It is with heavy hearts and great sadness of the passing of Glenn Hildebrandt on Wednesday, November 22, 2023. While Glenn left us far too soon, the impact he had on our family will be felt for years to come.
He has now joined the angels and will visit us in our dreams for many years to come.
Glenn was Born in a small town of Wheatland, MB, on May 4th, 1947. He was the son of the late Walter and Minnie Hildebrandt.
He is survived by his loving wife Judy and his 2 children: His loving son Michael (wife Hilarie Hildebrandt) of Kelowna, BC and loving daughter Cheryl Hildebrandt (Perry Stewart) of Thornbury, ON.
A very proud “Grandpa” to 4 amazing grand boys Braeden Shohn, Tyler Glenn, Cole Andrew and Findley Tate Hildebrandt.
Glenn’s siblings include brothers Ron, Larry (Gloria), Danny and loving sister Marlene Fuder (Glen) and Terri and many nieces and nephews.
Glenn served proudly in the Canadian military from 1962-1989. He left home and joined the Royal Canadian Army Service Corps, “The Boy Soldier’s” at the age of 16, in CFB Borden, then transferred to the Royal Canadian Dental Corp. During his career he served in the Middle East and completed a tour aboard ship with the dental mobile unit in the UK. At the young age of 38, he exemplified achievement of the highest rank, Chief Warrant Officer. Glenn was always a teacher, a mentor and a leader and he was always there for you when you needed him.
On retirement he joined Atlantic Dental Laboratories in 1989 and later became sole owner and operator serving Atlantic Canada with dental laboratories ltd. He spearheaded many initiatives as part of the Canadian Dental Laboratories Technology board and helped drive the standards of performance and professionalism throughout Canada. His dedication paved the way for future generations to become highly skilled members of this industry.
Glenn had an unmatched love for his family and he felt they were his greatest accomplishment and the centre of his universe. He had a great presence and you always knew when he entered a room.
He was always quick with a story and loved to talk about his adventures in the military. Many had heard those stories more than once, but wouldn't we love to hear them again. Glenn possessed a tremendous wealth of knowledge on many subjects including construction, growing food and the natural world just to name a few. He was definitely "one of a kind" and they don't make them like him anymore.
Our dad said to us he was like a teddy bear and just loved to be hugged and loved by his family.
We all love you Glenn, dad, miss you so much!
