Glenn Ulrey, 86, a Baker Valley resident, died Jan. 11, 2005, at Serenity Farms foster care home near Haines.

His funeral will be at 10 a.m. Saturday at Coles Funeral Home. The Baker City AMVETS, Post No. 1874, will accord military rites. Private interment will be at Mount Hope Cemetery. Visitations will be from noon to 5 p.m. Friday.

Mr. Ulrey was born on April 28, 1918, at Lucas, Kan., a son of John Harrison and Ada Bille Standley Ulrey. He received his education in Kansas.

He enlisted in the U.S. Army Air Corps during World War II and remained there until his retirement from the U.S. Air Force in the mid 1960s. He proudly served his country for 23 years.

Mr. Ulrey spent most of his military career in the United States and was a mess sergeant. He was stationed at the Baker Air Force Base when he retired. He purchased a ranch on Spring Creek Road; it was his hobby to work on the ranch.

Mr. Ulrey was a member of the NRA. He was honored as Citizen of the Year by the national gun rights group, Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms. Alan Gottlieb, chair of the committee said “If it weren’t for people like Glenn Ulrey, our constitutional rights would have been eroded years ago.”

He loved to talk politics, writing to his Congressman whenever a chance presented itself. He also enjoyed fishing and hunting.

Survivors include his children, Ron Ulrey of Baker City, Don and Roxy Ulrey of Baker City, Chuck and Evelyn Ulrey of Boise, David Ulrey, Steven Ulrey, Rebecca Ulrey and Donald Alan Ulrey; eight grandchildren, 12 great-grandchildren; and several nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents, brothers and sister.

Memorial contributions may be made to Pathway Hospice through Coles Funeral Home, 1950 Place St., Baker City, OR 97814.
