Eldin Henry  Glasby
March 13, 1931 - December 17, 2013
He died peacefully at his home in Spring Bay.
Eldin was born in Mindemoya, son of the late Frederick and Mary Janet Glasby (Cranston).
Eldin farmed at Dryden's corner in Spring Bay for many years. He was an avid outdoorsman, who loved hunting and especially enjoyed ice fishing on Lake Manitou.  He took great pride in his garden and was happy to share the bounty of his labor with others.  Eldin had a special love for dogs, hence his favourite T.V. show was the "Littlest Hobo".
Brother of Alvin (wife Elaine), Marion Elliott (husband Howard), Norma Johns (husband Harold) and Lyle (wife Rosie); all predeceased.
Survived by one brother Harold (wife Shirley predeceased) of Sudbury.
Remembered by his many nieces and nephews.
Eldin will be cremated and a graveside service will take place in the spring.  When the date and time are known they will be posted here.  Donations to Manitoulin Pet Save would be appreciated.

We will always be grateful for the wonderful summers we spent on Manitoulin. The memories of 'haying' with Eldin and then fishing, followed by a wonderful group fish fry, will stay with us and our children forever. We will miss seeing him on our visits to the Island. We loved you very much 'cousin' Eldin.

Donna, John, Daxon, Bill and Rory
