Glenn Mowell

June 17, 1932 – Oct. 22, 2012

Glenn Mowell, 80, of Lafayette, La., died Monday, Oct. 22, 2012, at Lafayette General Hospital, after a yearlong fight against multiple myeloma.

He was a man of few words, profoundly intelligent, a loving husband, father and grandfather and a good friend to a lucky few. He made his mark on the world with his hard work, his wisdom and quiet presence.

Glenn was born on June 17, 1932, in Greybull, Wyo., the son of Rex Mowell and Rose Peterson Mowell. He proudly joined the United States Marine Corps in 1950, serving honorably in Korea. On his return he began his lifelong career in the oil field, which led him to Bolivia where he met and married his beloved wife, Flora Alinda Chiarella Mowell. Together with their children they lived all over the world, but he always called Wyoming home.

He is survived by his wife, Linda Mowell; daughters Carla Mowell and Cindy Cormier; son John Mowell; and grandchildren Hannah Weir, Sofia Weir, Hunter Mowell, Ethan Mowell and Jason Cormier.

He was preceded in death by his mother Rose Mowell; brothers Dale Mowell and Vernon Mowell; sisters Nancy Mowell and Shirley Lassiter.

In accordance with his wishes, his remains will be scattered on the Big Horn Mountains.

The family is planning a memorial gathering this summer in Shell.
