Obituary of Glenn Anthony White
It is with great sadness and a heavy heart, that we announce the passing of Glenn White on January 29th, 2024, surrounded by his family at the Northern Lights Regional Health Centre.
For those who have had the honour of crossing paths with Glenn, you will share in our sadness and loss of this great man. He was a dedicated, hardworking family man and employee. He enjoyed the outdoors, whether it was hunting, fishing, or spending time at the cabin, and enjoyed sharing his passion with his two sons. Glenn had a huge heart and was always willing to lend a hand to anyone in need. He was a special man and will be missed by so many people.
Glenn was born in Happy Valley-Goose Bay, Labrador, on December 12, 1973, as the eldest of two sons to Mincie & Patsy White. He worked as a Maintenance Planner at Suncor for the past 4 years, and previously worked at Shell/Canadian National.
Glenn met the love of his life, Susan, in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. They were married in May of 1999, and raised two wonderful sons: Dylan and Devin. They have lived in Labrador, Ontario, and then settled in Fort McMurray, Alberta for the past 14 years.
Glenn leaves behind to mourn his loss, his wife, Susan; sons: Dylan and Devin; parents: Mincie and Patsy White; brother, Joe (Amber); grandmother, Marg Fry; sister-in-law, Deb (Dan); brother-in-law, Chuck (Ashley), and many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins.
