It is with great sadness that we must tell you that Glenn has suddenly passed away. He was predeceased by our son Matt. Glenn was a gentleman and loved his family with all his heart. Loving partner and always best friend, especially to his wife Corrie, son Clint, daughter-in-law Kim and his much loved grandson Drake. He will be missed by his brother-in-law Jack, sister-in-law Chris, nephews and family Jay Linds, Ellie, Jenna, Steve, Julie Maita, Gunner, Anna and his cousins Maureen and Ted. He will be missed by his cat Samantha.
Many friends will remember his phone calls to have a “little” chat and how he loved to keep in touch. He worked at C.N. for 35 years and kept in touch with many acquaintances. Those of you who knew Glenn from C.N. would have noticed how tidy his work desk was. If you use it, put it back where it belongs, so I can find it again. I’m sure a few of you messed with him.
Years ago we were bringing a potato salad to the annual Hootenanny at his cousin Maureen’s. When I set it down she said “Oh, Glenn must have made this” as all the potatoes were cut up the same size. We still laugh at this every year.
Our family would like to thank everyone for their emails, Facebook messages and phone calls, it’s overwhelming.
Thank you to Scarborough Fire, E.M.S. and Scarborough General for all their effort.
Kindly support your favorite charity or Sick Children’s Hospital. No funeral or visitation will be held as per Glenn’s wishes.
