  • Marguerite and family, I just heard of the Gladwyn's passing So sorry to hear the news. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this sad and difficult time. When we was Superintendent of the Interlake School Divsion we had a lot of great conversations. Gladwyn actually called me last spring and we had a great conversation over the telephone and he always asked how everyone was doing. - Posted by: Al Leiman (former co-worker) on: Oct 26, 2022

  • Just heard the news of the passing of my dear friend. Gladwyn was always there for me and the teams that I coached. He was a huge supporter and many times covered them in the press. He had a very distinguished career in sports and education but I knew him as a confidant and am proud to call him my friend. When I first moved to Warren, he took me under his wing and made me and my family feel comfortable and supported. Will miss his phone calls and catching up on the news about his family and life in general. - Posted by: Randy Lasuik (Friend) on: Oct 03, 2022

  • Simply put one of the nicest people I have ever met in my life. I had the pleasure of spending several hours in a car on a drive to Kindersley, Saskatchewan for a tryout for the Canadian National Youth Team. I would tease Gladwynn every time I saw him after that because on the trip he was constantly suggesting we stop for ice cream. Just a beauty of a man...a Hall of Famer in multiple sports but first and foremost a Hall of Fame person. - Posted by: Dean Swanton (Friend) on: Sep 06, 2022

  • So sorry to hear of Gladwyn’s passing- my Dad (Andy Lang) and Gladwyn shared a love of baseball and sports! Gladwyn certainly made a huge impact in many sports in Manitoba and will be missed! Condolences from the “Lang kids” to Marguerite and the entire family. - Posted by: Ruth and Trevor Mealy (Friend) on: Sep 02, 2022

  • I can not begin to express or relate the ways that Gladwyn affected the lives of my family and those that knew him. Unselfish with his time, giving of his knowledge, loyal to his family and friends, and generous with warmth and enthusiasm. Playing hockey and baseball against his son and having a chance to coach his grandkids and be a small guiding force in Josh’s commitment to teaching were personal memories that I have all relating back in no small part to Gladwyn and the Scott/McMillan families. His friendship to my own father in his final days was most gracious and so appreciated. He had these sort of encounters with many and says so much about the man!

  • Saddened to learn of Gladwyn's passing. My condolences to his family. I first met him about 50 years ago when he lived in Souris. I had gone out to represent the Manitoba Softball Association at a junior girls provincial championship that he had organized and was coaching the local team. Throughout the years, we kept in regular contact and his knowledge of Halls of Fame was very helpful when we were forming the Manitoba Softball HOF. Gladwyn truly one of our province's best sports historians and was a go-to guy when I had questions related to my Memories of Sport column. I will miss his phone calls and the envelopes that would show up in my mailbox with notes and clippings of his sports columns. One of his favourite stories was reminding me about the time that he and Frank McKinnon came to The Pas with the Hamiota hockey team and beat the intermediate Huskies twice on a weekend. I was a student in The Pas then and no doubt was at the game, but told Gladwyn that I had absolutely no memory of that happening. I did check the local paper to confirm his version Think he scored three or four goals. RIP old friend. - Posted by: Kent Morgan (Friend) on: Aug 31, 2022

  • Pauline and I offer our most sincere condolences to Marguerite and family on the passing of Gladwyn.

And let us not forget coach to many over the years. Gladwyn, you left a legacy that not many can or will ever follow.

  • My sincere condolences to your family in the passing of your husband, Dad, grandfather. My family had a rather unique connection with yours in that my Dad worked alongside yours in the Interlake SD 21 for at least 8 years I believe. My sister Karen & I attended WCI in Warren with Michelle and Jeff in the ‘80’s. Karen did keep in touch with Michelle throughout their professional teaching careers until Karen’s death in 2019. In more recent years my brother in law Dan Giesbrecht and your Dad worked very closely together at the Manitoba Baseball Hall of Fame and I understand became quite good friends! I remember your Dad as a very friendly, engaging and lovely gentleman when I was in high school! He will be greatly missed. - Posted by: Kathy (Friesen) Unger (WCI grad 1985, my father HI Friesen was a trustee of Interlake SD21 working alongside Superintendent) on: Aug 30, 2022
