Leslie Glanville Obituary

In Loving Memory of
Leslie Rubin Morris Glanville
December 11, 1936 - September 11, 2023

Leslie Glanville, of Providence Bay, passed away at the age of 86 on Monday, September 11, 2023 on his own terms.

Born South of Exeter, Ontario in 1936, he was the last of 11 children of Harold and Tillie (nee Brown of Ice Lake) Glanville. 

Raised in Britainville, Manitoulin Island from 5-15 years old, his brother Chester taught him how to play guitar and this musical duo would entertain friends and family thereafter.

Les was a Jack of all Trades. Truck driving out of London, Ontario was his early career including long hauls to Alberta, Newfoundland and the US.
His driving skills are spoke of to this day.

Once back on Manitoulin, Les took up commercial fishing for another 20 years until retirement. In retirement he travelled to Europe, the UK, and Australia seeing places he had only imagined. Les was known for making the best smoked fish and maple syrup and will be remembered as a good friend and neighbour in his community
and always being ready with a joke.
Les is survived by his wife Elsie (Scott) Glanville,

his children Bryan (Janice) Glanville,
Carol (J.L.) Gallant,
Laura Ketalaars,
Lesley (Marc) Kerckhoff
and Charles (Alicia) Glanville,

his 7 grandchildren:
Robert, Shawn, Lori, Kris, Jeff, Amy and Emily,

his 9 great-grandchildren

and his 6 great-great grandchildren.
