Obituary
Glen Kenneth Bond
Peacefully on July 13, 2021, Glen Bond of Edmonton, Alberta, passed away after a short battle with cancer, with his family by his side.
He was predeceased by his wife, Pat; parents Bert and Lillian; and his two sisters Pat and Bev. Glen will be lovingly remembered by his son Derek (Michelle); daughter Glenda (Shawn); granddaughter Sara; brother George (Marg); his nieces, nephews, extended family members and many friends.
He was born in Winnipeg, MB on August 9, 1940, to Bert and Lillian Bond. The family moved to Grosse Isle, MB in 1947 where Glen and his siblings learned about country and farm life. He attended Grosse Isle School where he made many lifetime friends and memories. At the age of 19, he moved to Ottawa for meteorology school. Glen met his wife at a baseball game in Selkirk in 1965 and they were married on June 4, 1966.
A Meteorologist with Environment Canada for 36 years, Glen has been stationed to many weather offices throughout Northern Ontario, Manitoba, Resolute Bay, and Saskatoon, where he would provide weather briefings for pilots and local communities. Most notably, Thompson, MB from 1975 to 1986 where he was very involved in many activities and many sports, and always cheering on all the kids (curling, softball, hockey, to name a few). In 1986, he was transferred to Saskatoon, where he would retire in 1995. With his retirement, Glen kept busy with helping his family and volunteering most notably with the Saskatchewan Railway museum Saskatoon, SK and the Edmonton Icelandic Canadian club of Edmonton (ICCE).
An avid railway enthusiast and aircraft fan, Glen enjoyed visiting museums and exhibits. His favorite pastime was watching the steam powered Prairie Dog Central railway running from Inkster, MB to Grosse Isle, MB. He passed his passions for these onto his children and granddaughter.
