Obituary

Glen Abram Hildebrandt was born on August 23, 1968 and he passed away after an almost four year battle with cancer on January 9, 2019.

He is survived and loved by his wife Laurel, sons Donovan and Joshua; his parents Abe and Alma Hildebrandt; his sister Donna (Dan) Zacharias; brother Brian (Dianne) Hildebrandt; nieces & nephews Lynette (Artisa & Azzira) & Melanie Zacharias; Lauren (Colin) Dueck; Lee, Alana (fiancé Levi); father-in-law David (Margaret) Friesen; sister-in-law Darlene (Dan) Wollf , niece & nephews: Austin, Ginelle (Lyle), Dawson ; brother-in-law Jonathon Friesen,  niece and nephews: Caleb, Chelsea, Connor; as well as many beloved friends, family and colleagues.

Glen was known for his great big heart filled with kindness, service, patience and the love of God for all he encountered. He was a gentle giant. His sense of humour was always something that lightened our hearts, even on his last day. He has left a huge hole by leaving this world and will be sorely missed. He fought the good fight & was rewarded with the eternal crown.

There will be a viewing Thursday evening, January 17th  from 7pm – 8pm and a celebration of his life Friday, January 18th at 1 pm both at Emmanuel Mennonite Church, 3471 Clearbrook Road, Abbotsford.  A reception will follow with an open mike for those who want to share memories of Glen.

Laurel, Donavon, and Josh: Condolences to you as you grieve the loss of someone so dear. My best memories of Glen are when we were both conference youth ministers, he in BC and I in Alberta. His bigheartedness was shown to me in how he volunteered to drive our moving truck when we moved to Abbotsford. Our work, church, and family life took us in different directions but it has been so good to see Micah make friends with Josh and Donovan at Camp Squeah last summer and then to have had both in my classes. Prayers, Gareth Brandt

I was so sorry to read about Glen’s passing. Not sure if you were aware that Richard passed away in September, also from cancer. So I’m sending condolences on his behalf, knowing of his high regard for both of you. May you and your family find peace in your faith.
