DEVUONO, Glen Dale

Dean, David and Perry DeVuono announce, with sorrow, the passing of their father, Glen Dale DeVuono at the age of 81 on Saturday, August 25, 2018.  Born in North Bay June 2, 1937.  He was predeceased by his parents Ruth and Paddy DeVuono and is survived by his sister Angie Ballantyne of Sault Ste. Marie.  Glen will be missed by his grandchildren, Alex, Avery, James, Brandon, Jarryd, Ryan, Brianne, Ben and Shantel.

Glen was Manager of the North Bay & District Chamber of Commerce for 33 years and was proud of having been part of a small group of Chamber Members who began development of our lakefront in 1975, by carving a beach and playground from what was a junkyard and jungle.  Glen was a 50-year club curler, a member of a fiercely competitive bridge group and spent countless hours enjoying the log cabin which he built in Chisholm in 1979.

In his earlier years, Glen was Manager of the Sault Star Wawa Bureau, Past President of the Wawa Lions Club and Honourary Member of Branch 429 Royal Canadian Legion.

He leaves behind best friends Victor Fedeli, Patti Carr, Sue Ortepi and Amy Nimens.  Thank you for a thousand acts of kindness.

The family, Dean (Cindy), David (Moreen), Perry (Sue) and “daughter” Patti would like to thank the nurses of the renal dialysis clinic and the nurses of C1 who have given great care to our father.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the North Bay Humane Society, Nipissing Serenity Hospice or a charity of your choice.

Cremation has taken place.  At Glen’s request, there is no funeral or visitation.  A celebration of life will be held Saturday, September 8, 2018 at the North Bay Granite Club from 1 pm to 4 pm.  We hope old friends, past curling colleagues, and Chamber friends that can attend, will stop by.

Arrangements entrusted to Martyn Funeral Home.
