Glenn Maxwell Veinot
Born in the Forties on February 23, 1949, Glenn was the eldest son of 7 children to the late Maxwell Samuel Veinot and Shirley Avis Veinot (Gates), from New Ross, N.S. Glenn is also predeceased by his brother, Ian Veinot from Harriston, NS.
He fought hard with his second battle of cancer at home, until his final few days where he died peacefully with his immediate family by his side at South Shore Regional Hospital.
For those of you who knew Glenn, knew of his love and passion for cars, not just any car… it had to be Mopar. The love passed down starting from his Dad that we knew it had to be blood driven. As both of Glenn’s children, Stephen and Ronda share the same love, driving Mopar themselves. It was instilled in them, ‘cause the mention of any other vehicle, he would give you ‘the look’, the slight ‘eye roll’, ‘smirk’, followed with the head shake and the infamous argument. Oh, and lets not forget the ol’ pointing of the finger.
With Glenn’s love of cars, he helped establish the Graves Island Show and Shine. Countless hours were spent with Robert Stevens, Robert Graves and many more talking cars, sharing stories, mechanical builds/repairs and everything else in between.
Glenn was normally a quiet man on the outside but his mind never stopped… you learned quickly not to take his appeared easiness and quietness as a way to get away from anything, cause there’s nothing better then his love for a great debate. He loved to discuss and challenge anyone with a listening ear and set of lips. Debates could be anything, including worlds problems, what he felt was the truth and anything political and this man loved politics. He was never shy to express which side of the campaign you should be on, no matter what voting age you were, he’d let you know quite quickly, that you , should also stand on that same side.
Glenn had a great nature about him, always willing to drive you anywhere’s, even at 4 am, he’d be there. He loved taking care of his well manicured yard, shined up cars, hanging at Tim Horton’s, a good car burnout and his little dog, Mojo. Glenn was a member of his local Legion, 4 wheeler club and self imposed political advocate.
Glenn is survived by his wife, Anne Veinot (Smith) of East Chester, NS; his son, Stephen Veinot (Angela Lambert) of Chester Basin, NS; his daughter, Ronda Veinot (Timothy Young) of Chester/Bridgewater, NS. Grandchildren, Justin Veinot, Briana Veinot & Gaven Burgoyne; great grandchild, Jagger. His many nieces and nephews.
