Glen LeRoy Albin, 85, Jordan, MN went to be with the Lord and was reunited with his wife and daughter on July 18, 2015 at the Circle of Life at St. Gertrude’s Nursing Home in Shakopee, Minnesota.  He was surrounded by family.  He was born on November 16, 1929 in Madison, South Dakota to Glen V. and Alice Leone (Bidwell) Albin.  He was raised in Wasta, SD until age 12 when the family moved to Sebeka, MN.  Glen served in the Army in the artillery division during the Korean Conflict from 1952 until 1954 when he was honorably discharged.

On July 9, 1952 Glen was united in marriage to Dorothy Marie Reul.  They lived in Wadena until 1980 when the couple moved to Fargo, ND.  Glen worked at Polman’s Trucking in Wadena, then as a mechanic at Wylie’s in Fargo until his retirement.

He attended Assembly of God and St. John Lutheran Church.  Glen enjoyed hunting, fishing, and reading history and western books.  He also liked listening to country western music.  Glen cherished the time spent with his family, 5 daughters and 1 son.

His wife Dorothy died March 1998 and his daughter Jackie passed away in November, 1996.  He is survived by his daughters, Linda Swenson, Susan (Rueben) Patson, Judy (Mark) Moratis, Sally (Calvin) Schultz; and son, Jason (Lorraine) Albin; brothers, Orville and Gary Albin; sisters, Dorothy, Sherrill (Dean); 10 grandchildren; 12 great-grandchildren; and numerous nieces and nephews.

    My Dad was a great Father. Most of all, he was just MY Dad. He was a simple quite man but his ethics and moral value ran deep. When I was a child I remember him putting in long hard days as a diesel mechanic without complaint. Many times having to be called back out all hours of the night to help stranded truck drivers who broke down in the middle of their routes. Whether it was bitter winter storms or trucks in the ditch he served them all. He loved one woman for 47 years. Did his best raising 5 daughters and one son.
    His life was not without grief, he lost a daughter tragetically and 18 months later lost his wife to cancer. He remained faithful to his family, doing what he could to provide for their needs. As time went on he was able to move to Jordan Mn to an assisted living facility just blocks from my house. I was able to spend valuable time with him the last two years which I will cherish for the rest of my life. Going to miss you Dad until we meet again on the other side.
