DEVEAUX, Glen Peter

March 11, 1973 – Miramichi, New Brunswick
April 5, 2014 – Calgary, Alberta

We deeply mourn Glen’s passing and at the same time celebrate his life. He touched all of our lives in so many special ways, with his sense of humour, his wit and his love of entertaining with his guitar and songs.

Glen was born in Miramichi, NB and after college decided to move to Fort McMurray, AB to pursue a career with Syncrude Canada. He joined as a power engineer and over the years, soon found his niche as an incident investigator and facilitator.

In October 2013, Glen decided to take a year off to realize a lifelong dream of travel with his truck and trailer, his Harley and no specific itinerary. On February 7th, his year of travel and adventure sadly ended when he suffered a tragic accident in Los Cabos, Mexico and with the same determination that he lived his life, he endeavored to fight and win this ultimate battle. However on April 5th, Glen peacefully succumbed to his extensive injuries with his loving family by his side. Glen’s commitment to living life to the fullest and his unwavering determination are an example for all of us to live by.

He will be missed forever by his mother Joyce; his father Patrick; his sisters, Dawn (Jay) Gartry and Sheryl Deveaux (Gord Finnigan); his brother Cory Deveaux; his six nephews, Jarrid, Nathan, Lucus, Matthew, Kieran, and Dawson; his only niece Marissa; and his new love Ruth. Glen will also be missed by his grandparents, Mary Deveaux, and Loretta and Ned Desroches; cousins, aunts, uncles, and many, many friends.

A Celebration of Glen’s Life will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S, Chapel of the Bells (2720 Centre Street North) on Saturday, April 19, 2014 at 4:00 p.m. For Glen’s east coast family and friends, there will be a service and celebration of his life this summer in P.E.I. where he will also be laid to rest. Further details will follow at a later date. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

In living memory of Glen Deveaux, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Chapel of the Bells, 2720 CENTRE STREET NORTH, Telephone: 403-276-2296.

    Deveaux Family –
    My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. I worked with Glen at Syncrude and had the opportunity to get to know him better over the past two years and – what a guy! His energy, wit, and personality made you want to be around him. He was someone I looked up to – and I’m so fortunate to have known him. Rest in Peace, Glen – will never forget you.

    Glenn was a great person, he always went out of his way to help me at work. The type of guy who could make me laugh; he was so easy to get along with and always so happy. Such a pleasure to be around.
    He will be missed but he won’t be forgotten. My deepest sympathies, to his family and close friends.

  10. Joyce and family I am very very sorry for your loss. I knew Glen since we were kids but its only in the last few years that we reconnected again on Facebook. I so enjoyed the pictures and stories of all his travelling and life adventures. It was so apparent that he was enjoying life and living it to its fullest, it was inspiring really. He seemed to also connect with people he met on his travels because on several occasions he gave me recommendations for various restaurants or places to unwind and he always gave me the name of someone who worked there and told me to tell them that “Glen” sent you. These places were all over Canada as well. That’s a special talent to be able to connect with people like that and one of the many reasons we’ll all miss him. My prayers will be with you and your family.

    The Deveaux Family,

    From Cindy and I, our deepest heart felt condolences for your loss.

    Below is a Poem, a friend gave to me many years ago, I cannot tell you how many times it has helped me through difficult times, our prayer for your family is that it may help bring comfort to you at this time of grief and loss.

    THE MASTERS WAY

    Not ours to know the reason why,
    Unanswered is our prayers.
    But ours to wait for Gods own time,
    To lift the cross we bear.

    Not ours to know the reason why,
    From loved ones we must part.
    But ours to live in faith and hope,
    Though bleeding be the heart.

    Not ours to know the reason why,
    This anguish strife and pain.
    But ours to know a crown of thorns.
    Sweet grace for us to gain.

    A cross, a bleeding heart, a crown,
    What greater gifts are given?
    Be still my heart and murmur not,
    For these are the keys of heaven.

    We are so sorry for your loss, our thoughts and prayers are with the family at this very difficult time. I first met Glen in high school and then we both went on to college at NBCC SJ. During this time we became great friends, so great he was the best man in my wedding. We had so much fun in those years. In time we lost touch but he was always a great friend, even offering his home to me while I was in Fort McMurray. He was a hard worker, great musician, and a great friend, he will be sadly missed.

    Our deepest condolences to the Deveaux family. Both Dave and I had the pleasure of getting to know Glen the past couple of years amongst the regular patrons at the Blackhorse…we started off as competitors at Trivia, then soon enough became friends. I will always remember his quick wit, vibrant laugh and his love for music…someone as special as Glen will never be forgotten. He will remain in our hearts forever…

    “What moves through us is a silence, a quiet sadness, a longing for one more day, one more word, one more touch. We may not understand why you left this earth so soon, or why you left before we were ready to say good-bye, but little by little, we begin to remember not just that you died, but that you lived. And that your life gave us memories too beautiful to forget”

  37. My deep heartfelt condolences for Glen’s loved ones. I have known Glen over several years though the TapRooT Summits he attended and lots of phone conversations he and I had about using TapRooT at Syncrude. I considered him a friend as did all of our company. He was such a smart, fun, charismatic guy, I will miss him. I always hoped we could convince him to teach TapRooT with us in the future. I know his passing is heartbreaking to all of his family and friends. If you haven’t seen the caring comments and pictures we had of Glen, you can see them on our website blog at http://www.taproot.com/archives/43512. There are so many people that his love and personality touched in a positive way. I am sure you are all very proud of the man Glen was. He will be missed by many.

    I just learned of Glen’s passing and am so saddened. I worked with Glen in the Utilities area at Syncrude. Glen was so full of life and curiosity. I trusted Glen from the get go. He was open and honest, never “sugar coated” anything. The world has lost a “great guy”. My thoughts and prayers are with the Deveaux family as they mourn their loss. Peace be with you Glen.
