Glendell Duane Weisenburger, 83, of Missoula passed away on 11/16/2019 at St. Patrick Hospital of natural causes. Glendell was born March 7th, 1936 in Tuttle, North Dakota. He was the 7th out of 14 children born to John and Lydia Weisenburger. He grew up working on the family farm and attending school in Tuttle.
On June 28th1959 he married Betty Kay Nelson. They celebrated their 60th Wedding Anniversary last summer. The couple lived in Tuttle until 1966, where Glendell owned and operated the local Blacksmith Shop and sang with two of his brothers in the “Weisenburger Trio.” In 1966 they moved to Missoula where he worked for Westmont Tractor for several years as a Welder Fabricator. He retired from Smurfit Stone Container in 1998 where he was a highly regarded and talented Welder Fabricator for 15 years.
He was a member of the Missoula Trap and Skeet Club for decades where he was well known for regularly shooting 25’s. He passed on his passion for trap shooting to his children and grandchildren. He was an avid snowmobiler and a longtime member of the Missoula Snow Goers Club, the Seeley Lake Snow Drifters, and Grace United Methodist Church. He also had great times hunting prairie dogs with his two best friends, Court Lee and Jack Peterson.
Glendell was incredibly proud of his home on Lake Inez where he enjoyed 30 years of family fun; boating, waterskiing, snowmobiling and 4-wheeling. These were treasured memories for his family and friends. He was renowned for his meticulously cared for lawn and his impeccably clean garage and vehicles.
He was a hard-working man who was always whistling his favorite tune while he worked. A true family man and people person, where no one was a stranger, Glendell was a friend to many. His quick wit and teasing nature will never be forgotten. Endlessly proud of his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, he was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather and father figure. We love you Glendell, Dad, Grandpa and Papa.
Preceded in death by: His parents, siblings and in-laws, Rachel (Julius) Wolff, Maynard (Maxine), Shirley Gruebele, Mildred Rask, Stanley, Leon, Donnie, Gary, Vivian Weisenburger, Jim Clapham, and grandson-in-law Josh Tripp.
Survivors include his wife, Betty, Missoula; daughters Tami (Ed) Alexander, Frenchtown, Kim (Brad Holtorf) Sizemore, Covington, WA; Sharla (Tom) Dauenhauer, Seeley Lake; grandchildren Tanna Gushiken, Cody (Tara) Weisenburger, Rachelle Tripp, Dustin Weisenburger, Jacob, Joseph Alexander, Bryce Sizemore, Dani (Bryan) Thueringer, Bridger, Andy and Blaine Dauenhauer; great grandchildren Brayden Crusch, Bentli and Finley Weisenburger; siblings, Wilbert (Debbie) Weisenburger, Garold, Arley (Sylvia) Weisenburger, Gladys Clapham, Janice (Andy) Anderson, brother in law Vern Rask and sisters in law Julie and Eunice Weisenburger; many nieces and nephews.

Our memories are from the time Glendell operated the Tuttle Blacksmith shop and sang with his brothers. It was always fun to visit the Weisenburger farm because there was something exciting go on all the time. Some times on the naughty side which made it more fun.
We extend our deepest sympathy to Betty and all the family.

Betty, Mike and Sue Wehmeyer here but currently in AZ. We are so sorry to hear of Glen's passing. Mike says he owes his welding and fabricating career to Glen. I don't know you two very well but when I saw you two you were both very nice. Mike admired Glen immensely and so did his parents, Sally and Ray, who have both passed. Sincere condolences, Mike and Sue.
