It is with heavy hearts and profound sadness that we announce the passing of Glen Assoun. Glen passed away on June 14th, leaving behind cherished memories, a legacy of love and music, and an enduring fight for truth and justice.

Born on Nov 3rd 1955, Glen displayed an unwavering passion for music from an early age. The gentle strumming of a guitar became the soundtrack of his life, echoing his joys, sorrows, and the profound emotions he poured into his music.

Sadly, Glen’s life took an unexpected turn when he found himself wrongfully accused and convicted of a crime he did not commit. Despite maintaining his innocence with conviction, the system failed him, robbing him of his freedom for years and his family precious time. Throughout his unjust incarceration, his guitar became an emblem of resilience, a beacon of hope that carried him through dark and desolate times.

Glen faced the adversity with unimaginable strength and unwavering belief in his innocence. In the darkest of moments, he held fast to the hope that the “truth would set him free”.

Throughout the long years of wrongful imprisonment, Glen became a symbol of resilience and grace. He inspired countless individuals who championed his cause and rallied against the injustice he faced. His relentless pursuit of truth attracted the attention of renowned legal advocates and activists, who worked tirelessly to expose the miscarriage of justice.

Finally, after years of tireless efforts, the truth emerged, and Glen was exonerated of all charges. The world watched in awe as the wrongful shackles were lifted from his weary shoulders. And after all of those years, Glen was finally learning how to live once again. Spending time with his family and friends; including his four legged best friend, Sawyer. Also, as a car enthusiast, Glen enjoyed his drives on the open road.

Glen’s memory will be remembered and kept alive by his former spouse Margaret Assoun and their children James Brown, Glen Assoun (Lois Cross), Tanya Assoun and Amanda Assoun (Shannon Huckle). Grandchildren Alisha Cross, Patrick Cross, Jacob Cross, Jesse Brown, Lisa Brown, Presley Assoun, and Grayson Huckle. Brothers Kevin Assoun (Brenda), Kenneth Assoun and Sister Kim Ivany (Edward). And his dearest friend Rev. David Watt.

Glen is Predeceased by his Mother Helen O’Dea Assoun, Father Reginald Assoun, Stepfather Myles Furlong and his brothers
David, Ron, John, Louis and Jim.

Glen leaves behind a void that can never be filled. However, his legacy of love, perseverance, and the relentless pursuit of justice will forever guide them. As they mourn his loss, may they find solace in knowing that his spirit will forever watch over them, offering them strength and guidance.

May Glen’s soul rest in eternal peace. He will be deeply missed and forever remembered. Let us sing Glen back home.
