GLASS - Henry B., 82, Salix, formerly of Mineral Point/New Germany, died September 3, 2020, at home, after a brief battle with esophageal cancer. Born March 15,1938 in East Freedom, son of David Henry and Martha Marcella (Shaw) Glass.

Preceded in death by parents, brother, David Bernard Glass; and sister, Marcia Daniel.

Survived by ex-wife Edna “Bink” (Eckenrode); daughter, Theresa A.

1958 South Fork-Croyle High School classmate. PFC Combat Engineer US Marine Corp, Camp Lejeune, North Carolina; 1956-1958. He was the hardworking owner of Henry B. Glass Oil Burner Heating Service, which he operated from 1969 to 2018. An avid Ranger Football fan, he attended games religiously with his brother Charlie. In his younger days he enjoyed drag racing at Pittsburgh Raceway Park and more recently found the slower pace of his bicycle relaxing. Our hearts are broken but take solace in knowing you no longer suffer in pain and now rest in the Lord’s peace. Honoring his request there will be no visitation or service; his body was donated to Humanity Gifts Registry for the advancement of science and learning.
