Gregory Eric Planer

December 24th 1964 – August 24th, 2014

Greg was locally known as a gentle mannered,

pony-tailed window cleaner who was comfortable on ladders.  

His first 7 years were spent in the Calgary area followed by another 7 years spent in Australia on the Gold Coast.  He returned to Canada at 15 to live in Prince George.  At 20 he required a serious back operation for damage caused in early childhood.  He overcame the surgeon’s prediction of a wheelchair at 40 by being so physical with We Do Windows.

He lived in Prince George and Slave Lake from age 15 to 26, then moved to Vancouver Island.  He met Shelley, his life partner at 26 in 1990.  Together they started We Do Windows, working very hard to create today’s 23 yr. old successful business.  

Greg quietly watched Shelley try new things, sometimes participating in them once being assured nothing bad would arise.  One of these adventures led him to the Oneness Blessing in 2011.

The cumulative affects of blessings inexorably changed him from a cautious introvert to a man who could see into the hearts of others.  His gift for gentle advice, his kindness and steadiness will be sorely missed by all those who benefitted from his sage words.

Greg passed gently and peacefully at home holding Shelley’s hand.
