Wendell L. Glidden, of Portage, formerly of Schoolcraft passed away on Saturday, June 9, 2018 at the age of 78. Wendell was born on September 26, 1939 in Kalamazoo. He was the son of Lloyd and Camilla (Hulbert) Glidden. Wendell is described as happy, smooth, and caring. He loved to sing and watch the Detroit Tigers. You could never fool him however, with what time the Tiger game was on. Wendell was cared for the past few years by the loving staff at the Schuring Road Adult Foster Care.

Wendell is survived by his siblings: Ronald Glidden, of FL; Lee (Carla) Glidden, of Vicksburg; Thomas (Sandy) Glidden, of Climax; Elwin (Diane) Glidden, of TN; Dawn (Jack) Grosenbach, of CA; and numerous nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his parents; and three siblings: Alice Hannar, Linn Glidden, and Robert Glidden.

A funeral service will be held on Thursday, at 3pm at the McCowen & Secord Family Funeral Home, 409 S. Main, Vicksburg, Rupert-Durham Chapel, 409 S. Main, Vicksburg (269-649-1697).
