It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Glen E. Linton of Drayton Valley on the afternoon of Friday, December 6, 2019 at the age of 74 years.
Glen was a man of great integrity, honesty and humility. He could sometimes be a man of few words as he believed his actions spoke clearly. However, Glen was never one to turn down a chance to socialize, dance or listen to good music with friends and family. Glen was very involved in his communities and spent a lot of his time coaching. His abundance of care would help change many young lives and mould them into the people they have become. A lover of all sports, baseball, curling and golf were among his favorites. He also had a great fondness for animals, gardening, and specifically his family.
Glen will be lovingly remembered by his wife, Joyce (neé Ball); children, Scott (Beatriz) Linton, Denise (Gerald) Perry and Jackie Linton; grandchildren, Ethan Perry and Matthew Perry, Laura (Ciro) Puentes and David Linton; great-grandchildren, Gabrielle and Jazlyn Puentes; siblings, Shirley Andrews, Gloria Kesslering and Garnet (Vicki) Linton and his true companions, Gracie and Kooper, as well as by several extended family and life-long friends.
Glen is predeceased by his parents, Glen and Vesta Linton; brothers, Harvey and Elroy Linton and sisters, Glenda McLeod and Gail Nister.
