Willard Carlos Glasgow
Willard Carlos Glasgow, 61, of Salisbury died Thursday, July 27, 2006, at the family farm in Fruitland.
Born in Salisbury, he was the son of the late Fred Hetch Glasgow and Georgia Evelyn Beauchamp Glasgow.
He had a lifetime interest in farming and was also a retired can line mechanic after 36 years with the former Crown Cork and Seal in Fruitland. He was a 1962 graduate of Wicomico High School; a member of the Elks and NRA; a lifetime member of the Red Mens Lodge; and a former volunteer with the Fruitland Fire Department. He was known for his hunting exploits, his love of horses and for his pig roasts, where many friends enjoyed the results of his "secret" pig sauce. One of his greatest joys was the love he had for his family.
He is survived by Alice Paige Glasgow, whom he married April 17, 1964, in Snow Hill; two children, Wade Scott Glasgow and Jay Glen Glasgow, both of Fruitland, a sister, Betsy Wilkins of Salisbury; and three brothers, Russell Glasgow and Frederick Wayne Glasgow, both of Salisbury, and Alfred Glasgow of Fruitland.
A Celebration of Life service will be held Saturday at 3 p.m. at the Red Mens Lodge in Fruitland with his best friend, John Walston, officiating.
A portion of the obituary, as it appeared —
Mr. Glasgow was blind in his right eye. At age 16, he suffered a splinter in his eye while working at his Dad's sawmill. (When asked to look at something, he would always say, "Three eyes are better than two" !)
