January 21, 1951 – February 27, 2021
In Memory of Glen Allan Spooner ~ Predeceased by his father Frederick in 2009 and his brother Garry in 2017, Glen is survived by his mother Caroline, sisters Beverley (Pat) Tobler, Terilyn Spooner, and Stacey (Dave) Bingham, many nieces and nephews, his fur buddy Benji and lifelong friends Rob and Brenda Angus and Derek Stratton.
Glen was born in Flin Flon, Manitoba to Fred and Caroline Spooner on a cold snowy day in January 1951. In 1953 the family moved to Calgary, Alberta where Glen would reside for most of his adult life before moving to Penticton in 1996 to be closer to his parents.
Glen worked as a warehouseman for Woolco and then for Wal-Mart for the majority of his working life. He was an avid sports fan, especially hockey and curling sitting alongside his Mom cheering on their favorite teams. He also organized curling and bowling leagues for family and friends to socialize for several years in Calgary.
Glen was an avid collector of almost anything, his most cherished items being hockey memorabilia, coins and of course Rolling Stones memorabilia. He was by far their number one fan having attended several concerts, owning all of their vinyl and singing by heart all the lyrics, especially to his favorite song, “I can’t get no satisfaction.”
Glen loved to spend time with family, friends and his boy Benji. Most days they could be found walking the paths at Skaha Lake Park. Glen was also a caregiver to our mother over the past few years, more an act of love than a task for him. He is loved and will always be remembered.
“That we once enjoyed and deeply loved we can never lose for all that we love deeply becomes part of us.” – Helen Keller
