Thomas Austin Glotfelty

May 31, 1966 ~ August 16, 2019 (age 53)

Thomas Austin “Tommy” Glotfelty, Jr., 53, went to be with his LORD and Saviour Jesus Christ, on Friday, August 16, 2019, at his home.

Born May 31, 1966, in Oakland, MD, he was the son of the late Thomas Austin and Barbara (Smith) Glotfelty. He was also preceded in death by his uncle, Dwight Glotfelty.

Tommy was cared for in his home for fifty years by his parents, and later in years by personal care staff. He loved to be free to roam around the house and on his beloved porch and porch swings. After some time in a nursing home, Tommy spent the last 21 months of his life in an Appalachian Crossroads residence, where his care staff learned to love and appreciate him for his gentle spirit and unique ways.

He is survived by his sister, Rebecca Glotfelty; stepmother, Esther Glotfelty; an uncle, Cecil “Cotty” Glotfelty and wife, Alma, all of Oakland, MD; numerous cousins.
