With heavy hearts the family of Oswald (Ozzie) McGlashing announces his passing on Thursday, January 11, 2024 at The Moncton Hospital with his family by his side. Ozzie was born in Cape Tormentine, New Brunswick on September 1, 1935.

Ozzie will be dearly missed and remembered by his wife of 62 years Mary McGlashing, daughter Sandra (Jeff) Vroom, sons: Paul (Natalie) MacGlashing, David (Elise) MacGlashing, grandchildren: Matthew (MacKenzie), Jonathan, Silas (Hailey), Jonah, Anna (Cory), Maggie, Emmet, Sawyer, Cooper, great-grandchild Adeline and his many nieces and nephews.

Aside from his parents, Oswald was predeceased by his nine siblings.

Ozzie was a wonderful and loving husband, grandfather, and great grandfather. He had a very special relationship with each of his grandchildren. His quiet faith in God made him a man of integrity and a rock that everyone around him loved and leaned on. 

Ozzie loved spending his summers at his cottage in Cape Tormentine, fishing mackerel off the wharf, gardening, four wheeling and spending time with his family. 

Ozzie loved sports and played basketball, hockey, golf, coached softball and was an avid bowler. Over the years, he enjoyed watching his children and grandchildren at their many sporting events. Ozzie loved the outdoors and spent many winters snowmobiling and hunting. 

During his career, Ozzie was the Vice President of APM Automotive. He dedicated 39 years with the company. He and Mary enjoyed many business trips around the world with his colleagues. Upon his retirement, he and Mary spent many winters in Florida and Myrtle Beach with family and friends.

His family will be receiving relatives and friends at Cobb’s Funeral Home and Cremation Center, 330 Whitepine Rd. Riverview (869-2007) on Saturday, January 20, 2024 from 1 - 4pm. The family will be having a private graveside service in the spring at Fair Haven Cemetery. Donations in his memory may be made to Friends of The Moncton Hospital or St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, Moncton.

A special thank you to Dr. Anthony, Dr. Burton, and all the doctors, staff and volunteers of The Moncton Hospital for their care and support of Ozzie during his time there. It was greatly appreciated.
