We Remember

ENGLISH, Robert “Glen”

September 28, 1951 — March 3, 2024

It is with a great love and deep sorrow that we announce the loss of Robert “Glen” English, who passed away on March 3, 2024, in Kelowna, BC, at the age of 72.

Left to hold him dear in their hearts are his partner of 9 years, Shirley Dueck; daughter, Erin Danielle English; daughter Courtney Newman English; and son Christian Newman and family; as well as sister Donna and brother-in-law Terry Pritchard; and his former wife of 41 years, Deborah English. He now goes to join his parents, Robert V. & Dorothy M. English, who went before him.

Amidst the rain-slicked streets and misty mornings, of Vancouver, BC, Glen was born and raised. Glen, who preferred privacy and a quiet life, filled his world with family and golfing and skiing at Big White. From the Economic Cement Company to Ocean Cement, Glen’s life journey took him through diverse paths of work, until he found a lengthy career as a court registrar at Kelowna Law Courts. Glen kept several close, valued friends in the community, and his unique sense of humour never failed to bring a smile to anyone’s face.

Glen/Dad, you are loved, until we meet again. XO.
