Glenn Eugene Hambrick, 66, died April 13, 2013 at Highline Regional Hospital in Tukwila. He was born on November 14, 1946 to Glyndell and Evelyn (Horn) Hambrick in Santa Rosa, CA. He was preceded in death by his parents and his older brother David Weeks. Glenn graduated from Analy Union High School, Sebastopol, CA, in 1964 and entered military service in the US Air Force that summer.

While stationed at McChord Airforce Base in August 1965, he met Judith Ann Weaver, the love of his life, at The Evergreen Ballroom. They married three years later on August 25, 1968, celebrating 44 years of matrimony in 2012.

He was a Sergeant stationed in Vietnam during the Tet Offensive of 1968, and was honorably discharged later that year. Upon returning to the US, he and Judi settled in Tumwater, WA. His career included working as a surveyor for the Washington State Dept. of Natural Resources, and several positions with the Dept. of Transportation, where he retired as the Prequalification Engineer for contract administration and award in July 1996.

Glenn was an avid outdoorsman who enjoys backpacking and camping in the Olympics. He loved to fish the Cowlitz River, especially when steelhead were running, as well as the Deschutes River and Porter Creek for rainbows. As a young man, he often hunted alongside Judi’s father Orin and brother Duane.

He attended WSU, Clark College and Centralia Community College before graduating with a Bachelor of Arts degree from The Evergreen State College in 1992.

For Glenn, no one was a stranger for long. His favorite holiday was the Fourth of July, during which he enjoyed days grilling with family and friends, and nights filled with fireworks. In retirement, Glenn enjoyed travels with his wife Judi, including trips to Europe and Mexico, and Nicaragua to visit their son while he served in the Peace Corps.

Glenn is survived by his wife Judi of Tumwater, and his son Mark of Phoenix, AZ.

A memorial service for Glenn will begin at 1:00 p.m. Friday, April 19, at Mills & Mills Funeral Home, 5725 Littlerock Rd SW, Tumwater, WA 98512, (360) 357-7743, preceded by visitation at noon. Rev. Chuck Harris of the Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd will officiate. Glenn will be laid to rest at a private burial at Masonic Memorial Park, Tumwater, on April 20. Friends and family are encouraged to provide their memories of Glenn in an online guestbook at

So sad to hear of my friend Glenn's passing. Really enjoyed my time with him at WSDOT. I remember the time he spent over at my house helping me "log some trees", the proverbial blind leading the blind; was great fun. Since we both retired, the only time I saw Glenn was when we'd run into each other at the grocery store, or some such place. I'd say, "How you doing Glenn?" And he'd go into 10 minutes of letting me know how you and Mark were doing. He was just so proud of his family. Really proud. You were his life. You and Mark. And while I won't be able to accidentally run into my old friend anymore, we can't even begin to imagine what you are now going through without Glenn. You're in our thoughts and prayers Judi.

And just like you two, my wife and I also met at the old Evergreen Ballroom...while I was in the Air Force stationed at McChord.

Everyone deserves a love that lasts a lifetime. You two were an amazing example of how two people can complete each other. I am honored to have witnessed and shared in a small fragment of your days. Thank you for allowing me the pleasure of knowing you.

I'm sorry to hear about Glenn's passing. I worked with him years ago at WSDOT when I was an attorney advising the pre-contract office. I enjoyed working with Glenn. He had a lot of expertise, which I learned from. He also was a warm and friendly person with a great sense of humor. I'm sorry for your family's loss.

Judy and Mark, Thank you so much for sharing those many of them made me smile and outright laugh. I feel lucky to have known Glenn and will always cherish the memories of his laughter and that trademark mischievous twinkle that lived in his eyes.

My deepest sympathies to Glenn's family. I worked with Glenn at WSDOT for several years before he retired. He was a great guy with lots of wit and a great sense of humor. I am so sorry to hear of his passing.

Betty and I were very sorry to hear of the passing of the love of your life. I didn't know Glenn well at all. But I remember my Dad saying how well he liked Glenn. If I remember correctly, many years ago, you and Glenn rented a duplex from my Mom and Dad. Dad often said what a nice guy Glenn was.
Our love to you Judy in this painful time.
