Sertoman of the Day:  We have a SOD and it’s Glenn Combellick.

Glenn Combellick returned for another round of storytelling.

Glenn Combellick was born in Billings, MT on May 8th, 1924. He lived, attended school and fished there until he left to join the Navy from 1946-1948 & never left the US.  While there, he got into playing marbles and, at the age of 12 and won the City Tournament. He also won the next year and he says those were his “athletic years”, 1936 and 1937, when he was in junior high school.  Glenn played marbles in the dirt lot next to his house so much he had dirt embedded in his hand. He says he was a “good” kid and didn’t get caught doing anything bad.

Glenn graduated from high school in 1941 and was in the Navy from Dec. 3rd, 1942 until Sep. 29th, 1945. He stayed in the States the whole time, being trained. Then he came to Denver and graduated at DU in 1948, followed by passing his CPA exam and into private practice in Englewood for 27 years until he retired in 1976 at 52 years old. Married Vernie Aug 29, 1948 and has 4 kids, 8 grandkids and 2 great grandchild.  He indicated his son in Alaska retired this year and will continue to live in Alaska.

Glenn has been a member of Arapahoe Sertoma since 1955 and brought into the club by the charter President. Back then there were 80 members.  Thanks for being part of the club, Glenn.   Glenn showed a model of a Stearman airplane he flew and seemed to enjoy waving it around while talking about it.     Listen to Glenn Combellick.mp3
