Glen Carlile

January 2, 1927 — September 21, 2022



Frederick Glen Carlile returned home to his Heavenly Father September 21, 2022 at the age of 95 from causes incident to age.

Glen was born in Heber City, Utah on January 2, 1927 to Frederick Giles Carlile and Sarah Todd and was the third of seven children. He was raised on the family farm during the great depression. Their primary sustenance during this time came from raising cattle (dairy and beef), pigs, chickens and vegetables from the family garden. He was talented at understanding how things worked and was able to fix almost anything. He used these gifts in many ways including bringing electricity to the family home and barn. An excellent athlete, Glen played on the 1944 and 1945 basketball teams for Wasatch High School, helping win back to back basketball championships in the state of Utah.

Glen was drafted in January of 1945 and was inducted into the army at Fort Douglas, Utah just nine days after high school graduation. He took his training at Fort Riley, Kansas where he was assigned to the signal corps. After graduation from boot camp, he was sent to Berlin, Germany and was assigned to the 78th Infantry Division as part of the Army of Occupation. After shipping home, he was discharged at Fort Dix, New Jersey in December of 1946 with the rank of a T-4 Technical Sergeant. He always expressed gratitude for his military experience and the opportunity he had to serve his country.

Upon returning home, Glen received his call to serve as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints laboring in the Western Canadian Mission from 1947-1949. He shared the truthfulness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to all who would listen.

Glen attended Brigham Young University with his three brothers. On June 5, 1953, he was sealed to Janice Ellen Johnson in the Manti Utah Temple. Together they are the parents of 5 children: Denese, Alan Glen, Mark James, Julie and Brian Frederick. He received his undergraduate degree from BYU and later attended Arizona State University where he earned a Masters of Science degree in chemistry. The family settled in Fremont, California and called it home for more than 50 years. Glen and Janice loved living in Fremont, making lifelong friends and having many adventures together.

Glen was a mathematics teacher and taught at Wasatch High School in Heber City, Utah as well as Washington High School, Irvington High School and Mission San Jose High School all in Fremont, California. He retired from teaching in 1986. Together, he and Janice built a tax business that he was actively involved in well into his 90’s. He had an extremely sharp mind for numbers.

Glen was a lifelong and faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He served in many Stake and Ward callings. Glen and Janice spent over forty years serving in the Oakland Temple and Oakland Family History Center. They also served many years as service missionaries to the Laotian Branch in Alameda, California.

Glen was faithful and humble as a disciple of Jesus Christ, knowing the truth and teaching his children by example and expectation. When asked by his children why he remained faithful to the Gospel of Christ his response was always, “Because I know better and so do you!”. Glen was devoted to his wife and family, always making sure they were taken care of.

He is survived by his wife of 69 years, Janice Johnson Carlile, and children, Alan Glen Carlile (Patti) of Brentwood, Tennessee, Mark James Carlile (Jonna) of Fremont, California, Julie Price (Gary) of Farmington, Utah and Brian Frederick Carlile (Shelly) of West Jordan, Utah. He leaves behind a loving posterity of 18 grandchildren and 30 great grandchildren. He is also survived by his brother Thomas F Carlile of Orem, Utah and sister Carol Weller of Marion, Utah.
