Glenn Shear, who had been a resident of Grundy Center for 37 years, died at the Deaconess hospital in Marshalltown shortly after three o'clock Tuesday morning. For a number of years he had been afflicted with diabetes. Recently other complications developed and two weeks ago he was removed to the hospital for better care and treatment. He showed no response to the treatment at the hospital and continued to get weaker until the end came.

Glenn Shear, better known as "Pat" to his friends, was born at Manchester, Iowa, July 24, 1877. He moved with his parents when quite small to Spirit Lake where he grew to manhood. On October 10, 1902, he was married to Alma Hasbrouck, daughter of Ed Hasbrouck of Grundy Center. The following year the couple moved to Grundy Center where they made their home continually. Mrs. Shear died on May 9, 1929. His mother, Mrs. Martha Shear, died four days after the death of his wife. She was 92 years of age at the time. Her husband and seven children had preceded her in death. Glenn was the youngest of the family and the last of them to be called.
After coming to Grundy Center, Mr. Shear associated himself with his father-in-law and later with his brothers-in-law in the contracting and carpenter work. After he gave up the carpenter trade he owned and operated a recreation parlor in Grundy Center for several years. During late year he was associated with Fred Greenfield in the ownership and operation of a beer parlor in Grundy Center.
Pat Shear had a wide acquaintance throughout the county and when he died he left many friends.
