Glenn Frederick Spicer

April 7, 1947 – September 14, 2021
Glenn Frederick Spicer was born in Toronto, Ontario. This peaceful warrior survived a 24 year battle with cancer with grace and courage. Glenn spent many cherished moments doing sculpture, stained glass, paintings, photography, sailing and playing music.
Glenn was a zookeeper for the Metropolitan Toronto Zoo. He was a scientific illustrator (U. of Guelph). He sculpted missing dinosaur bones for the Dinosaur Gallery at the Royal Ontario Museum. He was the senior display artist (Amazon Gallery at the Vancouver Aquarium).
Some of his public sculpted works include:
“Mother and Child” (Duncan City Hall)
“In search of Snipe” (Chemainus)
“Friends” (Ladysmith Animal Hospital)
“Eagle and Dove” (Burnaby)
His stained glass work can be seen at the Cowichan District Hospital and the Duncan United Church. Glenn also taught all levels of stain glass classes at Malaspina College and VIU.
His love of nature was often reflected in amazing artwork.
Glenn will always be remembered for his love and generosity for his wife, friends and family. He loved to share his gifts of creativity, intelligence and his wonderful, witty sense of humour. Although we no longer can see Glenn with our eyes, we will always see him with our hearts.
We are sending out a special thanks to the loving care given by the staff of the Cowichan Hospice House, Dr. Barr, Dr. Masuda and the staff of First Memorial Funeral Services.Obituary
