Obituary for Lee "Gene" Glass

GLASS, Lee E. “Gene”

Lee Eugene “Gene” Glass, age 92 of Middleville entered the presence of his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on January 6, 2020 at his home in Middleville.

Gene was born September 18, 1927, in Chicago, Illinois the son of Stanley and Willie (Pruett) Glass. On June 28, 1952 he married the love of his life Velma Ayers, and they shared sixty-seven years together.
Gene was an individual that could do anything he set his mind to. He retired from Bradford White in 1990 after thirty-five years employment. He was an electrician by trade, but was a handy carpenter, plumber and mechanic; always ready to take on a new project, a jack of all trades. Golf, bowling and playing Euchre were a few of his favorite pastimes.

Gene was preceded in death by his mother, Willie Pruett, father, Stanley Glass, brothers, Harold Glass, Loyd Glass, James Glass, and granddaughter Tammy Miller. He is survived by his wife Velma Glass; children, Shirley Miller, Eugene (Barbara) Glass, Roberta (Robert) Taffee, and Karen Glass; eleven grandchildren and twenty great grandchildren.
