He passed away on July 10, 2023, at the Carleton Manor in Woodstock, New Brunswick. On January 25, 1936, Glen Milheron was born to Roy and Edna (Hawkes) Milheron in Woodstock, New Brunswick. He spent the bulk of his formative years in Juniper, New Brunswick, where his family eventually settled. When he was in the middle of eighth grade, he moved to Woodstock to be closer to his grandma and finish high school there.
He married Marion Keary in 1957, and he and his two kids were quite close. They had a long and happy marriage of 64 years before her death in 2020. He stayed with NB Power his entire working life, eventually becoming a manager. Glen was a dedicated worker who thrived on a full schedule. He was always there to aid out his close circle of friends and family. He could construct anything and everything. He enjoyed various outdoor pursuits, including softball, camping, and fishing with his brothers and young kids. Bowling was his favorite sport forever, and he spent many years competing in the men’s league,
where he won numerous awards and prizes. In 2008, he and his championship bowling team were recognized into Woodstock, New Brunswick’s Sports Wall of Fame. He initiated the annual Blake Trophy competition. There, at the Woodstock Bowlacade, he fostered the sport of youth bowling and served as a mentor to countless young people over the years. Debbie Kearney (Gary) and Wendy Swim (John) are Debbie and Wendy’s daughters, and Graham Shaw is Debbie and Wendy’s grandchild.
