Obituary

MOORE, Glyn

"On the morning of Monday March 8, 2021, on his 70th Birthday, Glyn Moore finished his last squat. Glyn is survived by Marlene, his loving wife of 25 years, dear father of Nicole (Andy) and Andrea. Beloved “Grandad” to Corey and Ella. Youngest brother to Barry and predeceased by John (Elaine). Brother-in-law of William (Laura) and Catherine. Uncle of Kevin (Angie), Stephen and Dean (Caroline), LeeAnn (Steve) and Calvin. Great Uncle of Brennan, and son-in-law to Jean Manley. Glyn will be profoundly missed by Steve Magistrale who considered Glyn his mentor, best friend and father-figure. Predeceased by parents Percy and Mary. Glyn was proudly born and raised in North Wales and immigrated to Canada in 1977. He settled in St. Catharines, working many years as a welder for General Motors where he made many life-long friends including Wayne, Rob, Hans and Vern. He remained close with his childhood friends Ian and Roy. A true powerlifting competitor and legend, Glyn passed away the way he had always joked about, with a good lift under his belt and still wearing his lifting gear. To those that knew him, the name Glyn Moore is synonymous with powerlifting, his raw passion for the sport obvious in everything he did. He contributed endlessly as a competitor, meet director, volunteer, official, coach, mentor, promotor, and recruiter, not to mention his many formulas, custom equipment, and his famous quick wit. He loved to reminisce about good times with friends and was the first to remind everyone of a friend or fellow lifter’s achievements. He had a memory to be envied, remembering records, dates, people, and could tell you exactly where he was and what he was doing when just about any song came out. With a boyish grin and Welsh music in his blood, he could always be heard humming or singing a tune. Glyn will never know how many lives he touched, and he will be dearly missed by all who knew him. The family has asked that if anyone is so moved, they may wish to make a donation to the Heart and Stroke Foundation in Glyn's memory."
In honouring Glyn’s wishes cremation has taken place. Arrangements entrusted to Considerate Cremation & Burial Services, 26 Nihan Drive, St. Catharines (between Lake Street & Scott Street), 289-362-1144. Online condolences may be made at CCBSCares.ca

I met Glyn while working at GM. Someone sent him to see me about powerlifting, just another person who might last a month training for powerlifting. How wrong I was. He trained so hard. I got him to go to Steel City Powerlifting Club in Hamilton to meet Bill Jamison, National Coach and the man who started powerlifting in Canada. The training centre is by invitation only. he met the level few new lifters do not always have. I coached him at his first powerlifting meet. He was hooked, no turning back. He went on to win and set records. He was at Steel City getting ready for a powerlifting competition. His final deadlift of the workout heavy, he was using a sumo stance, wide plate to plate, got the big lift and his foot slipped when he put the bar down crushing his toes. He sat down we got his belt off. I asked him if he was ok he said yes. I asked him if he wanted to take that weight again, he liked that called me some nasty names. Two weeks later he lived at the meet, lifted well with broken toes. some would say that’s crazy, some would be proud of him I was proud of him and will miss him.

We are saddened about learning of Glynns passing. He was such a nice guy and we remember his friendship when his daughter Andrea and our daughter Katy competed together in gymnastics. We'll always recall his for love for for power lifting and his skill in roasting a pig and fondness for sitting around the pool and enjoying everyone's presence. RIP our friend.
