Date of Funeral: Sep. 18, 2014

Stanley Glen Kossman 66 of Rupert passed away Tuesday, September 9, 2014. Glen was born May 24, 1948 in Burley, Idaho to Richard and Ella Adams Kossman. He was the fourth of nine children. He was married to Cindy Obermiller and were later divorced. He later married Virginia Jo Atkins. During Glen’s childhood years he lived in Malta, Idaho where he learned to work hard. After his dad took a full time job with the Highway District, Glen took on the responsibility of keeping the farm operating with the help of his brothers and sisters. He truly loved the farm and was heartbroken when it was sold while he was in the service. Glen went to Malta Elementary schools grades one through eight and then graduated from Raft River High School in 1967. He completed two years of college receiving his Associates degree in Agriculture from ISU. He was drafted into the U.S. Army in February 1968 and after training was sent to Vietnam. He was severely wounded there and spent several months at Madigan General Hospital in Tacoma, WA. He received the Bronze Star, Purple Heart, Vietnam service metal, and the National Defense metal. Glen worked for Western Farm Service, then worked at Simplot’s foods in Heyburn working his way up to supervisor and then to Fredrick Bean until an industrial accident forced him into medical retirement. He was a member of the Elks Lodge. Glen enjoyed hunting and fishing with his brothers, gardening and going to yard sales and auctions and collecting treasures. He enjoyed farming and raising his sheep and numerous farm animals. Glen was dealt a lot of bad hands thru out his life but he accepted what he got. You never heard him complain. He was a loving, caring man and was liked and respected by anyone who ever met him. He would never ask for anything for himself but was always willing to help others and share whatever he had. He will be missed.

Glen is survived by his children Brian (Gretchen) Kossman; Shelly (Roy) Gairett; and step children Melanie; Memorie; and Monika, Grandchildren Megan Lynn, Cody Roy Dale, Morgan Patricia, and Bridger Mark. Brothers Richard (Nancy); Kerry (Kathy); Dwaine (Joy); and Marvin, Sisters Dee Ann Meador and Eloise (Kent) Hammond. He is preceded in death by his wife Virginia Jo, Sister Wanda Hutchison, and brothers Kenneth Gayle, Harold Hutchison and Wade Mai.
