Obituary

Glenn Snook, a man of great stature, completed his journey on earth October 26, 2019. He was born in Cataraqui June 25, 1931, the only child of Harold and Laura Snook. His early years were spent alongside his parents as they ran a gas station and food concession. When his mother was busy, babysitting was riding the big trucks hauling wood with his dad and the men. At age seven they moved to work the Lindsay family farm north of Sydenham. He attended Rosedale school and began his driving career at age 14 taking the farmers milk to the dairy in Sydenham before walking up the hill to Sydenham High School. It was there he met his sweetheart, Clara, beginning a romance of 73 years. They married July 26, 1952 “between the hay and the grain”. They began life together in the Lindsay farmhouse, caring for the grandparents until they died and lovingly raising their girls. Glenn enjoyed working with his dad on the farm but times were hard and in 1969 they sold the cows and Glenn spent long evening hours obtaining his Assessment (AIMA) and Appraisal (AACI) diplomas to become a municipal assessor followed by a seventeen year appraisal career at Revenue Canada. Retirement in 1987 was followed by seven years as a certified instructor with the Ontario Real Estate Board. Glenn and Clara loved to travel and their retirement years saw them traversing Canada, USA, and Mexico in their motor home as well as excursions to much of Europe, China and Israel.

Glenn lived a life of service in his community (school board trustee, fire warden, L&A Mutual Insurance Board of Directors) and the Free Methodist church where he willingly filled leadership positions at the local and national level as well as lent his many skills to any task that needed doing and gladly worked until the job was done. His pick-up was always available. He was a kind and supportive dad to his girls and a loving mentor and grandpa to his five grandchildren. He loved little ones and was thrilled when three great grandchildren came along.

His beloved Clara died April 12th of this year. He will be so missed by his daughters Susan (Brian) Powley, Nancy (Peter) Timan, grandchildren Sarah (Darryl) Kingdon, Andrew Powley, Jesse Powley, David Timan, Anneke (Jeremy) Gretton and great grandchildren Hanna and Jack Kingdon and Clara Joy Gretton. He was an admired uncle of the Henderson cousins: Anne, Michael, Mary-Alice, Anthony and their families and a faithful friend, confidant and mentor to so many.

The family invites you to join them at Harrowsmith Free Methodist Church, 3876 Harrowsmith Road on Friday, November 1st from 2 - 4 and 7 - 9 pm and the funeral on Saturday November 2nd at 11 am.

In honour of his lifelong generosity, donations can be made to the Harrowsmith Free Methodist Church, Kingston University Hospital Foundation or to a charity of your choice.
