Nate Glover

March 25, 1982 - January 15, 2024

Devoted husband. Beloved son. Root beer enthusiast. Nathan Glover was 100 different things to hundreds of people, but they will all say the same things: he was honest, genuine, and one-of-a-kind.

On January 15th, 2024, at the age of 41, Nate took his last breath with his wife by his side. He had been in the midst of treatment for a nearly eight-year battle with rectal cancer. He then developed a septic infection that led to stroke complications he was unfortunately unable to overcome.

Nate didn’t need a cancer diagnosis to start living his life to its fullest. He was always an “up for anything” guy, eager to have fun and try something new. 

His early twenties were spent touring with bands across North America as a merch guy, forging new connections everywhere he went. After a couple of brief stints in Toronto, his hometown of Winnipeg drew him back to stay where he and his wife built their life together.

He collected vinyl records, comic books, and tattoos, regularly made nerdy references to Lord of the Rings and Star Wars, and loved a good dad joke. As a sports fanatic, there was always a game on the tv and he even started skateboarding again when he turned 40 after a (very) long hiatus.

Nate was always exactly himself and rarely had an unkind word to say about anyone. You were considered a friend from the moment he met you and he often went out of his way to support those he cared about. He was always happy to help with landscaping projects, loved to show up to see his friends’ bands, and regularly bought from their businesses. 

Nate’s memory will live on forever with his wife Emily, mother Lois (Bruce) Greenhill, father Gary (Donna) Glover, brother Adam (Jennea) Glover, cousins, aunties, uncles, in-laws and a far-reaching network of friends who were his chosen family. 

“In sorrow we must go, but not in despair. Behold! we are not bound forever to the circles of the world, and beyond them is more than memory.” 

-J.R.R Tolkien, The Tale of Aragorn and Arwen, Appendices from Lord of the Rings

An open house Celebration of Life will be held on March 16, 2024 at The Park Theatre in Winnipeg from 12pm - 3pm with tributes to Nate starting around 1pm. 

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the CancerCare Manitoba Foundation in Nate’s honour.

I'm so sorry, Emily. I only had the pleasure of meeting Nate a few times, but his impression was impactful. I'm so sorry.

Thank you for setting this up Emily. I love you Nate & I will never forget your kind & gentle nature whilst still being the fun / funny hardcore punk legend we all love. You were kind & included me from the moment we met & were one of the very few who kept in touch after my stint in Canada. We talked about you someday coming down, learning how to surf & both getting back into skateboarding in our late 30's haha. You are the true embodiment of being young at heart. He never took anything for granted. I know you fought hard Nate but you lived a full life & saw & did things most people only dream of. I wish you were still with us to continue on your adventures in life. I will love & miss you forever. 

Love always, James Borg ( aka aussie james aka jimmy james ) ❤️ ⚘️❤️⚘️
