HICKMAN, Glen Wayne (Age 55) Passed away December 3, 2009 after a three year battle with cancer. Glen was born March 18, 1954 in Spokane to parents Howard and Elaine Hickman. He grew up inSpokane and spent summers living with his grandmother Hilda Loe in Molson, Washington and working on the Loe ranch. An Eagle Scout, he graduated from Shadle Park High School in 1972, going on to earn both his Bachelor's degree in Math and Master's degree in Computer Science from Eastern Washington University. He spent several summers working for the Forest Service in Idaho. After working one year in Portland, Oregon, Glen returned to Spokane to work for Wagstaff Engineering, Aztec Electric, and Spokane Teachers Credit Union where he was a computer network administrator. It was his Boy Scout and Forest Service experiences that cemented Glen's lifelong enthusiasm for outdoor recreation and adventure. He was a long-time member of the Spokane Mountaineers. Glen's Lutheran faith was strong and he spent both his early and later years as a member of Gloria Dei Lutheran Church. As a younger adult, he wasactive in the early growth of Peace Lutheran Church. Glen was famous for his cooking skills, was well known for his home-canned dill pickles and enjoyed gardening. Glen met his wife Nancy in the Spokane Mountaineers. They married in 1993 where Glen became an instant and fully dedicated family man with her children Kara, Myra, and Benjamin. A highlight each summer was taking the whole family on the Spokane Mountaineers Summer Outings throughout the Northwest for recreation, camping, and outdoor cooking with good friends. Glen and Nancy shared the joy in raising a family and watching these three fine young adults make their way in life. Glen's attitude was always cheerful and upbeat, even through this final long illness. We wish to thank Cancer Care Northwest in Spokane, Hospice of Spokane, and employers Spokane Teachers Credit Union and Northpointe Retirement Community for their compassionate support to both Glen and Nancy. Glen was preceded in death by his mother Elaine and his nephew Ryan. He is survived by his wife Nancy; their children Kara, Myra, and Benjamin; father Howard Hickman; sister Sheree (John) Wilkinson; brother Russell Hickman; nephew John Wilkinson; numerous aunts, uncles, cousins; and many friends.
