Glenn Leon Nordin

A Life Well Lived

It is with cherished memories that the family of Glenn Nordin celebrate the blessing that he was to all who knew him.

Glenn was born and raised in Salmon Arm BC to William and Louise Nordin. His brother, Gary Nordin, and he shared joyous childhood memories on Shuswap Lake of camping, swimming, and boating for many summers.

Throughout his teenage years and beyond he loved and excelled at softball and baseball as a pitcher.

During this time the family moved to Quesnel and settled – where he met and married his soul mate, Joyce Mariash, and her daughter Pamela Richet.

Their daughter, Kimberly Nordin, was born one year later.

Hardworking and loyal in all ways, he worked at West Fraser for over 40 years to care for and create security for his family.

Friends and family will always remember his unique sense of humor – being caught off-guard by his sudden quips of dry wit at the best of moments.

His compassion and quiet strength drew people to him, and everyone who spent even a short time with him walked away feeling uplifted and strong, but more peaceful. His circle of friends will always remember him for this gift.

That special kindness created an easy and deep connection with animals – the family’s dogs always felt a special bond with his energy – as many will remember him driving in the truck with our dog or strolling the riverbank while rockhounding, both of them smiling.

A man of honor, dignity, loyalty, and honesty – he taught by example; never forget to enjoy the simple pleasures, love with your whole heart, and treat everyone with decency. We are all grateful for what you showed us, and will never forget.

It was Glenn’s wish that family and friends gather together comfortably and casually at

his home on Saturday,

April 18, 2 – 5 pm to enjoy good memories and good conversation.

Donations can be made at the gathering to Kim Nordin to be directly presented to Crooked Leg Ranch (Animal Rescue and Sanctuary) in Glenn’s honor.
