On April 15, 2021, Moab lost one of its kindest longtime residents.

Glen Thayne was born in Wellington, Utah, to David and Hattie Thayne on March 1, 1927.

Glen had a passion for the outdoors which he expressed through his many talents. He was a gunsmith, taxidermist, wildlife artist, bowyer, green thumb and was known to always have a fishpond in his backyard. Most of all, he enjoyed people and spending time with family and friends.

Glen was preceded in death by his parents, four brothers and three sisters; his wife, Connie Knight; his sons Valdee and Dirk Adams; his daughter, Candy Adams Wade; and his grandson, Elvis Tyler Adams.

He is survived by his son, Griff (Mickey) Thayne of Wellington; his daughters, Doni (Mike) Corbin and Tara (Mario) Richardson of Moab; his brother, Lloyd (Ruth) Thayne of La Sal; several nieces and nephews; and his 11 grandchildren, 18 great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild.
