Glade William Davis

December 9, 1927 — February 9, 2023

Glade William Davis completed his mortal mission peacefully in his St George Home February 9, 2023.

Born to Charles R. and Erma Louise Chugg Davis December 9, 1927 of Providence Utah {later divorced}. Glade grew up in his grandmother’s loving home where he was raised by a single mother. His childhood was surrounded by cousins and great friends who became his brothers and sisters. He inherited a strong work ethic from his mother and Grandmother during lean times, and from the hard work on his uncle’s farm. He attended South Cache High School where he played football and made life-long friends. During High School, Glade met Carol Facer who later became his eternal companion and was married for 74 years prior to her passing in 2021. They were married in the Logan temple. Prior to his marriage, Glade served our country in the Navy, on the USS Bennington in the South Pacific during WWll. As a veteran, Glade was fortunate to be recognized as part of our Country’s Honor Flight, flying back to Washington DC.

Glade and Carol raised their family in Providence and have remained there throughout their entire life. Glade has enjoyed serving his community in many different capacities such as the Mayor and City Council member. He was recently honored as the Grand Marshall of Providence City. Glade has found great joy as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, where he has served in Elder’s Quorum Presidencies and Bishoprics. He and Carol served as full-time missionaries in the Missouri Independence Mission and later together as Young-Single Adult Representatives.

Glade is a well-known as a distinguished entrepreneur. His career in the Auto Business began as a partner of the Logan Motor Company in 1952. His influence in the car business has spanned over many decades. After nearly 20 years, and several moves, Glade pushed forward through difficult times and formed Chrysler Dodge Country, USA. Within a couple of years, Glade purchased his partner’s interest and invited his 3 sons into the business. This was the beginning of the Davis Auto Group. His greatest reward in business, was to work with his sons while serving his many customers from the surrounding areas. The family business grew into the 3 different locations of Logan, Brigham City, and Tremonton. Later he assisted and partnered with the purchase of another dealership in Richfield, Utah. Glade’s influence has been tremendous to the local communities and fellow businesses. He served as the President of the Utah Auto Dealers Association and is the recipient of the Time Magazine Quality Dealer of the Year Award. Many have sought council and advice from Glade, as a proven leader in the industry. Glade sold his ownership of the Davis Auto Group to his 3 sons. The family business has since evolved into the Heritage Auto Group, where it is now being led by 3rd and 4th generations and is currently made up of 7 different dealerships throughout Utah and Wyoming.

Glade’s loyalty to family, friends, and customers is what made him special. His “can do” attitude, optimism, and personal initiative has created his belief that all things are possible. His character and integrity have had a lasting influence on those he worked with, his customers, family, and friends. If asked, Glade would say that his wife Carol has been his greatest partner and contributor to his success. Their partnership has been admired by the many who knew them.

Glade’s greatest treasure is his family. His 5 children Robert {Leslie}, Pam {Greg Thompson}, Charlie {Mary}, Bret {Tina}, Kareen {Terry Bradley}, 25 grandchildren, 73 great-grandchildren, and 7 great-great-grandchildren.
