Robert Glass Obituary
Glass, Robert
69, of Tempe, Az passed away on October 12, 2016. It is with great love and laughter that we continue to celebrate the life of Robert "Bob" Preston Glass, who successfully completed his journey here on October 12, 2016. His journey began on July 16, 1947 in Enterprise, Or, the son of Robert Eugene Glass and Lavone Laura Dunbar who he has now reunited with. Bob proudly served our country in Vietnam in 1966-67, as part of the Army's 1st Cavalry Division. A few years after returning, and after a long 17 day courtship, he married his loving wife and best friend of 43 years, Carole Ann Jennings. Bob and Carole had two daughters, Shannon Hakes and Andrea Glass. Bob's journey was enriched when he welcomed his son-in-law Steve Hakes into the family and further blessed by his only grandson, Sean Hakes. Bob's travels touched so many lives as was shown in the weeks leading up to this final trip. Bob will continue to celebrate life's moments with those mentioned and also with his brothers Pat Eblen, Curtis Glass, Alan Rainey, Tyler Glass, sister Megan Montero, and step-mother Karen Glass. We had a celebration of life while Bob was living so he could enjoy all the love and memories people had to share, so we ask that friends and family continue to do the same and celebrate each other's lives during the living years. If you would like to make a contribution, please send flowers to the VA Oncology floor and thank a veteran for their service to our country, as they are still battling cancer.
