Walter Glenn Allaback passed away surrounded by his loving family on May 5th, 2013. Glenn was born in Elko, Nevada on March 7, 1925 to parents Hattie and Lloyd Allaback. He was raised on ranches until he joined the Navy in 1942, spending 3 years in the Pacific. On returning home he met Patricia Robertson, whom he married in 1948. They shared 65 wonderful years together. They had 5 children, 2 boys and 3 girls. Darrell (deceased) and wife Cynthia, Pamela, twin girls; Bonnie and Connie, Gary and his wife Jeannie.

Glenn retired from Nevada Division of Forestry, a job he loved. He spent many years riding with John Ascuaga's cattle drive, which he also loved.

His favorite pastimes were camping, hunting and fishing with the family, including the large family picnics and get togethers on all the holidays and birthdays.

Glenn was a great handyman, always taking care of the house and yard. He will be terribly missed by all of us. A family memorial service is pending. Please visit the website for pictures and more information.
