GLENWOOD VICTOR ENNIS
1920 – 2003
It is with great sadness that the family of Glen Ennis announces his death at the MSA Hospital on November 5, 2003.
He is survived by his loving wife of sixty years, Betty, his sons Roger (Dianne), their children Kathy, Stacey and Steven, and Gerry (Sandy) and their children Jason, Clayton (Suzanne) and Tyler. He is also survived by two sisters, Ethel, Joyce (Gerry), and a brother Al (Terry). He was predeceased by his brother Verne and sister-in-law Mabel.
Glen was born and raised in Grenfell, SK, where he went to school and worked on various farms. When war broke out he joined the RCAF in 1940 and was posted to St. Thomas, Ontario for basic training, and then to No.10 SFTS, Dauphin, MB as an aero engine mechanic where he met Betty (Heywood) who was also in the RCAF as a nursing assistant. During the closing days of the war he was posted to Sea Island Airfield, with a short time spent at Boundary Bay Airfield. Upon discharge from the RCAF in 1945, Glen and Betty settled on five acres on Columbia Road. He was employed as an electrician at the Clayburn brick plant at both Kilgard and Abbotsford where he remained until his retirement in 1981.
During his retirement years he led a full and active life, camping, fishing, walking and taking several trips to Arizona in the winter months. Glen enjoyed all sports, especially fishing which he enjoyed until a few weeks prior to his death. He shared his passion for fishing with his sons and grandsons especially during sockeye and coho season.
Glen was remembered at an open house filled with his family and friends, and neighbours on Saturday, November 8. The family would like to thank Dr. Collingridge, and especially the nurses and and staff on the telemetry ward at the MSA Hospital for their kindness during Glen’s illness.
