With deep sadness we mourn the passing of Glen, husband, father, grandfather, and teacher, Sunday, September 25th at Maple View Home in his 95th year.
He is survived by his wife, friend, focus and love of his life, Cora Cond (nee Sim), children Sandie, Lynn (Judy), Larry (Kerrie); grandchildren, Sara Cond Flower (Brent Helmstaedt), Jen Cond (Andy Paul), Abbey Flower (Jonas Fernandez), Lee (Sara Petruccelli), Gavin (Jen Mezei), Jesse, Joe (Yvonne), Seth (Shannon), Caleb (Michelle), step-grandchildren Michael (Lynaya), and Amanda, and great grandchildren, Ellie, Grant, Riley, Austin, Owen, Georgia, Lucy, Taylor, Justin, Cole, Ty, Blake, Richard, Marc and Macy and two more yet to arrive.
Glen was born on the Manitoulin Island to Joe and Maud Cond on September 29, 1921 and was welcomed by Cecilia and Grenville Sim into their family in 1944.
After serving in the navy, he moved to Sault Ste. Marie in 1948 where he was a devoted teacher at Collegiate Institute until it closed in 1981. He faithfully served his community and Central United Church with caring and concern for all who knew him. His life well-lived was a gift to us all.
Many thanks to the staff on the Goulais Bay wing at Maple View for the care, compassion, and friendship extended to both Glen and Cora.
