Obituary

PLAIN CITY-Glen Herrscher Redd, 49, returned to his loving Heavenly Father November 17, 2007. Glen lived a full and productive life of service. He was an example to all he met and the love he shared always for his family, friends and Savior.

He was born June 17, 1958 to James Prince Redd and Celestine Herrscher in Ogden Utah. He married Cindi Crook, the love of his life September 14, 1989, in the Salt Lake Temple for time and all eternity. Together they had three beautiful children Clint (15), Lexi (14) and Kadi (11) whom he was so proud of. He enjoyed spending time with his children, whether it was attending their athletic events, concert performances, board games or traveling. He was adored by his children, nieces and nephews. He was always in the middle of the group, a true kid at heart.

Glen was a naturally gifted athlete. He played for Ogden High where he was an All State football player. He lettered three times in baseball, and twice in football. His jersey, #30, is the only jersey to have ever been retired. He played at BYU where he was a three year starter, twice selected to the WAC Defensive Team. Glen anchored the defense in the amazing game now referred to as “The 1980 Miracle Bowl.” He fondly called his tenure at BYU as “The Glory Years.”

Glen played for the New Orleans Saints from 1981 – 1986. During his rookie year, he started every game at middle linebacker. Glen was an outstanding linebacker known for his hard hits and punishing tackles and his kind gentle manner off the field. He preferred being “the hitter and not the hittee.” He led the Saints in tackles in 1981 and 1985.

He loved the outdoors; fly fishing, tying his own flies, and hunting were hobbies he enjoyed with his family, nephews, brothers and friends.

He was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. His testimony was evident through his diligent devotion to his callings. He loved working with the young men and teaching in the Elders Quorum. He was a faithful Home Teacher and constantly shared his love for the Savior and gospel not only while serving as a Stake Missionary, but also through his everyday example.

Following Pro-football, he was employed by Redd Roofing Company and Usana.

He is survived by his brothers: Bryan (April), Lance (Vickie), Frank (Tara Lynn). Sisters: Cindy (Roger), and Tina. He was preceded in death by his Mother and Father, James and Celestine Redd.

Funeral services will be held 11:00 a.m. Wednesday, November 21 at the Plain City Stake Center 4630 West 2150 North, Plain City, Utah. Friends may call at the church Tuesday from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. and Wednesday from 9:30 to 10:30 a.m.
