Glen Welch, 80, of Westport. It is with sadness that a much loved husband, dad, papa and brother peacefully left us Monday, Nov. 7, 2011 for his beautiful southern shore. He goes with the thoughts and memories of his loved ones by his side. Born in Westport, he was the son of the late Lawrence ‘Huddy’ and Gertrude ‘Ma’ (Thompson) Welch. He was known to his family and friends as Glen, Dad, Papa, Jake and to some as ‘Old Pal’. He was a life-long fisherman and avid hunter and he had a passion for both. Glen and his brother Billy were the envy of other local fishermen always seeming to have the number one catch, or so the stories go. He attended Westport Academy and loved to reminisce of schooldays and his boy hood chums. He always loved the outdoors and he spent many happy days back on the shore at his beloved camp, relaxing with his family, hiking the trails, beachcombing and making memories that we will treasure always. Two of his favorite pastimes were reading and listening to his music; forever will we hear the sound of country classics as we near his camp. He had a passion for gardening and his green thumb worked wonders on his vegetable and flower gardens. He loved his time spent with family and his youngest grandchildren could always bring a smile to his face. We'll miss his stories of days of long ago and his wave from the window of home wishing us good night. There's a face we'll always remember, A voice we shall always recall, a memory to cherish forever, of one so dear to us all. He is survived by his loving wife of 55 yrs, Beth (Garron); sons, Stephen (Glenda); David; beloved daughters, LaReta Titus (Clifton); Marlene Norwood (Dan), all of Westport; grandchildren, Dennis Welch (Nidia), whom he loved like his own son, of Westport and Dominican Republic; Curtis Welch, (Sammy); Travis Welch; Jessica Titus (Mike); Cody Titus; and Noah Norwood, all of Westport; great-grandchildren, Ben Welch and Alexander Welch; sisters, Connie Bisson and Lorraine Bezant, both of Westport; brothers, Lawrence 'Pete' (Delores) and Philip (Grace), all of Westport; and several nieces and nephews. Besides his parents, he was predeceased by his half-sister, Maxine Swift, and his brother, Billy. A lovely service was held outside back at the cove on Nov. 10 where family and close friends gathered to remember Glen's life with his youngest brother Phyl officiating. Donations in Glen's memory may be made to the Alzheimer Society of Nova Scotia or the Canadian Cancer Society. Arrangements were entrusted to Serenity Lindsay Funeral Home, 568 Main St., Wolfville, B4P 1E5, (1-877-542-4656). Condolences may be sent to the family at the funeral home address or at www.serenitylindsayfuneralhome.ca

There's a face we shall always remember. A voice we shall always recall, A memory to cherish forever, of one so dear to us all.
