Obituary

It is with profound sadness and heart break that our family announce the sudden passing of Glen Paul Sutherland. He passed peacefully at his home in Peguis, Manitoba at the age of 49, four days away from his 50th birthday.

Glen was born in Winnipeg, Mb to Allen Sutherland and Mary Mann (Nee Nepinak) on April 24, 1972, at Women’s Hospital. They raised their children Allen,

Wendy, Debbie, Marvin, and Glen in the North End of Winnipeg.

Eventually, the children moved to Skownan to be with their Grandparents Gilbert & Hilda. They formed special bonds with their cousins in Skownan. At nine years of age, Glen and his siblings attended the MacKay residential school in Dauphin for a few years. While in school Glen learned to be a hoop dancer and was also in the town choir.

The family eventually made their way back to Winnipeg. As teenagers Glen & Marvin lived with their sister Wendy. This is when they formed big brother bonds with their nieces Candace and Crystal. Glen graduated from Elmwood high school in 1992 and eventually enrolled at the University of Winnipeg for classes. Glen then went on the road with his friend Trevor for one season and became a ‘carnie’ -operating one of the games. In the last year of his sister Debbie’s life, Glen had been staying with her in the Pas. In hindsight, what a special time that was for them to be together.

Glen became a father at the age of 24 to his only child Cassidy Lynn. Cassie remembers when her dad would sing ‘Free Fallin’ by Tom Petty on his guitar.

Glen became a grandfather to Nolan and Lucas. Who he will forever watch over now.

Glen began employment with Tribal Wi-Chi-Way-Win and held a position as a manager. During this time is when he met his partner, Samantha Stevenson. They began to build a life together and eventually bought their first home on Jefferson Ave in Winnipeg. Glen and Samantha were engaged and shared 21 years together. When he became Sam’s full time care giver, he dedicated his time and stood by her. This included driving her to dialysis 3 times a week. Glen also had a special spot for his dog pal ‘Paws Stanley’ a tribute to Paul Stanley from Kiss.

Our Family would like to acknowledge the special bonds he made with his life-long friends. We know you always had a good time together and you’ll always will be apart of our family.

Glen had many talents, one that we all know of was his love for the guitar that his brother Marvin had taught him. Glen’s talent was to sing the songs of all the favorites Blue Rodeo, Tragically Hip, and Oasis only to name a few. He sang his heart out each and every time. Glen played baseball for many years, took up kick boxing, loved golfing with his brothers, and attending Jets and Bomber games with his nestow Craig. Glen always made the trip from Peguis to see his friends and family. Especially his special trips out to Beaver Creek with his brother Marvin to visit his Dad, even after Dad passed, he continued to go out and camp.

One of his special traits was how easily he could talk to anyone and make them feel welcomed. You never heard him complain about anything. He was always at family events with a big smile and full of jokes His favorite things to say were “ONE TIME” and “Uncle swears”. You left unexpectantly but your love and memories will continue to light the way, until our eyes meet again. You will never be forgotten.
