We are sorry to bring sad news, but I know that many of you knew Glen Pinch and would want to know of his passing.  

One of our members was contacted by his niece.  She writes:

"Glen passed away quietly yesterday (March 6th).  He did not suffer and was not in pain."

"Glen left instructions to ask me to let his retired teacher colleagues and friends know that he has passed.  There will not be a funeral but a 
small celebration of life will take place later in the spring somewhere in the White Rock area."  

Glen’s niece will let me know the details later and I will pass them to you. If you have an individual or group with which you wish to share this information, you are welcome to do that.
