Glenn Madsen Obituary

Glenn Paul Madsen passed away peacefully on April 28th, 2023, at the age of 80. He will be fondly remembered by his wife of 55 years, Colleen Madsen, his two children Dean (Kim) and Dawn, and his two brothers John (Joyce) and Bob. His two grandchildren Owen and Wyatt and the furry grand-dog, Murphy, round out the family who will dearly miss their “Grumpa”.

Glenn was born in Edmonton in 1942 but grew up in Kamloops where he met and married Colleen. He built a successful career as a skilled carpenter which spanned 50 years. Their twins were born in 1968 and shortly after Glenn moved his young family to the Shuswap where he enjoyed 42 years of “lake life” in Eagle Bay. Glenn was an avid fisherman who could be seen on any given night in his hand-crafted boat just off the shores of the Shuswap. He passed on his love of fishing and carpentry to his son, Dean and his creative side shines brightly in his daughter, Dawn. Glenn was a talented hockey player who enjoyed the comradery of the game, and he formed many life-long friendships with his teammates throughout the years. Once retired, Glenn and Colleen moved to Penticton in 2014 where they could be closer to the “kids”. Glenn passed his time working in the family vineyard, occasionally fishing, and taking Murphy on many relaxing walks. 

Glenn’s infectious laugh and sense of humour will be forever missed. Fish-on Glenn…
