Glen E. Attree

December 22, 1949September 12, 2011

It is with great sadness and regret that Sharon, Jennifer (Bryan), and Bryan (Gertruida) now announce the passing on September 12, 2011, of their loving husband and father – GLEN EDWARD ATTREE. Always bringing pride and a smile to Glen are grandsons Lynden and Sawyer, nephew Shane (Sheila) and great-nephew Donald who has been a great helper and support to Sharon. Loving us, holding us, being there always, and guiding us on this most difficult journey – ELAINE and DON, cherished family MOLLY & LOUISE. There are no words to express our blessing in having your love and caring. Thank you to our neighbors for wrapping your arms around us, caring, silently doing without asking, a quick call, a silent hug, just knowing you will “be there”. In lieu of flowers please make donations to HOSPICE HOUSE. May we all have the benefit that Glen has had from this wonderful home. Nurses that are gifted with skill, compassion, and care for our entire family. It can not be expressed enough how much we appreciated you. Thank you also to Dr. Jan McIntosh who not only extended medical care but “cared”. Glen’s request to quietly leave us without a funeral can be honored by spending that time loving the life and laughter of family and friends. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting Arrangements in care of First Memorial Funeral Services, (250) 762-2299.

Dearest Sharon, Bryan and Jennifer...
It's hard to loose someone you love. You feel like you will never be the same, and although you may not, take solice in the knowledge that time heals all wounds. Remember all the great memories you shared and know that he will live on inside your heart forever. I will miss Glen's quick, dry sense of humour, our "shop-talk" at the start of every visit, all the "Catch Phrase" wins. Most of all we will miss our kind, generous friend. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you during this difficult time. Sending you much love and healing energy. Krista, Stephanie and Clark.

Dear Sharon & Family: I was saddened and shocked to read of Glen's death. Glen and I often referred clients to each other. I admire him a great deal for his professionalism and strict ethical approach to his profession. He was a smart man. I am sorry that he was taken from you so early when you should have been enjoying your retirement years together and offer my sincere condolences.
