Glenn Joseph Ambrose Nesbitt
Passed on February 6, 2022
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Glenn on February 6, 2022, at the age of 74. Left to mourn his loss is his beloved wife of 53 years, Sharon (Evans), and their daughters, Audra (Dale Hume) and Melissa, as well as his two grandchildren, Alexander, and Grace, who were so remarkably close to him.
Glenn was born on April 16, 1947, in Treherne, MB to Merle and Ambrose Nesbitt, where he grew up with his younger sister Audrey (Hutlet) and his older brother Doug.After completing grade 11 in Treherne, he moved to Winnipeg where he attended Red River College and obtained his Journeyman plumbing ticket. Sharon and Glenn were married on October 19, 1968. His plumbing career took him to many places, including Churchill where he helped build the hospital, Fisher River, and in later years Ontario, Saskatchewan, and Alberta, where he also worked on the pipelines.
In 1974 Glenn and Sharon moved to Cypress River with their young family where they eventually took over the Evans family farm. Glenn continued to work as a plumber while farming. He retired in 2012 and he and Sharon moved to Gunton to be closer to their daughters and grandchildren. Once settled, they helped care for their grandchildren and Glenn worked part-time at the Teulon Co-Op Gas station. He enjoyed meeting and talking with people, getting to know his community. He could talk to anyone about anything! Glenn and Sharon also enjoyed taking day trips, exploring the Interlake. When he was done working at the Co-Op, he enjoyed time with family, including some competitive card games at the kitchen table! Grandpa attended many hockey games, figure skating shows and competitions. Dad was always ready to lend a hand and helped Dale and Audra with many renovations over the years. Melissa was the recipient of his advice and assistance with minor repairs, as well. Glenn, Dad, Grandpa, you will be missed beyond words.
The family would like to thank Dr. Venter for his care over the years, the staff of Stonewall Hospital, Selkirk Regional Health Centre ER, Medicine and Med-Surg units where he was an inpatient over the years, as well as the EMS and RCMP. Thanks to Ken Loehmer of Ken Loehmer Funeral Home Services for his support and guidance.
In lieu of flowers donations can be made to The Lung Association in Winnipeg. To honor Glenn’s wishes, a private family memorial will be held at a later date.
Rest in peace.
Audra and family… so sorry to hear of Glenn’s passing. Enjoyed working with him at Co-op! Good guy!
