    We regret to advise of the death of Sergeant Glen Allen Dagley, CD (Ret’d) of Kanata ON at the Queensway Carleton Hospital in Ottawa on 26 March 2020 at the age of 62. Glen served with Mapping and Charting Establishment for some 36 years.

    Born in Bridgewater NS, Glen spent much of his childhood on the Dagley family homestead. A graduate of Hebbville Consolidated High School, Glen started his military career in the Militia in Halifax NS with 1 Field Regiment, Royal Canadian Artillery.

    In 1977 Glen transferred to the Regular Force with the Artillery. While posted with the Land Engineering Training Establishment in Ottawa, Glen remustered to a Geomatics Technician and was posted to Mapping and Charting Establishment in 1984.

    Glen was a natural in the pressroom and liked to deploy with the Field Print Troop. Glen was one of the first operators of the Mitsubishi printing press and was instrumental in training many others. He was one of a few who could perform the required maintenance to a variety of equipment and keep it operational.

    He was a Reprographics Supervisor in the Foundation Production Squadron when he retired at the rank of sergeant in 2006. Glen immediately began his civilian career at MCE in the Public Service as a EG-04 Geomatics Analyst and retired after serving with Mapping and Charting Establishment for 36 years.

    At Glen’s request, there will be no formal service. Funeral arrangements are private.  Cremation will take place followed by a celebration of life at the family home in Kanata that will be planned for the future. A private family internment will be held at the Dagley family cemetery in Nova Scotia at a later date. Donations in lieu of flowers can be made to the Queensway Carleton Hospital, or the Royal Canadian Legion. Online condolences can be sent to the funeral home. ​{khMar2020}
