    My condolences to the Ormsby family.
    My relationship with Glen was more business than a close personal friend but Dad and I both considered him a friend.
    His kind, hardworking, honest, friendly attitude made many friends over his lifetime in Meaford.
    Rest in peace Glen
    Rob Gardner and the late Tony Gardner
