Glen Wiebe Obituary

At home, with his loving wife of 52 years and his supporting family, Glen Wiebe met his Saviour face to face at the age of 76.

He will be lovingly remembered by his wife, Sharon, their five children and their spouses, and their nineteen grandchildren: David and Jennifer (Hayden, Lennox, Caelum), Jason and Eveyln (Coleton and Jody, Eden and Noah, Ava, Halle), Annemarie and Josiah (Darby, Hadley and Raphael, Cyrus and Bella, Ryrie, Chafer), Becky and Samuel (Sammy, Lucas, Greyson, Micah), Esther and Tommy (Marshall, Conway, Ledger). Also missed by his brothers and sisters, and their spouses: Helen and Diedrich, Margaret and Bill, Ruby and Earl, George and Karen, Barry and Darla, Marvin and Lorna, Bruce and Carol, Connie and Les, Phil and Karen.

Predeceased by his parents: Ben and Tina Wiebe, and three brothers: David in infancy, Alvin, Johnny.

Glen grew up in Edrans, MB as the second oldest child of the large family of Ben and Tina Wiebe. Glen’s love for airplanes began as a young child when, at the age of seven, he carved his own propeller. He went on to obtain his commercial pilot’s license and aircraft maintenance license. Glen used these skills to successfully run his own crop spraying business in Gladstone, MB for three years. From 1986-1997, Glen served in mission aviation for three different mission organizations. Glen finished his career working at the Southport military base as an aircraft mechanic. In 2014, the year of Glen’s retirement, he was diagnosed with prostate cancer. In retirement, Glen continued his passion for airplanes by beginning to build his own. The “Spruce Sparrow” was a huge undertaking that showcased Glen’s skill with and knowledge of airplanes. Unfortunately, cancer prevented the Spruce Sparrow from taking its first flight. Glen also had a Harley Davidson motorcycle, which was impeccably maintained. He, with Sharon on the back, enjoyed many bike trips, from coast to coast, and made a lot of memories. Even more important than Glen’s passion for airplanes or Harleys, was his faith. His continual hunger for truth had a huge impact on his children's lives and all those who knew him. His love for the Lord shone especially in music when he used his huge range, from the deepest bass to the most beautiful tenor, to lead singing in church, to sing in a men’s quartet, and to lead his family in singing special music numbers in worship of his Saviour. Family was very important to Glen, evident first and foremost in how well he loved his wife. Their relationship set an example for all their children and grandchildren, who each hold a part of the solid foundation Glen established in leading his family to love the Lord.

The family would like to extend a huge thank you to all who have supported Glen in his journey with cancer. This is not a path we would have chosen, but God has been faithful through it all and we continue to trust Him. We grieve, but not without hope.

Friends and family have shared their relationship to show their support.
How do you know Glen Wiebe?
We are sorry for your loss.
Help others honor Glen's memory.
