On April 16th, Glen Albers our beloved stepfather, husband, son, uncle, cousin, and friend passed away in the comfort of his home surrounded by his loving family with his heart filled with love, gratitude, and contentment.
Glen came into our lives back in the mid 70’s in Niagara-on-the lake and immediately provided stability to our ever-changing lives. He fell in love with his soul mate, who had 3 kids. For a young man of 25 years, he never wavered in his commitment to provide, nurture, and love his family. Those first 4 years we all lived together in that small house in Niagara-on-the-lake was a life shaping bonding experience. Glen brought music into our house and the party began. He will forever be remembered for his savory chicken wings, baked bread and guitar playing sessions where more than a few strings were broken during his passionate playing. Thank you for all that music!
The next 47 years my mom and Glen raised a family, welcomed grandchildren, celebrated life, laughed, cried, felt joy, pain, gratitude and above all experienced immense love for one another. Their guiding light over the last 20 years was the spiritual path they shared together. All the benefits of that spiritual practice blossomed once again in Glen’s final months of his beautiful life. The courage, grace, humility, dignity, and love that poured out of his soul nourished his family one last time. He will be forever loved as a family man who was a hard working, gregarious, loyal, insightful, caring, and a loving spiritual soul that touched our hearts and many others. He will be missed and eternally loved!
With love and gratitude
The Albers, Baxter and Bonkowski families
