Gerald "Gary" Lee Glass

July 31, 1943 — December 10, 2023

Whitman

 

Whitman, NE- Gerald “Gary” Glass, Sr age 80 of Whitman, NE died Sunday, December 10, 2023, at his home in Whitman.

Gerald Lee Glass was born on July 31, 1943, in Omaha, NE to Willard Hicks and Ena Margaret (Call) Glass. Gary attended his early years at the Whitman School and graduated from Hyannis in 1962.

After graduation, Gary traveled the country working various jobs at gas stations and in the road departments. He returned to Whitman in the early 1990s to care for his parents.

 Gary had the rural mail route for several years. He loved animals, especially dogs, and always had a treat for the pets on his route.

Gary loved old cars and going to car shows, working on his camera, and for a time riding his Harley Davidson, making a few wild trips to Sturgis.

He loved war history and had a collection of artifacts and books/movies from the Civil War, WWI, WWII, and Vietnam.

Gary was a long-time member of the NRA and the Alliance Rifle Club. He loved guns, and ammo, and spent a lot of time reloading ammo, target practicing, and sighting in his guns.

Gary kept the community beautiful, mowing lawns and helping care for the Whitman Community Club, Cemetery, and the Whitman Church. I don’t think Gary realized how much he meant to the people in the community and how much we miss him.

Gerald was preceded in death by his parents, a son Gerald “Butch” Glass, Jr., a stepson Wayne Glass, and by his sister Gloria.

There will be no services held and Gary’s remains will be buried in the Whitman Cemetery.

Govier Brothers Mortuary of Mullen is handling the arrangements.  www.govierbrothers.com
