Glen Duane Paulson passed away Sunday, August 8th, 2021, at Elmhurst Commons in Braham, MN at the age of 92.

Glen was born August 1st, 1929 in Wadena, MN, to Marie Paulson. He was an only child but fortunate to have been raised by a village, including his grandparents and great grandmother Dauchy.

Glen graduated from Menahga High School and immediately enlisted in the military. He served 3 years in the Army and 4 years in the Navy.

He met the love of his life, Beverly Leaf, at the Isanti County Fair and they were united in marriage in December 1954. They made their home in Grandy, MN, St. Augustine, FL, Burley, ID and settled in Braham, MN.

Glen worked for Dahlman Manufacturing for 43 years starting as a truck driver and retiring as Director of Development & Engineering. His employment brought him all over the United States and the world, including Japan, Israel and Canada. He was passionate about working with the rural farmers, setting up and servicing harvesters. His service was requested by many farmers and through this he created lifelong friends.

His interests broadened with retirement which included gardening to the fullest, winning an award for “garden of the year”. Potatoes were his specialty and his were the finest. His innovative mind built many creative projects that left many in awe. Glen was a member of the Braham Evangelical Lutheran church and a charter member of the Braham VFW Post 1731.

His family was the true pride and joy of his life and he expressed this often. Our home was a refuge to many of our friends who lived with us and he welcomed them all. His kind spirit and love of mankind will live on through many. He was an ordinary man who lived an extraordinary life.

He is survived by Beverly, his wife of 66 years; son Greg (Nellie) Paulson; daughters, Mary Paulson, Charlotte (Randy) Husom, Charrie (Randy) VanVleet, Kris (Jon) Stull, and Tammy (Randy) Auger, 17 grandchildren, 38 great grandchildren, and 4 great great grandchildren, many other relatives and friends.

  1. Somehow, I thought he would live forever. He truly was a “jack of all trades” ~ wasn’t anything he couldn’t do. His engineering mind was unbelievable! But his love for family was what I loved most about him ~ it was a love that was unwaivering. Heaven gained a GREAT man.

  2. What an awesome husband, father and grandfather and much more. You will be missed. See you down the road through heaven’s pearly gates. Prayers and hugs to all your family and friends

  3. Bev and family. I always enjoyed traveling with Glen. He taught me alot about people, and how to deal with them. Your family has been friends with ours and we miss him. You will all be in our thoughts and prayers.

  4. He was a kind and gentle man. He had the best potatoes ever! My love and condolences to the family.

  5. I never had the privilege of meeting Glenn but I know the deep respect and fond regard I feel for his daughter, Char. And have enjoyed hearing her tell about her Dad and it is so obvious the depth of love she holds for him. Sympathy and care to his family and all those who grieve his passing. May memories comfort and peace be yours.
