LINNEN; Gregory Donald
May 17, 1954 – November 20, 2015
Gregory Linnen, aged 61, passed away, November 20, 2015 at his home surrounded by his loving family after a courageous battle with cancer. Greg was the beloved husband to Jane for 35 years, and a beloved father to Melissa (Carl), Stephanie (Travis) & David. He leaves behind his mother Amelia, brother Dennis (Dianne) & family, sisters Shelley (Leo) & family, Janice (Albert) & family, aunt, uncle, cousins, relatives & many, many friends.
Greg lived life to the fullest and never complained or had a negative thing to say about anyone. He always had a smile on his face. He was a happy, kind, gentle, caring, unselfish, patient man with a positive outlook on life. Greg’s career started with the CNR many years ago as an electrician. He then was employed with BCBC & over the years excelled to be an operations superintendent with WSI. In between he had his own company, Peninsula Electrical Services. He was a very hard worker, & well respected by his peers. Greg had a passion for the ocean. For 30 years he spent time with the family on the boat, cruising the Gulf Islands, Desolation Sound & San Juan Islands. Over the years he made many good friends & had endless memories. The Pender house was where he & his wife spent a lot of time enjoying the slower pace of life “Pender Time” with all their close friends. He & wife Jane did a lot of travelling to many exotic & tropical places. Greg will be truly missed and we’ll always cherish all the beautiful memories. Love you forever. A celebration of Life will be held at Victory Memorial Centre 14831 28th Ave Surrey, BC on December 4th at 2pm. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the B.C Cancer Foundation.
