GLEN COSTON

July 7, 1980 – June 4, 2024

With heavy hearts, the family of Glen Coston wish to announce his passing on June 4, 2024.


Glen was predeceased by his parents, Ronald and Marjorie Coston, and by grandparents Roy and Martha Moore and Norman and Winnifred Coston. Glen leaves to mourn his sisters Lea, Kaitlynne and Karen. He is also survived by step-mother Joanna and step-siblings Rosalie and Andy. Uncles Wes (Sherry) and Jack (Sharon) are also left to mourn his passing.


From an early age, Glen demonstrated a natural talent for drawing and other written arts. He worked diligently at his craft over time, and was a highly respected street artist in recent years. Glen formed amazing friendships through his art, perhaps the most important of which were his N.H.C. friends. Glen found a home with this group of guys who understood not only his art, but what he was trying to express through it. The boys in N.H.C. were like brothers to him, and he cultivated a special relationship with each of them.


In addition to street art, Glen was a life-long Iron Maiden fan, having had the opportunity to travel to concerts in several different out of town locations. When he wasn’t chasing Iron Maiden around the country, Glen enjoyed skateboarding and fishing, but above all he enjoyed being around friends.


When closer to home, Glen enjoyed watching various programs of interest on YouTube or other streaming sites. Regardless of what he was watching or what he was doing, he always made time to watch the movie Clue with sister Lea – the two having watched that movie over 200 times together. Unfortunately for those in the area, Glen would often engage Lea in a recitation of the movie line by line – until everyone else took shelter elsewhere. “Not Clue again!”


In addition to his friends in the art world, Glen was fortunate to have many other special people in his life. There were many memorable times spent with best friend Amber, neighbour, friend and confidant Darcy, and many, many others. It was often difficult to go out in public with Glen and not have him run into a good friend he hadn’t seen in awhile. He seemed to know almost everyone. We will miss him terribly.


The family is incredibly grateful for the assistance provided to Glen by many organizations within Winnipeg, with special thanks to Bruce Oake Recovery Center.


A celebration of his life will be held on Tuesday, June 25, 2024 at Garden City Community Center 725 Kingsbury Avenue in Winnipeg. Please join us any time between 7 pm – 10 pm. There will be a short service at approximately 7:30 p.m., with the remainder of the evening being a come and go reception. Please feel free to attend after the ceremony if you prefer.


In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to Bruce Oake Recovery Centre, or any other preferred charity.

We were friends around high school but lost touch.

Glen was a happy upbeat guy every time we ran into each other afterwards. A sad loss as I'm sure he still made a positive impact to those around him.

We are incredibly sorry for another tough loss for you and your family. The one time I met Glen, he seemed shy, silly and sweet and it was absolutely clear to see the love between the 4 of you. I conside myself fortunate to have met him.
