Dr. Glen David Moyes
Dr. Glen David Moyes passed away peacefully with his family by his side, June 5 th 2023 from
complications of ALS. He was born December 30 th 1947 in Ogden, Utah. He was the eldest son of
Glen Bitton and Erma DeCorso Moyes.
Glen attended Ogden City schools and graduated from Ben Lomond High School in 1966. Shortly
thereafter he enlisted in the United States Marine Corps and served a tour of duty in the Vietnam War.
After serving his country, he returned back to the states and continued his education. He obtained his
Bachelors of Science degree from the University of Utah in Management and Accounting, a Masters of
Business Administration from UNLV, and his Doctorate of Business Administration from Alliant
International University. He taught accounting and finance classes in colleges and universities from
California to New York, and many places in between, even extending to Saudi Arabia. He left a lasting
personal and professional impression on his students, and they still kept in contact with him over the
years. He continued his research throughout his tenured years as a professor, and into his retirement as
well. He co-authored numerous research publications and received awards for his contributions to the
business, finance, and accounting arenas.
He is preceded in death by his father Glen Bitton Moyes, his mother Erma DeCorso Moyes, younger
brother Gary Kay Moyes and nephew Ryan Gerald Nielsen. He is survived by his sister Vicky Ann
(Chad) Nielsen, niece Bridgette Marie (Doug) Hooton and great niece Tenley Ryan Hooton, nephew
Travis Nielsen and great niece Abigail Judd.
He was a very generous, giving and loving person, that extended to his family and friends. He
absolutely loves his cats, and treated them like his children. What made Glen the happiest was seeing
how his giving nature made others so happy.
Anyone that knew Glen, knew that he definitely lived in excess. If having one of something was good,
then having 10 of the same thing was even better. This was a standing joke within his inner circle.
Glen still remained so positive in his short but difficult battle with ALS. In his last few months, he was
not able to move or speak, and communication with those around him was very difficult. He would
smile when he'd see his family, friends and caregivers.
The family would like to sincerely thank the hospitalists and neurologists at Mckay-Dee Hospital that
were so dedicated to testing and begin treatments for his newly diagnosed ALS. The staff of South
Davis Community Hospital provided excellent cares and support not only to Glen, but to his family as
well. In his final moments South Davis Home Health and Hospice guided Glen from his difficult
journey, pain free and in a very loving and supportive environment.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you please make a donation to Best Friends Animal Society, or a
animal humanitarian program of your choice.
A memorial service celebrating Glen's life will be held at a later date.
