Obituary of Glenn Herbert Larmer
It is with sadness that our family announces the passing of Glenn Herbert Larmer after a long battle with Alzheimer's disease. Son of the late Ernest and Edna Larmer. Beloved husband for 62 years of Marion (nee MacDougald). He will be forever missed by his sons Doug (Joyce) and Craig (Margo); his grandchildren Jessica (Dan Turner), James (Alison), Jordan (Laurie Oleskiw), Clay and Troy; and his great grandchildren Emmett, Ayda and Isla. Survived by his sisters Lois Yellowlees and Beryl Strang, and sister-in-law Noreen MacDougald.
He will be held dear in the hearts of family and friends. He was born in Blackstock and proudly lived his entire life there. He was a participant in community events and a devoted volunteer. He was an active member of his church, including lending his beautiful bass voice to the church choir. Through the years, he was a member of other local choirs, including the Port Perry Choral Society. For 22 years, he farmed in partnership with his brother Ralph, followed by 30 years with his son Craig. Glenn was a kind and honest man. His loyalty, sense of humour, and love of music will be missed.
