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"". Funeral Services will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY'S Park Memorial Chapel (5008 Elbow Drive S.W.) on Tuesday, December 28, 2010 at 2:30 p.m. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com .

Sally, Shara +Lindsay, we spent many golf games and have lots of great memories with Glenn at Panorama. He was such a huge part of the social network and ski racing there and he has left a legacy with the support for the sport the hill has maintained. We hope that all of the wonderful memories of the good times will warm your hearts and give you a reason to smile and sustain you in your loss. Mar lie + Steve Burtt

Glenn was my boss at CFCN. He was truly one of my favorite people. He was always a real "down to earth" guy who treated me fairly and with respect. I didn't ski with Glenn but we had music in common and often chatted about past experiences and reminisced of the old days.

My sympathies go out to the Grice family,

Dear Grice Family,
We are sorry to hear about Glenn's passing. We feel fortunate to have known him. He was a gentle and caring man. We enjoyed our times at the 'Grice Paddy' with our children, Susan and Craig. Craig also remembers the dinners at your home in Springbank. We are visiting him and his family in St. John's NL and will be unable to attend Glenn's service. Our thoughts are with you at this difficult time.
Warm regards, Jill and Don Bateman

To the Grice Famiy
Very sorry to hear about your loss.
Glenn was so much fun to be around. We had such a great time skiing every weekend and travelling to Europe with the Petroleum Ski Club.
We especially had wonderful times at the Grice Paddy.
Unfortunately we moved to Toronto and lost touch over the years
We certainly remember the good times.

to.-.-.The Grice Family,
Glenn was a very young boy when he and his parents moved to Lyalta many years ago. I remember Glenn as a "Smiling, Good Kid" way back then.

Sally,

It was while volunteering at Bow View Manor that I recognized Glenn's name on the plaque near his room. We attended school together in Strathmore. I was able to visit him several times in the past few months.

My deepest sympathy goes out to you and your family.

Grice family --
I wish to extend my regrets to the family. Glenn played in a little band with me and the Bazant boys (Phil and Dennis), called the "Sentimentalists", during High School days in Strathmore. Sincerely, Allan Warrack (Edmonton)

Shara and Lindsay and The Grice Family,

It is with a deep, deep sadness that I write this note. My old boss, friend and all 'round great guy has left us. We, and a whole other group of 'media' guys and girls worked together for many years at CFCN-TV. Glenn was our boss. We had some rollicking good times, both at work and at play. Glenn was always in the thick of it - whether on the ski hill, in the office or at a party. I have been away from Calgary for many years - but I have remembered and remember Glenn well and oh, so fondly! I see him, in my minds eye, going down the diamond run at Panorama - he was a great skier. Because of our time at CFCN-TV he is a deep part of my history and he will be missed.

I will keep him framed in my heart and in my memories on the ski hill - alive, laughing and full of great humour.

Deepest sympathy and regards,

Brian Bolli

Dear Shara and Lindsay,

I am so very sorry for your loss. Your Dad was such a wonderful man. I have many fond memories of him while skiing with Team Panorama as a child. I also remember all of the fun times we had at the 'Grice Paddy' and his Margarita's were legendary at the Mexican night! You were lucky to have a Dad like him- he loved you both so much.

My thoughts are with you. Please let me know if there is anything I can do.

With love and hugs,
