Glenn David Krip
Loving Son, Husband and Father

Glenn David Krip, age 45, suddenly and unexpectedly passed away on Monday, September 21, 2015 at the Victoria Hospital in Prince Albert. Glenn was born on April 22, 1970 in Prince Albert to David and Marjorie Krip. Glenn, along with his sister and brother was raised on the family farm north of Prince Albert. He married the love of his life, Jackie (Somers) on August 15, 1992. Together they had two beautiful daughters, Justine and Jamie.
