Charles Glancy understood what was important in life. Raised on a farm in Indiana, he learned at an early age that hard work, honesty, and integrity were paramount to a life well-lived. Among these strong values was a spirited generosity - unassuming and modest. Charles preferred laughter to tears and was always ready with a wink, a whistle, a song, a smile or a quick witted remark to lighten the mood.
After graduating from Roll High School he continued his education at Ball State University where he met Anna Jeffers. Starting his career in engineering at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base before being transferred to NASA where he was an integral part of history until he retired. He gave generously of his time to the AAU for over 40 years; spreading his compassion all over the country.
Charles was a loving husband to the late Ann Glancy; together they raised 4 daughters: Liz (Carey) Stapleton, Lois (Frank) Palermo, Charlese (Mike) Seyler, and Trucynda (Bruce) Hawkins. Through these girls, your 10 grandchildren,three great-grandchildren your siblings, your seemingly innumerable nieces and nephews the love of the Glancy clan reaches all over the world.
Charles extended this reach when he met Joan, his wife he now leaves behind. Their 21 years of marriage was filled with that same love and compassion, also extending the family: Brian (Kathy) Parker and Kim Parker, three more grandchildren and one great-granddaughter.
