Dale Robert Glass, Sr., 87, passed away peacefully in his sleep surrounded by family at his home near Grantsville, MD, on Monday, March 30, 2020. 

Born December 14, 1932, in the Cove, he was the son of the late Ernest and Ruth (Kolbfleisch) Glass. He was also preceded in death by brothers, Earl and Gerald.

Dale graduated from Accident High School in 1949, and for forty years worked for the Maryland State Highway Administration inspecting road construction as an Area Engineer. He had varied interests, for the early part of his life collecting, restoring, and showing antique cars. He was also a lifetime hunter. After retirement Dale enjoyed traveling throughout the United States with his wife of 67 years, Sara Jean (Meyers) Glass in their motor home.

Along with his wife, he leaves behind two sons, Dale Jr. (Karen) and Marvin (Marilyn); one daughter, Sharon; seven grandchildren of whom he was very proud; one great-grandchild; one step great-grandchild; one brother, Elwood (Janet); one sister-in law, Grace; and numerous nieces and nephews.

A private graveside service will be held for members of the immediate family only, with a memorial service to be named at a later date.
