Glen grew up on Carmen Avenue in Elmwood and developed an interest in radios and TVs. He worked for Snowdens and Eatons before starting his business of 50 years, Blair TV.
Glen and Dorothy travelled the world and loved curling, golf and gatherings of friends and family. Glen had a quick wit and a wonderful sense of humour. He loved telling stories and each story got better every time it was told. Always smiling, he was a man who truly had a wonderful life.
The family wishes to thank W.R.H.A. palliative home care, Bladder Cancer support group and the wonderful staff of St. Boniface Hospital Palliative Care ward. Donations may be made to Bladder Cancer Canada or the charity of your choice. No flowers please.

Nothing but great things to say about Glen. He was a fantastic neighbour. As I grew up and went through childhood I always remember Glen keeping busy in the garage or working on some projects around the house. He would always smile and say hello to anyone from my family as we would often walk past each other between our homes. Sometimes we would spark a conversation and discuss anything from travel to yardwork/reno plans. Other times we would discuss the beautiful weather during the summer season. We are saddened to hear this news but are happy to have met and known Glen Blair. He was a great man. May you rest in peace. M.G. - Posted by: Marko Gajic (Neighbour) on: Mar 15, 2020

My condolences to the Blair family. I am an old school mate/neighbor of Candace's. It is very hard to say good bye to a parent, They have been with you your whole life, and suddenly they are gone leaving a void in your heart that nothing can fill. Take comfort in knowing they are no longer in any pain and will never be truly gone as long as they are in your memories and heart. - Posted by: Dan Wark (Neighbor) on: Mar 14, 2020
