Glen passed peacefully on October 26, 2020 at the Sunnybrook Veterans' Centre in Toronto. He passed in his 95th year, with dignity and on his own terms. He is predeceased by his wife Charmion and his son Mark. Glen was a devoted husband, father, and grandfather. He leaves behind daughters Catharine Norton (Mark Norton), Jane Henderson (Felix Klajner) and grandchildren Christopher Norton and Alison Norton.
Glen was born in Napanee and raised on the family farm. At 17, he joined the Royal Canadian Air Force, and subsequently went on to study Horticulture at the Ontario Agricultural College and graduated from the University of Toronto in 1949. He distinguished himself in this field and was instrumental in bringing best agricultural practices from other countries to Ontario. He worked at The Oshawa Group (now Sobeys) until he retired in 1996.
He was past president of the Newmarket Lion's Club and Probus Club. Glen greatly enjoyed golf, curling and fishing. He was a great conversationalist and always a gentleman. He was admired by his friends for his thoughtful reflections on many issues and his wry sense of humour.
He will be greatly missed and fondly remembered by his family and friends. A special thank you is due to the caring staff at Sunnybrook Veterans Centre. Due to current COVID restrictions, a memorial service will take place at a future date to be announced.

I am sad to hear the passing of Glen. He was a great friend to my parents as well as a curling buddy. As a young kid I remember him when my family used to visit the Henderson household and found him to be a kind and generous person.
I extend my condolences to the whole Henderson family for their loss.

Dear Jane & Cathy,
I saw your dad’s obit, a lovely tribute and a very dear photo. Condolences to all the family as you say good-bye to a beloved father and grandfather. Donna & Bill Andersen, Toronto

Here’s my favourite Glen story. It’s from the days when I worked at a fancy Toronto chocolate shop and would bring a box of goodies when visiting your family home. Glen was always first to the welcome me at the door. After a great afternoon and one of your mom’s wonderful meals, Glen would fetch the out-of-sight box and announce: “Look what Donna brought us - a half full box of chocolates” … his smile and personality are forever, may he rest in peace ❤️

So sorry to here of your father's passing. I remember him as a kind gentleman who always had a smile and friendly greeting. Growing up I remember the great friendship our parents had, and later in life, I curled with and against him; always had a great time, because of him, and was privileged to call him friend.
With greatest respect,
Bruce & Aileen Filman

Dear Cathy, Jane and Family,
Our deepest sympathy on your Dad’s passing. We have fond memories of your Dad and our Dad working at Federal Farms. It had been many years since we had seen your Dad but he came to Dad’s funeral in 2015. We then met him again when Mom moved into the Barton in 2016, and always had a word with him when our paths would cross.
