Statement by Mayor Fred Eisenberger on the passing of Glen Peace

HAMILTON, ON - It is with sadness we learned of the passing of former City Manager and Hamilton Fire Chief, Glen Peace.

Glen served as chief administrative officer and city manager for the City of Hamilton as well as general manager of emergency services and acting general manager of community services. From 1971 to 1996, Glen was a firefighter and served as fire chief in both Burlington and Hamilton. Glen was also the Association of Municipalities of Ontario representative for the Provincial Land Ambulance Review.

As an active member of his community, Glen sat on the campaign board of directors for the United Way Burlington and Greater Hamilton and served on the board of directors for St. Joseph's Healthcare.

“I had the pleasure of working with Glen when he was fire chief and during my time as mayor when he was our city manager. Without fail he was a dedicated civil servant concerned with the well-being of those he led and the community at large. By all accounts he was an excellent Justice of the Peace and will be deeply missed. My sincere condolences to Glen’s family and loved ones on his passing.” - Mayor Fred Eisenberger

The flags at Hamilton Fire Stations will be lowered to half-mast for three days in Glen’s honour beginning Monday, January 11, 2021.
