Glen C. Dibble of Kamiah, Idaho, passed away on Monday, July 15, 2019 at 12:09 p.m. after every life saving measure was taken. He died after being diagnosed with a liver infection that lead to a multi-organ failure. His loving wife was at his side every chance she could get. Glen was 78 years old.
Glen is survived by his wife, Sharon Ann (Rhine); his children Dawn and her husband Jon Frame, Jason and his wife Rebecca; his grandchildren Teagan Frame, Greg Dibble, Madelyn Dibble, and Collin Frame; his brothers George Dibble and Ray Dibble; and many treasured nieces and nephews.
Glen was born in Marshfield, Wisconsin, on October 10, 1940 to George and Irene (Dawes) Dibble. He was the second youngest of 10 children being raised on a dairy farm and all the chores that went along with that life. After his senior year of high school, he enrolled in the Air Force and was stationed at Castle Air Force Base near Merced, CA. It was there that he was introduced to a tall local girl, Sharon Ann Rhine, and they married November 14, 1964.
A job transfer moved them to Oakhurst, CA in 1969 where, on one God-appointed day, Glen’s propane delivery truck sunk into a customer’s septic tank. He and those customers, Doug and Barbara Boomer have been friends ever since. At their invitation Glen and Sharon started attending church, came to know Christ and were baptized. It was in that small, loving community that they raised their children and built two houses.
For 21 years Glen was the bus driver and maintenance man for Yosemite High School retiring in 2002. In 2016 Glen and Sharon moved to Kamiah, ID and enjoyed a simple life while getting to know those that God placed in their new life.
We will have a time of remembering the life of Glen C. Dibble, who was taken from us way too soon, on August 10, 2019 from 10 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. at the Oakhurst Community Center, with food and fellowship to follow until 4 p.m.
