Earlin Glenn Engen, 81, of Circle, died Friday, April 1, 2016, at the Prairie County Nursing Home in Terry.
He was born Nov. 28, 1934, in Glasgow, the first son of Glenn and Freda (Sievers) Engen. He lived there until 1937 when the family moved to Old Vida. A special birthday present arrived on Earlin’s fourth birthday when his brother Gene was born. Earlin took his father’s hand and said he wanted to go to the store and buy his new brother a rattlesnake. What he actually meant was a rattle which they purchased and Gene still has to this day.
