Former Bishop And Musician Died
CARDSTON, AB -- Glen Broadhead, 93 and a former Bishop in the Beazer,
AB, area and a popular local musician, passed away last Tuesday in
the Cardston Auxiliary Hospital.
The father of seven, grandfather of 39, great grandfather of 98 and
great-great-grandfather of eight began playing the piano at local
dances when he was only eight years old. His brother Parley would
accompany him with the violin. For the next 82 years he continued
playing in various local bands for countless dances.
An avid rancher, Brother Beazer also enjoyed animals, giving each of
them their own name. In addition to piano playing and ranching, he
also helped support his family by driving school buses. In fact, he
drove for 23 years straight without a single accident.
In addition to serving faithfully as a bishop, Brother Beazer, who
received a Citizen of the Year award in 1990, also enjoyed his
callings as a counsellor, scoutmaster and home teacher. He also
served a mission in Florida and one in Salt Lake City and joyfully
served as a worker in the Cardston Alberta Temple.
