Glenn Richard Gadeberg

April 13, 1962 - January 15, 2016


Glenn Richard Gadeberg passed away on Friday, January 15, 2016; in the arms of his loving wife. He was a devoted, caring, and loving husband, father, grandpa, brother, and uncle.

Glenn was born April 13, 1962, the third of four children to Robert and Gaye Gadeberg. He attended Onalaska High School and Western Washington University. After college, Glenn decided to join the United States Air Force. He served his country proudly for four years. During those four years he served two tours in Saudi Arabia.

Glenn married Sherry J. Gadeberg on May 26, 1984, with family and friends as witnesses. Together they had two children. A son, Craig R. Gadeberg; and a daughter, Danielle M. Gadeberg. While Glenn was serving his country they moved out of state but after leaving the service decided to move back to Washington State. After a few years they decided to live the rest of their lives together in Everson, WA.

Returning to Washington State, Glenn worked for various contractors and eventually BP Cherry Point Refinery. After spending 26 years at Cherry Point working along side everyone not only did they become coworkers and friends but they became his family. He loved his job and could not see himself doing anything else.

Glenn and Sherry shared their love for one another in a way that everyone around them could see. It shown through their eyes and smiles when they were around each other. They were each other’s everything. They loved to travel together, and every year on their anniversary they would spend a week in Las Vegas, Nevada coming home full of new stories with lots of pictures to share.

Glenn was always full of life and laughter. You could always find him either watching football (the Seattle Seahawks were his favorite) or out on the golf course trying for his hole-in-one. He could do anything he set his mind to and was always there to lend a helping hand. Glenn was very proud of his family, especially his two children.

Glenn is survived by his wife, Sherry Gadeberg; his children, Craig Gadeberg and Danielle Gadeberg; and two of his brothers, Mike Gadeberg and Kevin Gadeberg. He is preceded in death by his parents Robert and Gaye Gadeberg; his brother, Doug Gadeberg; and his Granddaughter, Zaria Gadeberg.

A memorial service will be held Saturday, January 30, 2016 at 1:00 PM at Living Water Fellowship, 4767 Guide Meridian, Bellingham, WA 98226. With a reception to immediately follow.

“You will be missed, for you were so dearly loved. But we know you are enjoying holding your granddaughter again, catching up with your parents, and planning excursions with your brother. For we know you will be waiting, for us to be together again.”

  1. We are so thankful for having you and your family as our friends–More like family though. Remembering the burger n baked beans cook outs in those beautiful Niceville, FL. apartments(then nap time afterwards on you guys couch), playing putt putt golf (oops the kid fell out of the stroller), “Craigie” as a toddler sitting in your lap then jumped up and smashed your lip wide open how you held your cool on the whole ordeal. We can’t forget about those beach times either with all us. When we visited you guys as we traveled to Anchorage, Alaska (Elmendorf AFB) where I had to pull you out of the car dealers office when I was looking for a vehicle because they tried pulling some unethical “stuff”—Thank you for having my back but the with us “possibly” going to jail was not a good idea. Then there was that one time we… Oops–Scratch that one–OH BOY good times BUDDY. WE LOVE YOU–NEVER FORGOTTEN!!!!! Love Randy, Tanya, Joshua, Brittany and Brett.

    I am sorry for your loss. It is difficult to deal with the loss of someone you love. 2 Corinthians 1:3,4 reminds us that God is always there to comfort us. I pray this helps you and your family.

    So sad to hear this. Had a ton of fun with those boys when we were kids and our parents would take us to Lake Roesiger. Will send good vibes form our family to yours. Love ya’ the Droll girls

  4. Glenn was a favorite of mine, as were all the Gadeberg boys. In Ag class, FFA, sports he was always there doing whatever was asked and more. He never backed down from a challenge or the chance to help. My heart felt sympathy for his family and friends.

  5. My heart goes out to you all at this time of loss and sadness. May you soon find happiness and joy in the memories that you hold forever in your hearts. Love you all so much, thoughts and prayers go out to you all
