"Happy Birthday Dad.....

As you had requested,

We had a little party in your honor,

Friends and family came from near and far,

Your great grand daughter even made a cameo appearance,

We shared a few drinks and a few more good stories,

We toasted the memory of our dear uncle Art,

We laughed and cried and all shouted in pride,

What a fine man was he, What a fine man was he,"

"Dear Dad.....

Father's Day was always a special day for me,
As a child, I enjoyed the opportunity to show you how I felt,
As a man, I was proud to be a father and share the day with you,
Today, I have mixed feelings,
I'm very lucky and thankful to have such great kids,
But somehow it's not the same emotion,
I miss you and I wish you were here to share the day,
Thanks for showing us how important it is to be a good father,

Happy Father's Day"

"I first met Glenn through the Pembroke Outdoor Sportsman Club and we quickly became friends.  He was so open and friendly and was very highly respected within the group.  We spent many days together on the River in his boat doing a walleye study and we served together on many committees at the club.  Glenn was the complete gentleman.  When he lived in Petawawa I often ran into he and Charlotte at Danny's or at my work.  My condolences to Charlotte and the family, I will miss Glenn."

"We will always remember our great brother in law. A guy that always made you feel welcomed with his great hospitality and warmth. May he Rest In Peace."

This tribute was added by Jon Douglas on 13th April 2017

"From early in my childhood, I enjoyed Uncle Glenn's warm and jovial personality, and I admired his many talents and achievements in sports, outdoor life and business. Most of all, I now treasure the memories of his adventures with my father Blair, from the time they were kids shooting rats in their backyard from the dining room window, to when as distinguished older gentlemen the Douglas brothers would set off together each fall on wilderness treks in search of the elusive deer. During the most recent visit that Dad and I made to Pembroke earlier this year, Glenn still had that spark in his eye, that wry smile and his wonderful sense of humour in spite of his failing health. I will remember him with admiration and love for the rest of my days."
