was a quiet man who loved to travel, was an avid reader and liked to camp with friends in the Sierra.

He worked as a surveyor laying out roads for building projects until the economy soured, then became a locksmith to earn a living. An elder at his church said he would sometimes talk about the unkempt and damaged homes he would encounter on calls or while changing locks on homes for banks.

Engert was killed Thursday, April 12, 2012, in Modesto, Calif., when he and a sheriff's deputy were ambushed by a man with a gun at a home where they were serving an eviction notice. The deputy, Robert Paris, was also killed.
