Glenn B. Huntsman

December 31, 1934 — December 23, 2023

Bozeman

Glenn B. Huntsman, 88, of Bozeman, passed away December 23, 2023. Glenn was born December 31, 1934, the youngest of three children, to Alvin "Jack" Huntsman and Hazel (Baker) Huntsman. He lived in Bozeman his entire life and graduated from the "original" Gallatin High School in 1953. Right after high school he joined the army where he served until 1955. Glenn was stationed in Okinawa, and his job was to write information backwards (mirror or reverse writing) on a glass board so that people on the other side could read the information correctly. You can imagine how this messed up his writing for a few years!


After returning from the army, Glenn married Margaret "Mugs" Atkins in January of 1956. Big sports fans that they were, on their honeymoon, traveled to Butte to watch the Bozeman Hawk/Butte basketball game. They would pass that love of sports, and many other things, onto their three kids.


Glenn worked for the City of Bozeman for 28 years (1956-1984). During that time, he also worked evenings for the TOI theaters as the assistant relief manager. There he made many long and enduring friendships, including Ron Lewis. Glenn also worked in the building trades for 16 years before retiring.


By far the greatest joy of Glenn's life was his family. He is survived by his high school sweetheart and wife of 68 years, Margaret "Mugs"; his three kids who were blessed with the best Dad ever, Cindy, Bruce, and Kelly; grandkids, Kodi Huntsman and Shane Huntsman (Jessie Andrew); and other close family members, Sheryl Nichols, Tina Albers, Sally Bourrie, Alvin Huntsman, Ivy Huntsman, and Tom Baker.


Dad didn't let a lot of people into his inner circle, but when he did, they became his friends and family ... Chuck Graden, Sean Rainey, Martin Dowd, Bill Norton, and Dan Gates, who we know Dad is catching up with right now.


Special and big thank you to Jim Kubiak, Karen Willet, Kim Duff, Dr. Tom Hildner, Traci Welch, Nancy Astrup, and Dan Aughney for your kindness, love, and friendship.


Glenn was one of the biggest Bozeman Hawk fans. He attended as many games and tournaments as he possibly could. One year the booster club named him "Super Booster." Along with watching high school sports, he also enjoyed spending time with his family, being outdoors, hiking, being in the mountains, woodworking, building anything and everything for family and friends, taking photos, cutting down trees, getting firewood, and catching up with friends.


Glenn was preceded in death by his parents; brother, Al; and sister, Aloma.


Dad - Not a day will go by without us thinking of you and missing you.
