Hughes, Glen Victor
Glen passed away peacefully on Wednesday, December 1, 2004 while hospitalized at the West Coast General Hospital.
Glen’s devoted Christian faith provided him with strength to endure and cope with the myriad of incredible challenges he was dealt in his short life time. He was a devoted and loving husband and father and his profound sense of responsibility towards his children, gave him the will to go on in spite of his seriously compromised state of health in recent years. Glen was born on January 29, 1957 in Comox, BC and was a resident of Courtenay while growing up. After graduation Glen moved to Port Alberni where he continued to reside until his passing.

Glen was predeceased by his father, Harry Gordon Hughes (July 1973) and is survived by daughter Jessica Hughes; son Graham Hughes, adoring grandson Mattias Hughes, his devoted and loving mother Georgina Dorothy Hughes; and father Hank Grobowsky; and his loving sister Cauleene Pollock; and brother Wayne Hughes; sister-in-law Dagmar Hughes; stepsisters: Mrs Traci Gray, Mrs. Lisa Stregger, Mrs. Patti Leigh, and Mrs. Glenda McLean and their families.
