Glenn was born in Minnedosa, MB at the Lady Minto Hospital to Will and Marj Parrott.
Glenn will be lovingly remembered by his wife Bobbie; sons Glenn (Kimme), Stuart (Joan), and Lawrence (Colleen); grandchildren Cory (Triss), Kyle, Chantelle, Mark, Joel, Ashlyn, Mackenzie, Holly, Claudia, Cameron, and Lucas; great grandchildren Eric and Harper; sisters, Gladys (Allan) Broome, Yvonne Scott, and Joyce Graham; brother Ron (Beryl); brothers-in-law, Brian Barton and Terry (Sheila) Barton; numerous nephews and nieces.
He was predeceased by his son Michael; parents Will and Marj; brothers-in law, Bert Graham, Reg Scott and Winston Barton; and sister-in-law Rose Marie “Bunny” Barton.
Glenn spent his school years attending classes at Havelock School and Bethany School. After completing Grade 10, he attended Agriculture School in Brandon where he acquired skills in carpentry, electrical, plumbing, welding, and agriculture.
In 1956, Glenn moved to Bissett, MB to work at the San Antonio gold mine. While working in this small mining town in northern Manitoba, he met his future wife Bobbie, whom he married on December 29, 1959. The Parrott family had planned to celebrate the couples 60th (Diamond) Anniversary but sadly Glenn left us 10 days prior to this joyful occasion. After Glenn’s brief stay in Bissett, he moved to Winnipeg where he worked at Pilkington Glass and Shore Glass before moving back to Bethany in 1965. It was here that he established a home, building his house near where he grew up, and lived for the next 54 years. Through the 60s, 70s and 80s Glenn enjoyed farming the land he lived on. He also took a position at Brandon Paint & Glass as a glazier/foreman through the 60s and 70s. In 1978 he founded Glenndosa Glass Ltd. in Minnedosa. He operated this family business with his wife and four boys until his retirement in 1995.
As a father, dad was known as a hard worker and a jack-of-all-trades who patiently passed on his many skills to his sons. Papa also spent countless hours attending an endless number of events for his many grandchildren. He enjoyed curling, golfing, and travelling around the world enjoying many adventures. In his later years, he spent his time puttering around the farm, fixing equipment, gardening, yard care, and hitting golf balls over the hill. He was a devoted member of the St. Alphonsus Catholic Church where he took an active role in the church’s operations. He will be remembered by all as a kind and gentle man.
Funeral service will be held at St. Alphonsus Church in Minnedosa on January 11th at 1:30 pm.
