Obituary of Brian Earl Glenn
With heavy hearts and immense sadness, the family of Brian Earl Glenn announces his sudden passing at the Saint John Regional Hospital in the early hours of May 9th, 2020. Brian left this world, at the age of 73, with the love of his life, Ruth (Taylor) Glenn by his side. Words can not express the love that Brian had for his family; and this love was returned in equal measure. Born in Minto, N.B., on April 5, 1947, Brian was the son of the late Earl and Patricia Glenn, brother to Gary (Beverley), Mark (Myrna), Brenda (Orland) and Gayle (predeceased). Brian lived a full life, loved his friends and family deeply and knew the value of a hard day’s work. Never shy to offer a helping hand, for much of the past few decades, Brian has worked hard to bring prosperity back to a region of the province that has been hit hard. He firmly believed that a strong rural NB makes for a stronger province. Brian will be forever missed by his loving wife Ruth and his five children Lori (Andrew Fisher) of Rothesay, Jason (Lindsay Glenn) of Douglas Harbour, Traci (Clint Simmons) of Fredericton, Rachel (Todd MacFarlane) of Durham Bridge and Suellen (Nathan Stickles) of Fredericton. As anyone could attest, Brian considered his children his greatest accomplishment; his daughters, the apple of his eye and his son, a faithful companion. Brian’s greatest joy in recent years was found in making memories with his 13 cherished grandchildren; Luke, Lauren, Samuel, Emily, Kristen, Noah, Ella, Abigail, Gillian, Gavin, Garrett, Glenn and Gordon. Many memories were made on the shores of Sunnyside Beach on Grand Lake, and in Salmon River for the annual Thanksgiving Scavenger Hunt. Brian’s legacy of family first will surely live on in the generations to come. He held a special place in his heart for Ruth’s three sisters; Lois Vincent, Jeananne Knox and Ava Coakley, and many nieces and nephews. For those who wish, donations made to the Brian Glenn Memorial Bursary would be appreciated by the family. A celebration of Brian’s life will be held at a later date.
