Glen Bolingbroke
Glen Ephraim Bolingbroke, 77, passed away Thursday evening, July 12, 2012 at a local care facility. He was born April 10, 1935 to Ephraim and Zella Daniels Bolingbroke. He was raised on the family farm in Arbon Valley, and at a young age developed his talents and skills in knowing how electricity worked. He used this skill in working with radios. Also at this young age, he developed a skill in repairing wrist watches which he did for many years. And when television came to the valley, there was not a thing he did not understand about it, and developed an excellent system of receiving signals from Salt Lake City.
Glen always wanted to learn during his life and was an avid reader of everything related to science and electronics. He pursued his education at Idaho State University and received his Electronics Certification, and later he continued his education, receiving his B.S. Degree in Physics.
Glen also had many skills in repairing farm machinery, and he was able to repair all of the farm machinery that broke down. He was able to keep the machinery working for many years on the farm.
While his primary interest was in farming, he continued to increase his education by taking classes at Idaho State University during his active years. He was considered an excellent farmer, and he raised good crops every year. He always said how thankful he was to live in the beautiful Arbon Valley and he never wanted to live anywhere else.
He was a member of the Community of Christ Church, and read all of the scriptures and believed very strongly in the promises for a good life that were written in the books. He knew very well all of the scriptures and studied them all of his life and believed strongly in the new life after this one on Earth.
He is survived by two brothers, John Ronald (Donna) Bolingbroke of Phoenix, AZ, and Dale A. Bolingbroke of Arbon. A brother, Gerald Bolingbroke passed away five years ago, and his wife Pat keeps in close contact with the family. He also has one nephew, and three nieces.
