Glendon Clarence (Glen) Habart
October 23, 1933 ~ December 20, 2012
After a full life, Glen passed away peacefully at the Peter Lougheed Santuari Hospice in Calgary, AB on Thursday, December 20, 2012 at the age of 79 years.
Glen was born in Blaeberry, BC. Glen and Eloise enjoyed many camping trips with their children and grandchildren at Kootenay Lake; teaching them how to water ski and fish. They also embraced the opportunity to travel to Mexico, Arizona, Alaska and Cuba. Glen was an avid outdoorsman who enjoyed hunting and fishing. He loved the trees and the mountains where he could breathe the fresh air of the forest. Glen was an excellent gardener and was always willing to share his vegetables with whoever happened to come by. Most of his working days were spent in the ‘woods’ as he liked to say, where he was a foreman for Crestbrook Forest Industries for many years. Glen had many good friends and a great sense of humour. He always had a story or two to tell which was how he earned the nickname “camp tramp!”
Glen was predeceased by his parents and his brother Lorne Habart.
He leaves Eloise, his beloved wife of 58 years; his son Robin (Cheryl); daughters Lynn (Blaine) and Janna (Lester); five grandchildren, Joshua (Melanie), Jeremy, Breanne (Matthew), Carly (Jason), and Daniel; five great-grandchildren; brother Brian; sisters Emily, Lorraine (Jerry), and Bonnie (Warren); and several nieces and nephews.
We would like to thank the wonderful hospital staff at the Foothills Hospital, Pulmonary Care Unit and the Peter Lougheed Santuari Hospice in Calgary, for their outstanding care and support of our dad. A big thank you to all our friends and family for their support in this most difficult time.
At his request, there will be no service.
Glen will be forever in our hearts and missed tremendously by everyone.
