NUMBERS, James Glen, Maj (Ret’d), CD, RCLS

NumbersOn Wednesday, July 19th, Glen (James Glen), age 82, passed peacefully with his wife, Diane (nee Warner), of 60 years, son Jim and daughter Elizabeth at his side.
Glen served in the Canadian Armed forces for 35 years, entering at age 16 into the Soldier Apprenticeship program at Base Borden, also the location of his last posting in Canada. He enjoyed postings in Germany and later the Middle East.
Glen and Diane were fortunate to have several years traveling to Arizona in the winter and spending the balance of the year at the home they built in Haliburton. They later re-located to Brighton and in late 2021 to Wasaga Beach, where they first met in 1962.
Glen enjoyed a variety of hobbies over the years, including water skiing in the summer, snowmobiling in the winter, training dogs in obedience and building the family cottage. He was always willing to help others out and even spent a few years doing dog therapy work in long term care facilities with Abba (Doberman) and then Dolly (Springer Spaniel).
Following Glen’s wishes cremation has taken place and no formal services will be held. As an expression of sympathy donations in Glen’s memory may be made to Hospice Georgian Triangle – Campbell House. Friends may visit Glen’s online Book of Memories at
From Gary McDermott, Maj (Ret’)
So sorry to hear of Glen’s passing. We were brothers in the Canadian Forces Logistics community and were “fellow truckers”. Our condolences to Glen’s family. My favourite memory of Glen was when we attended the Joint Services Movement’s Officers Course in Aldershot, UK. He had a great sense of humour seasoned with the occasional spicy vocabulary. Glen was a respected member if the military community and will be missed by all who were fortunate to have known him. Rest in Peace good buddy.
