Wilfred Moccasin Gladue, 64, of Green River, Wyoming left to his heavenly home to be reunited again with those that had gone ahead to wait for him; as he will be waiting for all who loved him on this earth. He was a warrior until the end but succumbed to a brief battle with cancer. He was surrounded by strong hearts as he took his last breath, and he will be terribly missed by anyone who received the eternal gift of knowing him.
Wilfred was born on April 3, 1956 to the late Alan Gladue and Marie Moccasin.. He grew up on the Saulteaux and Moosomin Reserves in Saskatchewan, Canada. He left there at a young age with the help of his Uncles to come to the U.S. to live with his father. Although he left his home country, he always had a deep love for his many relatives there, and his spiritual and cultural connection remined throughout his life.
Wilfred worked for the Jim Bridger power plant for 30 years and belonged to the Utility Workers Union of America Local 127.
The family would like to give special thanks to their Canadian family for keeping the fire burning, special thanks to his Uncle Peter, AKA Dad for his many teachings. Their many family and friends who brought so much comfort and support. Wilfred's co-workers, and Local 127.
