With much sadness the family of Glenn M. Estabrooks announce his passing on February 9, 2021. Glenn was born in Sackville, NB to Leaman and Grace (Babcock) Estabrooks.
He is survived by his wife, Kathleen (MacRae) of 61 years and their three children, Bruce (Stephanie) and their two sons, Alex and Andrew of Riverview, Susan of Florenceville-Bristol, NB and Greig (Manon) and their two children, Christopher and Victoria of St Lazare, QC. He is also survived by his younger brother, Dale, of Sackville, as well as an uncle, Kenneth of Moncton.
Glenn served with the Moncton Police Force for 35 years, retiring in 1993. Glenn enjoyed spending time at his camp in Parkindale and listening to country and western music. He and Kaye enjoyed many bus trips to the USA in their retirement years. More importantly, he enjoyed the company of his family, of whom he was most proud. He enjoyed a good spread of food and ate heartily. Those who knew Dad best would know that he lived by the motto "There’s a place for everything and everything in its place". His neatly organized garage, camp and yard were a testament to that fact. Neighbours noted the impeccable pride he took in maintaining his vehicles. He liked nothing more than basking in the sun on his backyard deck and shooting the breeze over Kaye’s homemade ice tea and cookies with anyone who dropped by.
The family wishes to express their heartfelt thanks to the caring staff of Salvation Army Lakeview Manor, Riverview, where Glenn resided over the last three years. The care he received there was second to none and Dad certainly appreciated every extra effort made to ensure the comfort of both him and Kaye.
The family is also indebted to family friends, Judy Bulmer, Pam Donnelly, Gill Wesselby and Marg Murray, whose visits and assistance have been greatly appreciated.
A graveside service will be held at Black River Community Cemetery on Saturday, August 21, 2021 at 1 pm.
