Peacefully, on May 4, 2021, Glen Beverly Loewen passed away at the age of 86 years at the Selkirk Regional Health Centre. Glen leaves to mourn his memory, his beloved wife of 61 years, Myrna (nee Goossen), daughter Cheryl Luchka (Brian), son Glen (Kelly), grandchildren Lyndsay (Gabe), Evan (Kristina), Lauren, Karlene (Zachary), Cody and Wyatt, brother Robert (Doreen), sister Jeanette (George) and brother-in-law Rick (Erika). He will also be lovingly remembered by his four great grand-children (Anna, Henry, Lukas, Natalie), extended family and dear friends. Glen was predeceased by his sister Loreen in 2018, daughter Audrey in 2020, and son Bruce in 2000.
Glen was born and raised in Winkler, Manitoba. His father owned and operated a mechanic shop and this is where his passion for fixing and restoring cars emerged. Glen was an active member of the Diamond Car Club and restored many old cars during his retirement. He considered himself an ‘Old Car Nut’. Glen enjoyed playing hockey in his youth and again later with the old-timers. He was also actively golfing and ten-pin bowling as long as his health permitted.
Some of the best years of Glen’s life were spent at his beautiful log home just across from Bird’s Hill Park, lovingly referred to as The Ranch. Glen enjoyed spending time with his family and took great interest in their well-being and goals in life. After retiring from many years of service as the Body Shop Manager at Stadium Ford, Glen and Myrna enjoyed the snowbird lifestyle and made many trips with their fifth wheel trailer to the southern United States. Glen loved nothing more than to socialize and tell stories. He could often be found with a mischievous grin on his face. His feisty spirit and great sense of humour remained until the very end. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him.
The family would like to thank the HSC and CancerCare staff as well as the Selkirk Regional Health Centre staff, especially his angel Rachel, for the exceptional and compassionate care provided to Glen during this difficult time. An informal gathering of friends and family is planned for a time when COVID-19 restrictions allow.
Nos plus sincères sympathies à la famille et aux amis de Glen Loewen Tuesday May 4th 2021..
