On Wednesday, October 27, 2021, Glen Egginton, passed away peacefully at his home in Salt Lake City, Utah due to renal failure at the age of 70. He suffered for many years and is at peace now.
Glen was born on November 14th, 1950 to Harold and Dorathy (Stoker) Egginton in Ogden, Utah and when asked his birthdate he would say that he was a Valentine’s baby, smirk, and say, “you do the math”. Glen graduated from Davis High School in 1969 and then was off to Arizona where he attended a technical college to learn computer engineering, his passion. Glen was the “OG” computer geek and absolutely loved computers. He had a large collection of AS400’s that he was quite proud of. He would really ramble on about those computers and to most of us it was as if he were speaking a foreign language. He also taught programming classes at the community college and worked for IBM. Glen served in the Army National Guard and the Coast Guard, totaling almost 8 years of service.
In 1973, Glen married Vicki Buckway and together they had two children, and later divorced. In 1980, Glen married Kandie Bell and they had a daughter, and later divorced.
Glen enjoyed photography, flying, riding his motorcycle, restoring automobiles (after all, auto mechanics IS in the Egginton blood), movies, and making a fuss over his grandchildren and grand dogs. He was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Glen is survived by his son: Steven Egginton, daughters: Carri (Rich) Segura, and Camille, 3 ¾ grandchildren: Jayden, Kaia, Rannen, and Tuva, who is on the way. He is also survived by his four brothers: Harold, Mike, Bob, and Doug.
He is preceded in death by his parents, his sister, Francine and by his grandson, Max.

Life Story Info
We have had the pleasure of knowing this amazing man for 20+ years. His knowledge was enormous, his adventure into life immense and there are no words to describe how his loyalty and friendship has meant to us. We know he is looking down upon us with a grin and no more pain.
Glen called me from the Harley Davidson Dealership in Riverdale and asked if I could explain how to use the key fob for the Harley he just purchased, it’s different from the newer bikes, so he rode to my house and I showed Glen how it worked.
He was very excited about having a Harley Davidson to ride.
So Glen keep the rubber down and keep the wind in you face while riding to any unknown adventure, may you R.I.P. .
