GLYN GILMAN'S OBITUARY
A TRIBUTE IN PICTURES
But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; they shall walk, and not faint.
It is a sad day as I sit here trying to clear my mind and type through the tears. Even though we all knew that this day was coming, it does not make it any easier. "Papa" went to be with Jesus earlier today.
Those who knew him would agree that Glyn Gilman was an amazing man. I would go as far as saying that Glyn was the greatest man I ever personally knew ---- a Godly man of impeccable character ---- a man whom I pray my son emulates as he himself becomes a man.
Glyn was not only one of the funniest, smartest, and wittiest men I have ever been around, he was undoubtedly one of most loving, most giving, and most humble as well. He was also the toughest. Debilitated in his later years by the after-effects of childhood polio (Post-Polio Syndrome), Glyn was a modern-day JOB who never complained about the cards life had dealt him. And despite his physical adversities, his faith was on display for all to see ---- a life constantly, consistently, and purposefully lived as a witness for Christ. Like the old timers like to say, "He cut a wide swath". As a long-time teacher / coach / principal, "Mr Gilman" touched countless lives and will be sorely missed by all who knew him. We love you.
Glyn Wendell Gilman, age 75, of Imperial MO went home to The Lord Saturday April 20, 2013. Glyn was born January 15, 1938 in Belgrade, MO. Glyn is survived by his wife Mary Lou Gilman, his daughter, Amy Schierling (Russell), his son Randy Gilman (Joy) and six grandchildren Malachi, Michaela, Grace Adelyn (Schierling) Keira and Jackson (Gilman). His sister Ladonna Whaley (Orville), his brother Jim Gilman (Donna) and sister Robin Dickmann (Doug). Glyn was preceded in death by his parents,Clyde and Dorothy Gilman and sister Clyta Richart. Husband, father, brother, paw-paw, teacher, coach and friend to many, he will be missed! Those of you who knew Glyn will understand why one of his favorite verses was Isaiah 40:31
Dr. Schierling completed four years of Kansas State University's five-year Nutrition / Exercise Physiology Program before deciding on a career in Chiropractic. He graduated from Logan Chiropractic College in 1991, and has run a busy clinic in Mountain View, Missouri ever since. He and his wife Amy have four children (three daughters and a son).
