Gerald Glenn Addie

December 1, 1934- October 6, 2023

With saddened hearts, the family of Glenn Addie of Bonnyville, Alberta regretfully announce the passing of their beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother-in-law and uncle on Friday, October 6, 2023 at the age of 88 years.

Glenn was born in Regina, SK and raised on 112th Street in Sutherland where he attended grade school, and then Saskatoon Technical Collegiate. He always laughed as there were 30 in the class, 28 women and two men who were both named Glenn.  He always had a story of the times growing up in Sutherland and their family connections to the railway.

He spent his entire career in the oilfield starting in Smiley, SK, moving to Estevan, back to Coleville, and finally the corporate offices in Calgary where he still managed to escape the city and spend time out in the field. He was well respected for his knowledge in the oilpatch where he built and maintained many business relationships along with numerous friendships throughout his career, even after retirement in 1998, when he and Elaine moved to Bonnyville his relationships and friendships continued.

In his retirement to Moose Lake the woodshop was one of his favorite places and many have been a recipient of his woodworking knowledge or, if lucky enough, a recipient of his work. Dave gave him the nickname “Master Builder of the three-legged stool”. There wasn’t a wood-working project too small or too big - he lived for the challenge.

He will be remembered for his “Glenn Jokes”, and we are sure he and his good friend Bob Dorsett are now together with pens, paper and arguing black is white with each other with neither coming out a winner.

Glenn is lovingly survived by his wife of 67 years: Elaine Addie of Bonnyville, AB; children: Barbara Addie of Regina, SK, Dave (Peggy) Addie of Bonnyville, AB; granddaughter: Janelle Addie of Calgary, AB; sister-in-law Elmira Addie of Vancouver, B.C. and her family, the family of Don & Iola Addie; sisters-in law: Darleen (Guy) Belliveau of Saskatoon, SK, Bette Lynn (Peter) Duncan of Victoria, B.C. and their family, Wendy (Dave) Voth of Kenora, ON and their family; as well as close friends: John & Joanne Letwinetz and their children, Kristen & Kendall, Tim & Susan Schultz and their children, Brianne & Kayla.

Glenn was predeceased by his parents: David & Marie Addie; brothers: Bob Addie, Don (Iola) Addie.
