Glenn Craner
November 3, 1943 – January 30, 2018

With our deepest sorrow we mourn the passing of Glenn Craner on January 30, 2018 at the Thunder Bay Regional Health Center.

Glenn was born in Dryden, Ontario on November 3, 1943.  He is remembered and loved by his family, sister Juanita (Toronto, ON) brothers Ken (Markdale, ON), Jerry and Alice (Rocky Mountain House, Alta) with several nieces and nephews, son Louis Ainslie (Shiela), daughter Sue Premack (Terry) and his grandchildren:  David, Sarah (Jeff), Stephanie (Brendan), John (Katelyn), and Louis (Ashley), as well as his nine great-grandchildren.  

Glenn was predeceased by his wife Dorothy Ainslie on December 23, 2017, sister Marilyn and brothers Ron and Doug.

Glenn worked for the Ministry of Natural Resources until he retired. He enjoyed the outdoors, gardening and chatting with friends.
Glenn would spend winters in the States for the climate and, of course, for easy access to another favourite hobby, gambling.  Las Vegas was Glenn and Dorothy’s winter home for many years. It was always fun to hear the stories of their travels and their wins or losses.  
When at home in Wabigoon, he was happiest spending time with family and showing everyone the flowers around the yard and especially his vegetable garden.  Glenn loved picking blueberries and was proud of the fact that they were always clean.   On the weekends in the summer, you could find him selling the vegetables and berries at the farmer’s market.

Cremation has taken place, and in accordance with Glenn’s wishes, there will be no funeral.  Interment will follow at later date.  

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the DRHC – Oncology Dept. or The Canadian Cancer Society.  

Glenn will always be loved and missed.
