Glen Lyman Carver is my father's father and holds a very special place in my heart. Grandpa's birthday was July 17th and mine is the 18th so I always felt a special bond with him in that way. He was a small and quiet man, standing only 5' to 5'2, and I never heard him say more than a few words each

Grandpa Carver

Colaborador: Hubbamax0 Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

Glen Lyman Carver is my father's father and holds a very special place in my heart. Grandpa's birthday was July 17th and mine is the 18th so I always felt a special bond with him in that way. He was a small and quiet man, standing only 5' to 5'2, and I never heard him say more than a few words each time we visited he and Grandma but those he said were almost always in the form of a tease. He had a mischievous twinkle in his eye and just a hint of a grin on his face as he lovingly poked at us his with his cane or lightly pinched our arms or waists as we walked by him. I remember one time when I was about 13 when a friend and I went by bus from Salt Lake City to Sunset to spend a week with them. It was a sweet, treasured time for me. Grandpa and grandma met at a dance and married when he was 22 and she was 21. Grandpa had more than his share of heartache. His mother died when he was not quite 8, leaving four children, grandpa, an older sister and a younger brother and sister. His father married a wonderful woman, Afton, five years later who raised grandpa and his three siblings along with 8 more children added to the family in the years that followed. My parents always spoke of Afton with such love and said she was a wonderful mother to them all. Grandpa and grandma had 8 children, 2 sons and 6 daughters. My father, Dean, was the oldest child. Four daughters died in infancy or childhood and a 5th had significant health issues as the result of rheumatic fever and died in her early 30's. Grandpa and Grandma also lost a granddaughter and a grandson over their years. Family was important to them and I fondly remember playing croquet in their yard and family Christmas parties at Grandpa and Grandma's house and later in larger halls over the years. Grandpa died in December 1983, at age 82, of heart problems and was buried in Plain City, Utah, where he was also born.

Life timeline of Glen L. Carver

Glen L. Carver was born on 17 Jul 1901
Glen L. Carver was 16 years old when Tsar Nicholas II of Russia was forced to abdicate in the February Revolution, ending three centuries of Romanov rule. Nicholas II or Nikolai II, known as Saint Nicholas in the Russian Orthodox Church, was the last Emperor of Russia, ruling from 1 November 1894 until his forced abdication on 15 March 1917. His reign saw the fall of the Russian Empire from one of the foremost great powers of the world to economic and military collapse. He was given the nickname Nicholas the Bloody or Vile Nicholas by his political adversaries due to the Khodynka Tragedy, anti-Semitic pogroms, Bloody Sunday, the violent suppression of the 1905 Russian Revolution, the executions of political opponents, and his perceived responsibility for the Russo-Japanese War (1904-1905). Soviet historians portray Nicholas as a weak and incompetent leader whose decisions led to military defeats and the deaths of millions of his subjects.
