We Remember

DAVENPORT, Glen Cameron

January 1, 1954 — February 10, 2024

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Glen Davenport on February 10th, 2024, in Kelowna, BC, at the age of 70, after his brief battle with cancer.

Glen was born in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan on January 1st, 1954, to parents Rose and Bill Davenport. Glen and his family spent his youth in Saskatoon, until after his graduation from Walter Murray High School, he soon headed out west in 1977 to Kelowna, BC, and never looked back. His career path included work in the produce wholesale business along with a partnership with others at Barney’s Produce, and then onto running fruit stands in the area for his next venture.

Glen had a passion for vintage cars, his favourite being the Ford Mustang, which he enjoyed restoring and cruising top down around the sunny Okanagan. He also took part in motocross racing, did lots of trail riding, and loved to get out on the water to fish. With all the different homes he lived in, he always held open doors for friends and family to come and stay, park in the yard with campers, and enjoy all the fun to be had in the Okanagan.

Kelowna is where he met and married Jacqui, and they were soon blessed with two girls, Alexis and Sierra. They were both the apple of his eye and he loved them dearly. In 2021, he was elated to welcome his first grandson, Mackaye and was proud to say “I’m a Grandpa”.

One of his favourite places to visit was Mexico, particularly Cabo San Lucas. In the early 80s, he and Jacqui drove down the coast with the truck camper to park on the underdeveloped beaches at “km 9”. Years later in ’91 they would return with their two little girls to spend months here in their raised roof van. He always spoke of returning but knew it was now full of hotels; his fond memories of his time spent there were enough.

Glen was predeceased by his parents Rose and Bill. He leaves to mourn his daughters Alexis (Damien) and their son Mackaye, Sierra (Ryan); and their mother Jacqueline. As well as his family; brother Murray (Bonnie); and sisters Pam (Ken), Sharon (Peter), Sandi (Chris), Janice (Bret), Patti (Arley); along with many nieces and nephews. Glen had a number of good friends, whose long-lasting friendships really spoke to his character. His family would like to extend a thank you to his friends who were there for him, day in and out, to lend a hand or just spend time. Know that you held a special place in his heart and made an impact.

The family is picturing Glen driving his beloved Ford Mustang around the Okanagan on a bright, sunny day with Rose and Bill as his co-pilots. Farewell to you Glen, God Bless.  We will miss you.

  • Sandy Lewis (George) says:

    So sad to hear about Glen leaving us. He was one of the nicest guys. He was kind and lots of fun. I hd the pleasure of hanging out with him as a partner in crime and in life for four or five years in the 80’s. He was one of the good guys and will really be missed. RIP buddy.
