Glen Norman Canfield


Peacefully with family by his side, on June 2, 2020 Glen Norman Canfield passed away to be with family and friends gone before him. Glen followed in his father’s footsteps, as a truck owner/ operator all his life. As a young boy he would often be found fixing the truck with his father. In his youth Glen played hockey and created havoc with his brothers and cousins on Rabbit Lake where they swam, explored, fished and snow machined. One of Glen’s favourite things to do in spring as the ice was leaving the shore was to take the snow machine and cross the open water to the ice and back again just to see how far he could go. Glen loved fast cars. He was the proud owner of a Z28 Camaro and a GTO. Glen’s Z28 was the fastest car in Kenora for quite a long time, something he was very proud of. Another passion he had was trapping on and around Black Sturgeon Lake, where he later moved to raise his family and continue his trucking career. Glen spent lots of time in the bush up north hunting and fishing with family and friends. He passed on many stories and happily shared his knowledge about his hunting and fishing spots and the “do’s and do not’s” to go along with them. Although Glen knew the right way of doing things, he often had a tendency to do and teach the opposite. Besides his fast cars and big truck, Glen’s most noted sense of pride was that of his children. He will be sadly missed by his sons Travis Canfield and Larry (Glenda) Canfield and Glen’s long time fur baby, Abby.

The family would like to thank Pinecrest Home for the Aged for their care and compassion of Glen in his years as a resident. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Canadian Heart and Stroke Foundation in his honour.
