Warren Glenn Cleveland –
April 6, 1938 to September 20, 2022, 84 years. The year, 2020 was like few, if any, that have gone before it. PANDEMIC. But Glenn had his own issues to deal with. He was diagnosed early in that year with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, and endured many months of various chemo therapies, none of which accomplished the desired effect. The prognosis early this year was 3 to 6 months for Glenn’s life on this planet. Through it all, his faith in his Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ has given him a sense of peace and a cheerful spirit that is beyond understanding. He was able to live out the rest of his days at home with palliative care checking on him, and his dear wife Mary, and extended family always at hand. He slipped peacefully into the presence of his Lord on September 20, 2022.
Glenn is predeceased by his parents Hilbert and Susanna Cleveland. He is survived by his two sisters, Pauline Lankin (late Ross), and Joy (Don) Hill, nieces and nephews: Debbie (Tim) Grigg, Steve (Julie) Hill, Patti Hill, Carol (Steve) Bannerman, David Lankin, Marianne (Mike) Diamond, Jon (Ann) Lankin, plus, many grand nieces and nephews.
The Lord blessed Glenn with 31 happy years with his dear wife, the late Mary. Her loving family received him as one of their own, and they were dear to his heart: Cherie McCallum/Ewert and Frank Ewert, and Jim and Sue McCallum, and their children and grandchildren.
Glenn farmed for many years in Harwich Township with his father. He also worked at building with his brothers in law, as well as for a local builder. In the 1960’s and 70’s he enjoyed travelling to Japan, Korea, Hong Kong, the Holy Land, and Zambia. Five of his journeys involved volunteering as a missionary builder and maintenance worker on mission stations in Zambia and Korea. In retirement, he began writing poetry, and continued to pursue his interests in building, sailing, and enjoying family and friends.
As per his wishes, cremation has taken place and visitation will he held at the Blenheim Baptist Church on Monday September 26, 2022 from 10:00am until 11:00am at which time the funeral service will be held with Rev. Bill Terris and Rev. Mike Sealy officiating. Interment will follow at Evergreen Cemetery in Blenheim. Donations made in memory of Glenn to Teen Challenge or the Erie Shores Hospice would be appreciated. Online condolences may be left at

My deepest condolences to Glenn’s family. I grew up across the road from Glenn when he was at his parent’s home. I have fond memories of the many games of chess.

I'm so thankful for such a dear uncle that I had in Uncle Glenn. He was so kind and friendly. I have been living far away for quite some time, but my Mom has continued to tell me how humble and thankful Uncle Glenn was even through all of his suffering. I am so happy for him that he is now with Jesus and living a glorious life now for all eternity. I look forward to joining him there someday soon! Carol Bannerman

Please accept our heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Glenn. Glenn and Mary were great friends with my sister Martha and brother-in-law, Mike Sheppard. We thoroughly enjoyed our visits to Glenn and Mary’s house, and also enjoyed their visits to our home in Newtown, Newfoundland. They were so friendly and enjoyable to be around. We can visualize seeing Glenn up above now with Mary and Martha looking down on us and telling jokes about us Newfoundlanders. Glenn is no longer physically with us, but our memories with him and Mary will be always in our hearts. 🥰🙏🙏. Wayne and Marilyn Perry

A true gentleman....the first thing that comes to my mind when I think of a little girl, attending Blenheim Baptist Church, Glenn was who I certainly looked up to...he always took the time for me. He always had a "listening ear" no matter who you were... You will certainly be missed Glenn. RIP

Our sincere condolence to the families of Glenn and Mary. They were a beautiful couple, full of smiles and laughter, looking out for each other. Glenn had a musical talent, could get music from many instruments, the violin was played in Sunday Service at Blenheim Baptist Church most Sundays until Glenn was no longer able to play. They are missed.

Deepest condolences to the families of Glenn and Mary. Many fond memories of the quartet of which he and Mary were members and their beautiful music. Always lots of laughter. Will remember Glenn as a kind, gentle soul. RIP
