Thomas H. Glass, age 89 of Fort Atkinson, WI died unexpectedly at his home on Friday, October 5, 2018. He was born in Janesville on May 2, 1929, the son of the late Harold and Bessie (Ellis) Glass. Thomas joined the US Army on September 17, 1946 during his senior year of High School and later joined the US Air Force on January 17, 1951. He was Honorably discharged on January 28, 1955. Tom served during Army occupation of Japan during WW II. While in the Air Force, during the Korean War, Tom was stationed in Germany. After returning to the United States, Tom went to work for General Motors in Janesville, retiring as foreman in the paint department on May 1, 1988, after over 38 years of service. On June 15, 1963, he married Patricia Mae McDonald and together they had two children.
Tom has lived on Lake Koshkonong for over 55 years, an area he truly loved. He was an avid outdoors man, who enjoyed hunting, fishing and duck hunting. He especially enjoyed duck hunting trips to South Dakota with his son, nephews and brother. Tom was also an avid history buff, who could tell you everything about Lake Koshkonong, his family history, and the civil war. Tom was a very loving husband and father, who was supportive of everything his family did. He was a true gentleman, always holding his wife’s hand when ever they were together. Tom always encouraged and planned many family outings over the years. He looked forward to spending time with his children, grandchildren, and other extended family sharing stories and tales of years past.
He is survived by his wife of over 55 years: Patty Mae; and his two children: James (Susie) Glass of Laotto, IN and Jane (Joe) Glass-Waldron of Whitewater, WI; his grandchildren who he adored: Tommy (Shann) Schuette, Taylor Glass, Bailee Glass, and Lexi Ellis; great-grandson: Jaydn; and great-great grandson: Bryson.
