Glenn Everett Hotchkiss, age 94, of Wilsonville, Oregon, passed away on Wednesday, September 30, 2020. Glenn was born March 26, 1926, in Superior, Wisconsin. When Glenn was a child, the family moved around often in his school years. At the age of eighteen, Glenn was in the process of joining the Air Force, but while having required dental work he ended up being drafted by the Army. He went on to serve in the Pacific Theater during World War II. He received the Philippine Liberation Ribbon with star, the Asiatic Pacific Ribbon with star, the Army Occupation Medal of Japan, and the Victory Medal along with a Good Conduct Medal. Upon his return to stateside, he got out of the Army and lived with his family in Hillsboro, Oregon.

Glenn attended Pacific University for one year and then found a job driving a log truck in Tillamook, OR. Along the way, he drove long haul trucks and eventually started driving for Continental Baking Company. Glenn drove from Portland, Oregon to Seattle, Washington from 1957 to 1988. In 1987 he received a 30 year 2 million mile accident free award. He retired in 1988. Some of his fondest memories were annual family vacations to British Columbia and a canoe trip with son Jeff, his brother Wes and sister-in-law in Alaska. He enjoyed fishing and adventures with family and close friends. After retirement Glenn and Betty would travel to Arizona in their RV along with other destinations with lifelong friends Howard and Dorothy.

Uncle Glenn's online memorial was a wonderful tribute to him. He was always one of my very favorite people. I have many lovely memories of him throughout my life. The two of you, Betty, were a great couple.

My love and prayers to all of you at this difficult time. I know that he is wrapped in the arms of love.

Glenn was my brother-in-law and I remember having many good times with our families on our trips to Canada.
We shared many Thanksgiving Holidays and always teased him because he always had an eye looking over his shoulder wondering if he, Betty and Jeff would be able to get back home before it snowed.

He will be missed so very much, but our family has such fond memories of all our times with him.

God bless you Betty, Jeff and Family. Love, Peggy
