Glen Tyndall

Obituary: Glen Tyndall, 89, Branch.

Glen Charles Tyndall, 89, of Branch passed away on Sunday, May 10, 2020 at Grand Oaks Nursing Center in Baldwin.  Glen was born on May 21, 1930 on the Brown family farm in Colfax Township, Oceana County, the son of Eli and Vera (Brown) Tyndall.  Glen graduated from Baldwin High School with the class of 1949 and served his country during the Korean Conflict with the United States Army 369th Engineer Amphibious Support regiment.  His unit supported the Army combat troops engaged in atomic warfare maneuvers at the testing center at Camp Desert Rock, Nevada.  After his military service was completed, Glen returned home to Carr Settlement and worked with his brothers at Tyndall Brother’s Logging while also helping out on many of the family farms.  In retirement, Glen made many friends around the Big Star Lake area providing lawn care and handyman services.  Around his home you could usually find him sitting on the front porch waiting for a friend, neighbor, or family member to stop by, or out working in his garden, which he was especially proud of.  His gardening skills followed him to Grand Oaks where he very much enjoyed tending the raised flower and garden beds.

Glen was preceded in death by his parents; his brothers Virgil, Bob, and Mason Tyndall; his brother-in-law Leo Uber; and his sister-in-law Dorothy Tyndall.  He will be greatly missed by his brothers, Henry Tyndall, and Perry Tyndall (Jean Feister); his sisters, Uvilla (Keith) Stickney, and Gloria Uber; his sisters-in-law Dolores Tyndall, Barb Tyndall, and Mert Tyndall; and numerous beloved nieces and nephews, great nieces and nephews, great, great nieces and nephews, and many friends.

Graveside services with military honors will be held for Glen at 11 a.m. on Friday, May 15 at McCumber Cemetery in Branch.  Due to the COVID-19 restrictions, the funeral home visitation will be private family only.  Those who wish to make a memorial donation in Glen’s honor are asked to consider Grand Oaks Nursing Center for the garden fund, or the Carr Fire Department.
