Glynn Boyd Petersen
1925 _ 2016

Glynn Boyd Petersen, son of Edna and Albert Petersen, was born April 28, 1925. Glynn grew up in Granger, Utah, on a small dairy farm with 1 brother and 3 sisters. Glynn attended Granite High and played for 2 years on an all-state basketball team. He served for 3 years in the Merchant Marines in WWII. Glynn attended the University of Utah and was a member of the 1947 National Invitational Championship basketball team. Glynn married Joyce Sutton in 1948. They owned and operated a clothing store, "The Best Shop" in Magna, Utah for 35 years, and retired to Arizona in 1988. They loved to golf, travel, and spend time with their family (not necessarily in that order!). While in Magna, Glynn was active in civic affairs. He was a member and president of Magna Chamber of Commerce, Magna Lions Club, SLC Planning Commission, SL County Library Board, and redevelopment agency. Glynn was a member of Riverside Country Club in Provo, Utah and a member of Union Hills Country Club in Sun City, Arizona. Joyce passed away in 1999. Glynn was fortunate to meet and marry Lou Jones in Arizona. Glynn and Lou lived several happy years between Arizona and Boise, Idaho. Glynn is survived by his wife, Lou; daughter, Lisa, grandchildren, Nate, Jenni and Chelsi, and great grandchildren, Jocelyn and Michael. He is also by one sister, Janice (Frank) Petersen. Glynn is preceded in death by his wife, Joyce; son, Greg; one brother and 2 sisters. The family would like to thank the staff and residents of Cottonwood Creek for their care and friendship over the past 2 and a half years, and Adam from Silverado Hospice. They would also like to thank Care Source for providing a place for a peaceful end to Glynn's life on October 13, 2016. A private Graveside Service for family will be held.
