It is with a heavy heart that I post the passing of my one and only brother, Glenn.
Glenn was born on September 26, 1956, first born of Peter and Joyce Coulson. He was followed by four sisters, Darlene, Laverne, Sheila and Sheryl. He graduated from the University of Manitoba Faculty of Agriculture with a degree in Plant Science in 1978. He worked in the food industry for most of his career. He is pre-deceased by his parents and his sister Laverne.
He is survived by his wife Pat and his sons Justin, and his wife Erin, and Alexander.
Glenn was always quick to a smile and known for his quirky sense of humor. If Glenn was around you could be assured of a good ribbing and lots of laughs. Glenn was never in a hurry and always had time to chat – with everybody, especially total strangers. If he phoned, you might as well pour a cup of tea and pull up a chair, you would be there for a while.
Glenn also loved music and was an avid collector of vinyl records. Maybe not so much as a collector as a keeper – most of his extensive collection was from his youth, when vinyl records where what we listened to. I have fond memories of his teenage years listening to his Jesus Christ Super Star album. He was a volunteer radio host with Saskatoon Community Radio CFCR90.5 FM. From 2008 to 2013 he hosted Wednesday night So Many Roads and from 2013 to 2018 he hosted Monday night Rollin & Tumblin with the Blues. He was also a volunteer with the Saskatoon Blues Society.
The greatest joys in Glenn’s life were is wife Pat (aka, “my lovely bride”), his boys Justin and Alexander, and his dogs Emily (deceased) and She-Ra. Relaxation to Glenn was a long slow mosey through a nature preserve with his trusty dog at his side. He loved to work with wood and built many unusual features for their backyard. If Glenn built something, you could be sure it would last forever.
And my last picture is from my last visit with Glenn in October 2019.
I will miss you big brother.
