Ottis "Glen" Dorn, of St Hedwig, Tx has finished his last trail and has gone home to be with his child bride Alline Dorn. Glen was 91 years old and lived a full life including service in the US Navy, service as a San Antonio Fire Department Lieutenant and was inducted into the Texas Rodeo Cowboy Hall of Fame in 2003. Glen was a 32nd degree Mason. Glen was recognized as the Face of San Antonio and was well known as a Cowboy, Rodeo Announcer and Chuck Wagon cook. He also worked as a horse shoer, auctioneer, Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Brand Inspector and PR man for the Lone Star Brewery over the years. Glen is survived by his children, Glenda Dorn Porter, Pat & Brad Westberry, Clayton Dorn, Clifford Dorn, 8 grandchildren, 9 great grandchildren and 3 nephews. His extended family stretches far beyond these numbers. Glen's passing marks the end of an era of the American Cowboy and his adventures will be remembered by many.

"May your horses all be gentle and the cattle always fat".
