1935 ~ 2024 (age 88)

1935 ~ GLEN SITTER ~ 2024 Glen Carl Sitter of Kindersley, SK, passed away quietly on Tuesday, June 18th, 2024 at the age of 88 years. Glen was born on September 20, 1935 in a log cabin located between Turtle Lake and Bright Sands Lake; the next year his family moved to Kindersley and Glen lived there the rest of his life. Glen loved spending hours restoring and building custom vehicles and went to many car shows displaying his cars. He also loved building models, waterskiing, fishing, sitting in his favorite chair watching football and hockey, BBQing steaks, Sunday drives in the countryside with Lorraine, reading, and puzzle making. He loved sitting on his back patio on the acreage and having his daily nap in the sun on his swinging bench. Glen was married to Lorraine Sitter (Materi) for 67 years until Lorraine’s recent passing on March 31, 2024. Together they raised a beautiful family and made Kindersley their home. He is survived by his Brother, Ralph Sitter (Anne) and his Sisters, Nadine Locke (Lyle) and Elaine Schultz (Ron). His children: Daughters, Rhonda Coates, Rhelda Simon (Harvey), Shelley Conway (Nelson), Cheryl Abbey (Dave) and Son, Byron Sitter. And many grandchildren & great grandchildren: Stephen Conway [Michelle](Cora); Eric Conway [Emily] (Mia, Grace); Christina Welker (Sadie, Brantley); Britney Hanke [Travis] (Braelynn, Oaklin); Jennifer Baran [Michael] (Paxton, Liam, Evelynne); Amber Coates [Kevin] (Madison); Tricia Kuntz (Mathew, Abigail, Haley), Austin Abbey [Emily] and Luke Magnus Tengs (Abbey). Glen is predeceased by his Wife, Lorraine Sitter, his Daughter, Patricia Sitter, his Parents, Fred and Pearl Sitter and his Sisters, Freda Baker (Bruce), Gail Moreside, and Rose Schmidt (Norman). Glen was a loving, spirited and honest man who loved people, life and the outdoors. He was quick to make a joke and make people laugh. During high school he worked at several jobs and became a “jack of all trades”. When Glen graduated from high school, he started Sitter's Transport Ltd. in 1953. At that time, the company was a team of horses and a wagon. During the time that Glen’s business and family were growing, he was very involved in the community, and throughout his whole life. He was involved in the Chamber of Commerce Board for at least 20 years, the Town Council for 10 years, and with the Kinsmen Club for many years. He was the first “Lifetime Member” of the Kindersley Kinsmen Club. After his first retirement, he went back to work on the Highway Traffic Board as Chairman, for ten years. Once retired from there, he started volunteer work at the Kindersley Museum and has been there working in the office for the past 10 years at least. Recently he referred to the Museum as his “happy place”. During this time, Glen also sold Rainbow trailers for close to 20 years. Usually, every morning Glen could be found at the Museum and every afternoon at the mall for coffee with family and friends. Glen loved to visit and talk with everyone, reminiscing and laughing over old times. A Celebration of Life will be held on Friday, August 16, at 1:00 - 3:00 pm at the Kindersley Museum. A private Graveside Service for the family will be held later that day. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Kindersley Museum.
