Windsor architect Jerry Glos, member of Windsor 1918 passes

GLOS, Jerry
90 years young, actively working until called to heaven, hung up his hard hat and turned off his drafting-table lamp for the last time on January 28, 2018. No doubt there will be some ethereal design changes to follow. Jerry was co-founder and senior architect of Glos Associates Inc. Jerry earned his Bachelor of Architecture degree from McGill University. He amassed over 50 years of architectural design experience continuing to work right to the end. He epitomized the adage, “You have to love what you do” and he surely did so, with a passion. A licenced architect, Jerry was a member of the Ontario Association of Architects and the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada. A few of his many local projects include the GM Trim Plant, The Adie Knox Herman Memorial Recreation Complex, The Windsor Star printing facility and the Windsor Transit Terminal. He was the recipient of multiple civic design awards for design excellence, including the Premier’s Award for Accessibility for the All Saints Church renovation in 1985 and two Windsor Construction Association awards of Merit including the 2011 award for Hospitality Institutions. Jerry was honoured as a “Fellow” at the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada Convocation in Calgary in June 2014. His unwavering commitment to his community also led him to win the Charles Clark Award in recognition of his countless volunteer contributions to the University of Windsor. His other passion was his family. Jerry took his children and grandchildren on many travel adventures, most recently over New Years on a Caribbean Cruise. He is survived by his loving wife of 62 years, Geraldine, leaving her with many beautiful memories and a closet full of snazzy men’s clothes. Jerry provided his most fortunate children Martha (John) Burrows and Tim (Krista) Glos with a life that most could only dream of. He was a role model, a cheerleader, a man of deep Christian faith and an inspiration to his most cherished grandchildren McKenzie and Addie Burrows, Julia (fiancé Michael Knight), Amanda, Isaac and Eric Glos. As a member of many Boards and Committees during his lifetime, the one closest to his heart was CEO, CFO and driver of the Boys Club, which was simply him and his three grandsons. Many serious decisions were made at meetings usually held at Timmys where the CFO was responsible for the refreshments. Jerry has joined his brothers Carl, Martin, David and John on the new job site and is survived by one sister Mary (late Ed) Rishaw and many nieces and nephews. If you so desire donations to Rotary Club of Windsor 1918 or Banwell Community Church would be appreciated by the family. Memorial Visiting Friday 3-5 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. at
3260 Dougall Ave. South Windsor
On Saturday family and friends are invited to meet at Banwell Community Church (2400 Banwell Rd., Windsor, ON N8P1X9) at 10:30 a.m. for further visitation until funeral service at 11:30 a.m. Share memories, photos or make a donation at

It’s Peace and Conflict Prevention/Resolution month in February

As a native of the Windsor area, I graduated from the University of Windsor and shortly afterwards worked in the local community for various non-profits.  I soon realized I wanted to work at the grass roots level working towards economically sustainable communities.  I began looking into programs that tied in my other passion: heritage.  I soon came across Rotary Global Grants and became a recipient under the Economic and Community Development (ECD) field.  With this grant I was able to travel to Rome to complete a Masters program in Sustainable Cultural Heritage.  I focused my studies, internship and thesis towards working with underserved local communities in ECD.  My internship was spent at a conservation lab which works closely with local communities to involve communities in the sustainable management of their heritage.  For my thesis I worked with two communities, observing their experiences and perspectives of the heritage they are surrounded by and the tourism that results from it.  My work emphasized how important community perspective and involvement is in economically sustainable heritage which works for the local community.

All of this would not have been possible without the support of the Rotary Club of Windsor (1918) and District 6400.  I would like to thank Rotary for this amazing opportunity and let them know their support over the past two years is greatly appreciated.   I am available to speak at clubs and meetings; my contact information is
