Glenn Leroy Green
We will greatly miss Glenn Leroy Green. He went to his creator peacefully, in his sleep, on February 6th, 2014 in Lumby, B. C.
Glenn was born December 18th, 1933 in New Westminster, B.C. He spent his youth in White Rock, B. C., where upon his graduating from Grade 13, he joined the Bank of Montreal and retired after 40 years of service. Glenn liked to joke that he started from the ground up. He actually did janitor work evenings at the Bank after school. In those days, you moved to get promoted and move he did – all the way to Dawson City, Yukon, Kitimat, Vancouver, Kimberly, Ashcroft, Port Alberni, Merritt, Trail, Kelowna, Summerland, Fort St. John, and Smithers where he retired from the bank. His last move was to Lumby.
Glenn enjoyed life. He played basketball and even refereed a Harlem Globe Trotters game. That was something! He golfed (had a hole-in-one), played soccer, baseball, curled, fished, square danced, scuba dived, hiked, swam, bowled a 445 game in competition, and was on a ski patrol and citizens’ patrol. He also loved to cook and barbeque. Glenn received service and recognition awards in a wide variety of volunteer groups such as Kiwanis, Rotary (a long time member since 1970, receiving 7 Paul Harris awards.), and the Gleaners, to mention a few.
Glenn had a favorite place called “The Cabin”; a quiet place where friends and family would meet and enjoy each other’s company. He accomplished much in his life but his focus was his family and family values. Through all the ups and downs of life, he remained humble, a true friend, and most of all, a supportive and loving husband father, grandfather and great-grandfather.
He will be loved and cherished and never forgotten by his loving family, dear friends, and colleagues.
