July 1933 – February 27, 2021. It is with heavy hearts we say goodbye to Glen. He leaves behind the love of his life for the past 62 years, Sharon (Bradbury). He was an amazing father to daughter Teresa Kelly and son Brad (predeceased 2009), and loving Grandfather to Patrick Kelly, Matthew and Nathanial Charlesworth.
He leaves behind his brother John Charlesworth, 3 nieces, 5 nephews and their families, and many cousins, whom he loved dearly.
He was born in Yorkton Saskatchewan and moved with his family to BC in 1942, where he grew up in Kerrisdale.
Glen spent many years in the hotel industry as owners of two hotels, the Travelodge in Cache Creek and the Hospitality Inn in Kamloops. He was very involved in tourism. He was president of the Thompson-Nicola Regional District in Kamloops for a number of years. He was one of the initiators of the Rocky Mountaineer Railway as well as the International Coach Tour Industry in Kamloops.
Glen was lucky enough to retire at the age of 58 and he moved with Sharon to Langley and subsequently Abbotsford. He and Sharon spent many years travelling together – it was one of the passions they shared. They were either planning trips or out in their R.V. touring North America. If they were not exploring on land they were on a cruise ship seeing all the sights the world had to offer – they didn’t miss a continent.
Glen’s sense of humor, kindness, helpfulness, along with his thoughtfulness and generous ways will be missed by all who knew him.
Special thanks to Dr. Holden Chow.
