It is with great sadness we announce the sudden passing of Glenn Poloway on March 27, 2020 in Salmon Arm, BC.  Glenn will be deeply missed by his family: his loving wife of 29 years, Valerie and their children, Joe, Laurel and Zareena; Glenn’s mother, Mary, and his siblings: Susan (Shahram, Shayda, Roya & Farhad); Dale (Pryscil), Allan, Diane (John & Aleah); Janice (Jeff); and Ken (Kaitlyn & Shayla); his mother-in-law, Sarah McFarlane; and numerous cousins and members of his extended family. Glenn was predeceased by his father, John Poloway and father-in-law, Wally McFarlane.
Glenn was a wonderful husband, father, brother and friend. He lived life to the fullest and took us along for the ride with his Incredible sense of humour and adventurous spirit. We all have wonderful memories of time spent together playing cards, games, and just laughing. Glenn loved being with family and friends – it brought him true joy.
The family has requested that in lieu of flowers, a donation be sent to your local food bank, The Heart & Stroke Association or the Refugee Community Kitchen. A private service will be held at Fischer’s Funeral Services & Cremation in Salmon Arm. A celebration of Glenn’s life will be announced at a later date.

  2. Our dear friend Glen Poloway and deepest condolences to his lovely wife Valerie and their children we will miss Glen dearly he was such a pleasant always inviting human soul to so many. We were privileged to be their neighbours in Cochrane . I still remember the day they moved in so young they were and full of life excited and busy with the moving . I asked them if we could have some off their moving boxes and without hesitation they gave us them just to fine days maybe weeks later we were using them I came across a clock radio still in one that belonged to them and brought it over to them, I can still see Glen laughing and saying that was a wedding gift and years later we talked and laughed about the radio left in the box . We miss you friend and will embrace Valerie and your children as part off our family forever. XXOO
