Glen Rosentrater, 82, passed away peacefully June 12, 2013, surrounded by family and friends, at the Callaway Hospital.
He was born March 15, 1931, in Arnold. Glen was a loving husband, dad and grandpa and great-grandpa who loved his family. Glen graduated from Arnold High School, and met his wife, Ruth Woodward, while on a double date with his brother Paul, and later wife, Nola Leach, also from Callaway. Throughout their nearly 60 years of marriage, Glen and Ruth lived south of Arnold on the farm, except for two years while Glen was in the U.S. Army.
Glen enjoyed a challenging career of farming, his involvement as an elder at the Tallin Church, showing hospitality to visiting missionary families and home Bible studies. In the mid 1980′s Glen began driving the school bus for the Arnold School District and continued for 25 years.
Glen was preceded in death by his parents, Albert and Agnes Rosentrater; and his sister-in-law, Nola Rosentrater.
