January 21, 1937 – December 30, 2020
On December 30, 2020 our dad Glen passed away quietly.
He will be dearly remembered and greatly missed by his six children: Laurie, Karen (Steve), Janice, Jack (Rebecca), Kathy, Troy (Maria), and his ten grandchildren Jakoby, Desirae, Dylan, Sydney, Grayson, Seth, Kyle, Tori, Nate and Maks.
Glen grew up on the family farm in Handel, Saskatchewan with his 10 siblings. He enjoyed sharing stories of them all growing up and over the years kept in touch with many trips to visit.
As a young man Glen served in the RCAF before starting his family and eventually moving to Alberta and settling in Lacombe. He tried his hand at many things before starting a commercial painting company which he operated until his retirement. Another aspect of this company was tree trimming and removal.
Glen and his crew (which through the years included his kids) could often be seen in Lacombe. Never afraid to take on the “Big Job” his business was quite successful and he was most often called by referral for either service.
Glen was an energetic man with a bright personality who could strike a conversation with anyone, anywhere. Glen was very passionate about any project he took on, which always showed in the scale and craftsmanship, whether it was model trains, pet canaries or woodworking.
He was always on the go, and if there was no work to be done, a project was always there to keep him busy. He will be fondly remembered for his wit and storytelling, and always whistling a tune, especially when working.
In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Glen may be made to The Alzheimer’s society of Alberta: firstname.lastname@example.org
A memorial service will be held at a future date.
