It is with great sadness that the family of Glen Bartholomay, 65, announce his passing on Monday, March 11, 2019 at Sanford Medical Center in Fargo, North Dakota.
Glen Allen Bartholomay was born January 8, 1954 in Lisbon, North Dakota to parents Kenneth “Bud” Bartholomay and Mary Ella Strauss Bartholomay.
Glen graduated from Sheldon High School in 1972 and immediately joined the Navy, where he served for three years.
Glen returned to the Sheldon/Fargo area and attended NDSU and Moorhead Area Technical School, where he received a degree in carpentry. In 1980, he went to work for the Soo Line Railroad, now called the Canadian Pacific. He worked there until his retirement in 2014.
Glen married his wife Cindy in 1986. They made their home in West Fargo until moving to Sheldon 1996.
Glen was a devout Catholic whose love for the Lord spilled over into every aspect of his life: his family, his friends, and his parish Our Lady of the Scapular. He was a member of the Parish Council, the Knights of Columbus, and the American Legion.
Glen and Cindy raised three amazing children and were blessed with four grandchildren, all of whom are following their grandpa’s footsteps with love for the outdoors.
Glen was patient, kind, and giving. He loved his Lord, his family, and his friends. Glen loved spending time with his siblings, hunting, fishing, wood working, gardening, and rooting for the Minnesota Twins!
Glen leaves behind his wife of 33 years, Cindy of Sheldon ; daughter, Jaime, son-in-law and friend, Mike O’Neill, their sons John and Andrew of Fargo; daughter, Samantha, son-in-law and friend, Levi Bischof, their children Ryan and Charlotte of Devils Lake; son, Daniel of Cudahy, Wisconsin; brother, Leon, (Rachelle) of Longmont, Colorado; sister, Connie (Donald) McKay of Center City Minnesota; sister, Bette (Larry) Luther of Ottawa; Kansas; sister, Shirley Roseland (Dave) of Box Elder, South Dakota; sister-in-law, Mary Bartholomay of Fargo; and numerous nieces and nephew and too many friends to name.
He was preceded in death by his parents; sister, Mary; brothers, Kenneth Jr. “Butch” and Gerald “Gerry”; and niece, Sara.
Blessed be his memory.
