CAMPBELL-With deep sorrow, we announce the death of Glen Miller Campbell on February 1st, 2005 in Regina. Born on September 23, 1916 in Avonlea, SK, he was the third of seven children born to Sandy and Eva Campbell. He grew up on the family farm and attended Sunshine School. Glen was a natural athlete throughout his entire life, playing ball, rugby, hockey, curling, golf, shuffleboard and tennis. After Grade 12, Glen went to the University of Saskatchewan obtaining his Accounting Degree and Chartered Accountant's Designation in 1942. With the outbreak of World War II, Glen navigated RCAF bombers stationed in York, England and Aberdeen, Scotland. He met his sweetie, Fern Hagerty, farm daughter and Registered Nurse on the ice skating rink in Moose Jaw. They married in April 1946. Shortly after, Glen and his brothers led a team of 21 young men who custom combined wheat harvests from Texas to the Dakotas. In the spring of 1947 Glen attended his first of six Canadian Curling Championships, winning the MacDonald Brier in 1955 with brothers Garnet, Lloyd and Don. Over the years, his other curling mates were father Sandy, brother Gordon, Jack Keys and Bob Pickering. Glen was a 25-year Registered Seed Grower in the Pense district from 1950-1995 and a Founding Director of the Palliser Wheat Growers Assocation. He and Fern moved permanently to Regina in 1975 and started wintering in Texas. Glen lost Fern in 1985. He was blessed to have two special women in his life when he met Elsie Teulon. They continued to winter in Texas together, collecting many shuffleboard and golf trophies. He continued ""balancing the books"" for his relatives until his 88th birthday. Glen was predeceased by wife Fern, parents Sandy and Eva, brother Don, sister Verna and her husband Bill Evans, and Lloyd's wife, Wilma Campbell. Poppa will be sorely missed by children Doug (Irene) Campbell, Cochrane, AB; Glenys (Rand) McIntyre, Regina; James Campbell (Steve Stellenwerf), Houston, TX; and his loving companion Elsie Teulon; brothers Lloyd, Pense, Garnet (Deverne) and Gordon, Avonlea; sister Margaret (Archie) Smith, Boulder, CO; sister-in-law Grace Campbell, Toronto; and brotherand sisterin-law Ray and Anna Hagerty, Moose Jaw, as well as numerous nieces and nephews; Grandchildren Keith, Ross and Jennifer Campbell, Lindsay and Brandon McIntyre. Heartfelt thanks go out to Dr. Abdulhadi, Dr. Gorman, Dr. Bradel, Dr. Clein, staff of the Renal and CRI Unit, Palliative Home Care and William Booth Palliative Wing Staff.
