Glendon Ralph Cromwell
Passed away on October 1, 2021
CROMWELL, Glendon Ralph, age 78, passed away peacefully surrounded by family on October 1, 2021. Born on March 4, 1943, he was a son of the late Eleanor and Ralph Cromwell of Weymouth, NS. Glennie left Weymouth in the early 60’s to join The Black watch (Royal Highland Regiment) of Canada. In the military, he trained as a boxer. He would eventually travel to the US, New England area, where he lived and worked in the food industry for over 40 years. He returned to Canada and settled in Nova Scotia to enjoy his retirement. Known by many in the area as the “guy who walks everyday”, Glen would not break stride but would throw up a hand to wave as you drove by. Whether riding an ATV or lawn mower, he loved to be outside. He’d say, “I’m goin’ back to the Yukon”. He loved to cook and bake and was the entertainment at any gathering. He would greet you with his customary, “I’m from New Yawk” and “I’m from the bay B’y ” Glendon is survived by his children, Murray Miller (Eva), Theresa Cromwell and Lisa Davis: brothers, Weldon, Rennie (Blondell), Keith (Janet); sister, Sharon (John) Cooper, along with numerous grandchildren, nieces and nephews. He will be sadly missed by his friend and companion, Sandi Graham. Besides his parents, Glendon was predeceased by his sister, Gladys; brothers, Wensel, Merle and Duane. Cremation has taken place under the care of Jayne’s Funeral Home, Digby. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Digby General Hospital. A funeral mass for Glendon will take place at a later date to be announced. Please share a memory or leave a condolence at www.jaynesfuneralhome.com

God saw Glen getting weaker when a cure was not in sight, so, He wrapped His arms around Glen and took him home that night!
May the caring thoughts of those who loved Glen, comfort you at this time of sorrow. Our sincere sympathy.
