It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Glen Robert Gnatuk, who departed this world on January 5, 2024. Glen is predeceased by his father Donald Gnatuk, and leaves behind his cherished mothers Laura and Patricia Sheldrick.
He is survived by his siblings, Robert Monaco, Sherri-Ann Hamilton (Mark), Melissa Burgoin (Jason), and Mercede Burgoin. Glen will be missed by his beloved grandmother Leah Sheldrick, and his presence will be deeply missed by his many aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews: Forrest, Nieko (predeceased), and Ethan; Nolan and Ainsley; Lily and Quinten, along with many cousins.
Glen's greatest joys in life were his children, Ares Stonehouse and Trinity Gnatuk, who were a source of immeasurable pride and happiness.
Glen was known for his piercing blue eyes, infectious smile, and a gentle, loving soul. His ability to forge connections and friendships wherever he went was a testament to the kindness that emanated from his heart. Glen found solace in the beauty of nature, whether camping at the Pinery or expressing his creativity through sketching and art. He had a passion for wildlife, a love for dragons, and a skillful hand at a good game of poker.
A Visitation to celebrate Glen's life will be held at the Donald V. Brown Funeral Home, 36 Lake Avenue Drive, on Saturday, January 13, 2024, from 2-4 p.m. A Celebration of Glen’s life will continue afterwords on Saturday at the Royal Canadian Legion Battlefield Branch 622, located at 12 King St. East Stoney Creek from 4-7 p.m.
In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests donations in Glen's memory to "Human Beings of Hamilton," a cause that held special meaning to Glen. Donations and contact for the organization can be found at www.humanbeingsofhamilton.ca
