Gorman Glaze

November 8, 1927 — October 18, 2020


Gorman Stanley Glaze, 92, of Curtis, Nebraska, died October 18, 2020 at his home in Curtis.

Gorman Glaze was born November 8, 1927 at Wellfleet, NE. He was one of eight children of Charles "Mac" and Katherine (Ughrin) Glaze. He attended schools at Wellfleet and Maywood.

On March 28, 1947 Gorman married the love of his life Luella Thomsen. They spent the next 43 years working for Richard and Harvey Jorgensen family on a farm north of Curtis. When they left the farm and moved to Curtis, Gorman and Luella were house parents at the dormitory at the University of Nebraska School of Technical Agriculture. They made many friends with the young men and women who stayed at the dorm.

Gorman and Luella raised three children: Ron, April and Mick. They were married for 73 years.

Gorman loved to work with his hands. He had a passion for farming and gardening and loved working with horses, cattle, and all farm animals. In his later years, you could usually find him taking care of his vegetable garden or planting and caring for flowers at Senior Living Choices in Curtis.

Gorman loved his family and he was especially proud of his grandchildren and great grandchildren. He enjoyed their visits, and watching them or hearing about their participation in school activities including wrestling, rodeos, swimming, cross country and soccer. Most of them have their grandfathers determination and strong work ethic.

Gorman was a gentle man and a friend to anyone who met or knew him. He would give anything he had or do anything he could to help someone else. He was a man of few words, but his good nature and smile warmed the hearts of everyone around him. Gorman had a strong faith in God.

He is survived by his wife at home, his daughter April Reno-Seibert (David) of Arvada, CO, his son Mick (Linda) of Oberlin, KS, two sisters, Leona Nutt and Mary Ann (Bob) Mercer of Curtis, nine grandchildren, several great and great great grandchildren, along with many nieces and nephews, extended family and friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents, his son Ron, grandsons Orin Glaze, and Troy Reno, brothers Elmer, Allen, Gaylon and Charles, and sister Louise Gardner

Private services were held.
