GLENN ALBERT BULLEN

Glenn slipped away peacefully in the early hours of April 8, 2011. Predeceased by his parents, George and Jean Clark; his son, Leslie; brother Don Clark and his wife, Patti; his nephew Glenn; his brother and sister-in-law, John and Fay Matthews and his niece Greta Langley.

Survived by his life partner and wife, Sally, daughters, Lora Lee (Maarten), Maxine (Harvey) and grandchildren, Adrienne, Vincent, Nigel, Sadie, Christopher, Kyle, Kurtis, Stevie-Marie and Alyssa, brother Bob (Jan), sister Dianna (Lanny) and many nieces and nephews.

Born in Victoria, he grew up in Sooke, B.C. He worked at the Sooke Forest Products (Lamford) for most of his working life. Glenn married his high school sweetheart on May 20, 1961. His other great love was pitching in the Men’s Senior Softball League in Victoria, where he was known competitively as ‘Gunner’. Oh, the stories he could tell ….

He was proud of his family and was affectionately known as ‘Uncle Bump-Bump’. In 1997, Glenn and Sally moved to Fanny Bay, changing their careers and farmed their own oyster lease on Denman Island, where they enjoyed backbreaking work and their experiences with nature. Glenn and Sally retired in 2006, where he lived his remaining years near his ‘Brother Bob’ in Comox. His sense of humour and quick wit will be greatly missed by his family and friends.

There will be a ‘Celebration of Life’ on Friday, April 15, 2011 at 1:30pm at the Sooke Community Hall Dining Room. Those wishing to do so, may make donations in his memory to the Alzheimer Society of B.C., 300-828 West 8th Ave, Vancouver, BC V5Z 1E2 or to the Sooke Region Museum , P.O. Box 774, Sooke, BC V9Z lH7.
