He was born on November 11, 1940 in Louisville, Kentucky, to the late Elmer Glaser and the late Mathilda "Tillie" Glaser. He proudly served in the United States Army from 1959-1961. An extraordinary man with a giving nature, he was a loyal friend and an extroverted people person who was quick to lend a hand.
