Glen Alan Metcalf: Aug. 1, 1953 – June 22, 2017

Glen Alan Metcalf, 63, was called home by the Lord very suddenly on June 22 while recovering from cancer surgery.

Glen is survived by his loving partner Roxane Livingston; his mother Pat Metcalf; his daughter Nicole (Eric) Goss; his son Dustin (Jamie) Metcalf; his grandchildren Drew Fry, Ava Fry, Carter Metcalf, Cash Metcalf, Crosby Metcalf and Cooper Metcalf; his siblings Gary Metcalf, Pam Newman and Peggy Jankovic; and his close friends Danny West and Marc Irwin.

He was preceded in death by his father George Metcalf and his beloved dogs Miko and Yoko.

Glen was born Aug. 1, 1953, to George and Pat Metcalf. He was raised in Western Washington and graduated from South Whidbey High School. After graduation, he worked in a variety of jobs in the construction field.

He and his wife Donna had two children, Nikki and Dusty, and they made a life in Langley, on Whidbey Island, where Glen worked for WSDOT and then Whidbey Telephone Co. for many years

After he and Donna divorced in the mid-1990s, Glen moved to the Everett area, where he remained until his death.

After Glen became disabled due to debilitating back pain, he struggled with drug addiction. With the help of his family and friends, and a strong faith in God, he successfully kicked his drug addiction and spent the past 10+ years using his story of recovery to minister to others.

Glen liked to fish and spend time outdoors and had a big heart, always wanting to help others, even though he often struggled, physically and financially, himself. He was a devoted son, helping his mother with household chores and maintenance, taking her to plays and Club picnics and watching her dog when she traveled. He will be sorely missed.

Glen had a passion for mission and service to others, a tenet of his faith. In lieu of flowers, Glen’s family suggests a donation be made in his name to the Everett Gospel Mission. A memorial service will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday, July 15 at Refuge Church, 2701 Wetmore, Everett, WA.
