A. Glen ADES

ADES, A. Glen April 13, 1927 - March 3, 2014 Glen was predeceased by his beloved wife Marie, and is lovingly remembered by his daughters, Sherry, Liane (Nigel) and Bonnie (Don), grandchildren Jennifer, Mark, Natahna and Clayton. Born in Strasbourg, SK, he moved west early on to spend a unique childhood in family float logging camps in the wilderness along BC's coastal waters, becoming an accomplished seaman. He served in the RCNVR in WWII, a survivor of Juno Beach. His country and his family owe him much. Lest We Forget and to Remember is to work for Peace. Glen was an expert licensed Heavy Duty Equipment Mechanic, whose work took him throughout the province, first as an Instructor and then as a Manager in government, including the Ministry of Highways. He was proud to be instrumental in establishing BC's Apprenticeship Training Program. The ultimate family man who enjoyed boating on the "Escapades", camping and RVing, Dad's fervently independent nature, his resolve to provide for others and his abiding sense of humour, kindness and generosity in always lending a hand, endeared him to all. There wasn't a vehicle he couldn't fix! He and that ever-present twinkle in his eye, will be forever missed. Safe harbours, Dad. Private family memorial.
