John « Glen » Mahar
It is with broken hearts we announce the passing of Glen
Mahar of Stratford on Wednesday, December 18th following a hard fought
battle with cancer. He was the son of Eva and Pat Mahar of
Glen was our go-to- guy. If we needed anything he was there
for us. His passion for his children and family was immeasurable. He
loved Saturday Night Hoe-Down, cooking (Turkey Dinner), and his family
would say it was his « best ever » and he would give that
« Fred Flintstone grin ».
Glen was a very amazing man who handled this cancer journey
with Grace. The quickness with which this happened was very hard to
understand, but he handled it with great strength. He made it easier
for Barb, his children and our families.
We would sincerely like to thank the following for their care
and compassion with Glen over the past few months. Dr. Peacock,
Sheila, Unit 1 of the QEH, Dr. Head (Oncology), Dr. LeCours, Dr.
Baker, Dr. Rachel, Blanche and all of the wonderful nurses,
maintenance staff, Chef Shawn at the Palliative Care Centre. Special
thanks to Rev. Mark Buell for all of his chats, prayers and laughter
with Glen and family. Sincere gratitude to family , friends from Leons
and golfing buddies for their many visits and treats (hot caramel
sundaes). Glen was a very dedicated friend and
Glen will be dearly missed by his wife and best friend Barb (

Knierzinger. His precious grandchildren, Grampie to Denver Mamye,
