Glenn grew up in Assiginack and left the family farm at the age of 17 to work in Sudbury at Inco as a miner.  It was not long before he met his wife Marilyn of 50 plus years.

They moved to Southern Ontario and he began working for family at a farm dealership, which got him into the trucking business, a career that lasted a lifetime.  

In the 80’s they relocated the family back to Naughton, Ontario.  It was during this time they began to spend more and more time on the island and moved permanently to Manitowaning building a home on the property of the original Moggy homestead.

Glenn was known for his willingness to help those he cared about including his charitable work as the past president and member of the Elks Lodge of Canada. For over 42 years he devoted his time, helping thousands of hearing impaired children and adults.  

When people describe Glenn the first thing that comes to mind is his incredible work ethic, working right till he couldn’t.  His latest project was his beloved bulldog Rodney who provided such joy and comfort.
Glenn had a great sense of humour, a man of few words but when he spoke you listened.  If he liked you, he really liked you.
He will be deeply missed by his family and friends
Donations to Mindemoya Hospital Aux. for the Chemo Project would be appreciated.
