Glenn A. Watts, age 84, of Grand Junction, CO went to be with God on December 31st, 2020.
Glenn was the eldest of 3 children, born to William A. and Doris M. Watts in Arvada, Colorado. After
Glenn married his first wife Betty, he was drafted into the U.S. Army for the Korean War where he was
stationed at Fort Lewis in Tacoma, Washington. Upon discharge from the Army, Glenn returned to
Colorado to start Watts Construction building custom homes. Some of his custom log homes can be
seen predominantly on the Western Slope of Colorado. Glenn lived mainly in Montrose, Colorado where
he met and married his third wife Lynnda. They resided in Montrose for a few years until they relocated
to Grand Junction, Colorado where he resided until his passing from natural causes.
Glenn and his brother David were rough stock riders in the very first Little Britches Rodeos in Littleton,
Colorado. Glenn acted as an Angel by saving his brother’s life by loading him on his horse and racing
home for help after David was accidentally shot by a friend during a camping trip. He also saved a young
man from an electrocution death while on a job site.
Glenn was happiest being outdoors where he enjoyed guiding, outfitting, horseback riding, and pack
trips around the White River National forest. Glenn loved rifle hunting, bow hunting, and fishing. Glenn
never missed a Denver Broncos football game and he lived for football Sundays. Glenn enjoyed gold
panning, wood working, leather tooling, and showing off his Classic 1955 Ford Crown Victoria
convertible. He also loved gambling and playing video poker, and quite often won! Glenn also was an
avid reader of Western novels and loved collecting “The End of The Trail” and Native American art.
Glenn’s eyes twinkled when enjoying a good laugh and had a great, ornery sense of humor. He never
met a stranger. He loved the music of his grandchildren’s laughter and enjoyed watching his grandsons
Glenn is survived by daughters Leslie and Kasey, grandsons Cody and Kyle, granddaughter Alex, brother
David and his wife Bobbi, stepson Lane, and several nieces and nephews. He also is survived by the Hess
family of Olathe, CO. He is preceded in death by his parents, wife Lynnda, and sister Kathy.
A Celebration of Life ceremony will be announced at a later date.
