GLEN KENT HEWITT
During his life, Glen travelled life's halls meeting its obstacles with resolve and conviction. His goal in life was to make this world a better place. He often lacked the tools to combat life's adversities but, in his own way, he persevered and prevailed. He observed, he learned, and he concluded that the world could be a better place.
After he graduated from high school, Glen joined the Navy. Upon his discharge, he worked as a postal employee and then, in 1974, he began a long career with the City of Winnipeg's Waterworks Department. He retired from that job in 2008. Glen then volunteered at the Victoria General Hospital. He loved working as a volunteer at the "Vic" and, in return, he was loved.
One of Glen's most enjoyable experiences was when he served as the President of the Riel Community's Resident Advisors Group. He did that for many years, interacting with City of Winnipeg Councillors and area residents.
Glen was always pleasant. You couldn't leave his presence without a good laugh and a smile on your face. He wanted to make a difference and he did. How many people can say that?
Goodbye my friend.
Enjoy your journey and have a safe trip.
For those who so desire, a donation in Glen's name can be made to The Guild of the Victoria General Hospital or to a charity of your choice.

I worked with Glen for a couple of years on Plinquet. He always had visitors in his office as he was such a great story teller. I enjoyed knowing you - you will be missed! - Joy Denyer - Posted by: Joy Denyer (Co-worker) on: May 07, 2019

Glen had a big heart. He wanted to appear to gruff but he was the kindest man. He supported many community functions but I think he was most proud of providing books to the Children's Hospital. - Posted by: Dan Wiwchar (Vo-worker) on: May 05, 2019
Oh dear Glen (aka Grandpa) you will be missed. I was so thankful to meet you and work with you at 552 Plinguet. Your keen wit and kindness was there every day. It was my pleasure. Faye Schmidt - Posted by: Faye (Co-worker) on: May 04, 2019
