Glen died peacefully at Gillis House on Friday, November 1 from the complications of Parkinson’s disease. He is survived by his wife Margaret, his sister Dorothy Hemmingsen of Port Alberni, niece Tracy Carlson of Calgary, nephews Clay Carlson (Linda) of Campbell River, Leslie Hemmingsen (Cynthia) of Grande Prairie, Randy Hemmingsen (Helena) of Red Deer, Larry Hemmingsen (Sandra) of Port Alberni and Bruce Hemmingsen of Red Deer. There are numerous grand and great nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents Carl and Mary (nee Miller) Carlson and his brother Donald.

Glen was born in Vancouver and grew up in Port Alberni. Upon graduation from high school he went on to the University of British Columbia where he obtained a BA in 1955 and MD in 1960. He arrived in Merritt in January, 1964 and practiced for four months at the old hospital on Priest Avenue until the new hospital opened in April. He truly enjoyed his practice particularly the challenges that came with each new day. Away from his practise he enjoyed his books and was a keen hiker, canoeist and back packer. He retired form the practise of medicine in 1995. A Celebration of Life will be held next spring.

Many, many thanks to the staff at Gillis for their care, kindness and compassion. Donations in Glen’s memory may be made to the Union Gospel Mission, 601 East Hastings Street, Vancouver, BC, V6A 1J7.
