Glenn was born April 14, 1963, the second child to Slim and Dolly in Penticton, BC. Cherryl was born in March 1961, then 2 more sisters Lynda in December 1964, and Dannelle in April 1968. The family was now complete and lucky Glenn had 3 sisters to boss him around. It was often mentioned that Glenn had wanted a brother or a tonka truck for his 5th birthday the year that Dannelle was born but we all got a baby sister instead!
Dad was a truck driver and liked to move so we lived a bit of a nomadic life as children, moving lots and experiencing life in all parts of BC.
In 1975 Dad and Mom moved the family to Castlegar and it was there that the family finally settled down. Glenn attending school in Castlegar and had many friends.
In 1984, Dad, Glenn and Dannelle moved to Mackenzie after Lynda had grduated. It was in Mackenzie that Glenn found his roots. He met and married his first wife Nolah and they had 3 children – Kaylah, Kyle and Cody. Glenn was lucky enough to find love twice and has been with Marlene for the last 13 years. Glenn loved the outdoors and spent many happy years working in a mill in Mackenzie and “hanging out” with his large circle of friends.
Glenn passed away in St. Paul’s Hospital in Vancouver on July 1, 2012 with his loving family surrounding him. Glenn’s passing was peaceful and we know that he is now in heaven trying to convince mom and dad that “it wasn’t me – it was her”.
Predeceased by his mother in 1982 and his father in 2006.
He is survived by his partner Marlene, children Kaylah, Kyle and Cody. Also left to mourn his loss are his 3 sisters; Cherryl (Murray), Lynda (Tom) and Dannelle (Andre). Nieces and nephews Jennifer,
Rosalyn and Wesley, Brandea, Dylan and Cassidy
This day is remembered and quietly kept,
No words are needed, we shall never forget,
For those we love don’t go away,
They walk beside us every day.
Unseen and unheard, but always near,
So loved, so missed, and so very dear.
