Robert Elroy "Roy" Glasgow

1937 - 2014


Early Life: Roy was born to Daniel Robert "Dan" and Lucille Thelma Burns Glasgow on March 24, 1937, in Salida, Colorado. He and his siblings attended schools in Grand Junction, Colorado. His early family life in Grand Junction was that of a typical family struggling to make ends meet. His family of eight loved their outings of trout fishing and picnicking in the mountains. Roy especially loved to deer hunt with his stepfather, Bill DeLong. They were expert deer and elk hunters which helped feed their family for the whole year.

Life's Work | Service | Interests: Following graduation from Grand Junction High in 1955, he went to work for Monarch Airlines. There he learned all about airplanes, including taking flying lessons. Roy married Carolyn Mary Green in Grand Junction and after they were transferred to Santa Fe, New Mexico, with Frontier Airlines, they had a son, Scott Alan Glasgow. They moved to El Paso, Texas, and shortly afterwards, Roy and Carolyn divorced.

❦ Roy then married Sandra Kaye Bates and from that union, Roberta Denise Glasgow was born. Roy lived and worked in El Paso for forty years. He retired from Continental and Frontier Airlines after many years of work with both firms.

❦ Roy was an expert marksman. He owned many guns and was taught at an early age to respect them. He was a proud life member of the NRA. Roy had many friends in El Paso and continued to live there until his health problems were such that his son, Scott, moved him to Provo, Utah, in early 2009. Roy loved living in Provo, Utah, with his son's family nearby. Roy truly loved his grandchildren. Seeing his family excel in high school sports, Olympic style weightlifting and other physical activities, brought such happiness to his life. He was so very proud of his son's and grandchildren's many accomplishments. Roy's happiest day each week was Sunday; he loved and looked forward to Sunday dinner at their home.

❦ Shortly after moving to Utah, Roy joined The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and it changed his life. He was so happy in his faith that he felt compelled to share its teachings with most everyone he met. Robert Elroy "Roy" Glasgow, of Provo, Utah, passed away at home on Saturday, February 1, 2014. He was 76.

Survived By: His son, Scott Alan Glasgow and his wife, Julie, and their five children: Cherie Gallagher, Michelle Kemp, Robert Scott Glasgow, Danielle Carolyn Glasgow and Nicole Julianne Glasgow; his daughter, Roberta Denise Glasgow; and his sisters: Betty Lateano, Barbara Kipp and Beverly Bennett.

Preceded In Death By: His parents; sister, Dannette Gross; brother, Billy DeLong.
