We Remember


December 2, 1955 — March 13, 2023

Update: Following a small private Graveside Service, a reception to honour Glenn will be held on THURSDAY, MARCH 23, 2023, at 12:30 pm, at the KELOWNA GOLF AND COUNTRY CLUB (1297 Glenmore Dr, Kelowna, BC).  

It is with deep sorrow and much love that we announce the passing of Glenn Rousseau, of Kelowna, BC, on March 13, 2023, at the age of 67.

Glenn was born on December 2, 1955 in Montreal, Quebec, to Alice & Andre Rousseau. He spent his first 30+ years in Montreal with his parents, brothers, and sister, experiencing everything Montreal had to offer.

In 1992, he married the love of his life Barbara and moved to Vancouver, BC, a place he had always wanted to visit as a young boy. They spent 5 years living in Vancouver and welcomed their most cherished son, Liam, in 1995 who was the light of Glenn’s life. He was a proud dad, and they had many adventures together, going to football games, hockey games, concerts, and hanging out watching Dumb & Dumber way too many times. In 1997, the family packed up and moved to the Okanagan Valley to be closer to his sister, Dayle, and nephews, Ryan & Jeremy, finally settling in Kelowna, BC. He made many close lifelong friends that always treated him like family. Along the way there were stops in Arnprior, Ontario; Los Angeles, California; and most recently Wenatchee, Washington.

Glenn was an adventurer at heart and was always game to try new things and experiences. He had an unquenchable thirst for knowledge and always knew something about every subject; he was happy to share that knowledge with whomever was willing to listen. He was never afraid to move to a new city, start a new job, or go on to the next adventure.

Glenn was a devoted husband, father, son, brother, uncle, and friend. He treasured the time he spent with his family and friends and embraced every moment with them.

Glenn will be lovingly remembered and forever cherished by his wife Barbara; son Liam (Nicole); mother Alice; brother Brian (Deb); and sister Dayle (Fritz); plus many nephews and nieces; as well as numerous family members, friends, and colleagues. Glenn was predeceased by his father, Andre.

Glenn’s positive spirit, love of his family and close friends was an inspiration to many. Our world will never be the same without him in it.
