Edward Douglas Glansman
September 5th 1929 – September 21st 2021
Predeceased by his parents Jules and Martha Glansman. Edward will be sadly missed by his wife of 67 years Bernardine Glansman (nee Simonson). They were better together and are ‘always and forever’.
Loved by 2 daughters Arlene (Terry) Cairns and Laureen Strekies.
Also, by his 5 grandchildren Nolan (Kathleen) Cairns, Leslie Cairns, Michelle (Josh) Strekies, April Strekies, Tara (Sanjay) Strekies as well as 6 great grandchildren Jace, Holden, Oliver, Hannah, Rowan and Sadie.
He will also be remembered by his sister-in-law Helen Webb (nee Simonson) many nieces and nephews and relatives in both Canada and Europe.
Thank you to the many friends who made his time memorable, especially his life long buddy Ron Buckell who he loved to go fishing with and travel the world. Ed was a kind man who always had a smile. His favorite things were gladiolas, pineapple, coffee, apple fritters, Johnny Cash music and of course happy hour with a dark rum and coke.
He worked for 34 years for the Edmonton water department and was retired for 37 years. A full and beautiful life.
Respecting his wishes cremation has taken place and there will be no formal service. A private gathering at Bardo Cemetery near Kingman, Alberta will take place in the future.
Thank you to the staff of the Strathcona County Hospital the Misericordia Hospital, the Capital Care Angus Magoogan Wing, the Sherwood Care Center, the U of A Hospital and the various caring EMS staff.
Your professionalism and kindness in these unbelievable times was so appreciated.
