LAMSON, Harold ‘Glenn’
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Harold ‘Glenn’ Lamson
on June 2, 2018 at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital surrounded by his loving
family after a long battle with cancer. Glenn was born in Sydney to the late Robert
and Eileen (Cuff) Lamson.
Glenn worked a lot of jobs over the years, travelling and meeting new people.
Glenn was an avid hunter and fisherman, he loved doing anything that would put
a smile on someone’s face.
Glenn had been involved in a lot of organizations over the years. His biggest
accomplishment has been the annual trout fishing derby. As he’s been known to
say, “nothing beats seeing how happy a child is after catching their first fish”.
He leaves behind his loving wife of 38 years, Christine Lamson (Tibert); beautiful
daughter, Brenda Lamson and handsome grandson, Lucas; brothers, Donnie
(Shirley) Lamson of Alberta and John ‘Wayne’ Lamson of Sydney; sisters, Ann
Lamson (Felix) of Sydney, Kathy (David) Keeping of Sydney, Debbie MacNeil of
Sydney and Deloris (Alex) Lee of Glace Bay, as well as many nieces and nephews.
Besides his parents, Glenn is predeceased by brother, Douglas, and brother-in-
law, Russel MacNeil.
