GRICE, Glenn Harold May 27, 1939 - December 19, 2010 Glenn passed peacefully after a long, dignified battle with Parkinson's Disease on Sunday, December 19, 2010. Glen was born in Viking, Alberta on May 27, 1939 as an only child to father Harold and mother Viola Grice. Raised on a farm near Strathmore, Alberta, Glenn moved into the big city of Calgary in the mid 1950s where he attended Mount Royal College, was a drummer in a local band and became one of the charter members of Calgary's Petroleum Ski Club. Glenn was one of the first camera men at CFCN, where he remained a loyal employee for thirty- seven years, retiring as the General Sales Manager. Glenn had a love for ski racing, golf, the mountains and of course his family. He is survived by his devoted wife, Sally Grice, and his eternally grateful daughters, Shara and Lindsay. He will be remembered fondly by many, but in particular by Heather and Dave Renton (stepchildren), Jackie Roberts and his ""Panorama Family"".
