Bob was born on July 10, 1917 in the Rhein district, the first son of James and Agnes Glass. Bob attended school at Clyde and later Shamrock and began farming at an early age, on his own land, two miles east of his parent's farm. He met Lizzie Stricker and in 1945 they were united in marriage. They were blessed with two daughters, Muriel and Gladys. Bob loved the farming life, seeing the new born calves in the spring, the bountiful fields of grain, the smell of the new cut hay, the companionship of a faithful dog and the many cats that called his barn home. In 1973, Bob lost his beloved Lizzie, and his life became very lonely, so he began getting together with neighbours to play cards. This was how he met May Reid, they were married on June 8, 1974 and they took up residence on a small acreage in the Dunleath district. Bob and May had a great passion for gardening, their flowers and vegetables won many awards at the horticultural shows, they were both active members of the Yorkton Horticultural Club. Bob loved to play cards and was ready at any time of the day for a challenging game with family, friends or neighbours. Bob was predeceased by his first wife, Lizzie in 1973; his Mother in 1978; his Father in 1986; his brother, George in 1994; his brother-in-law, Donald Morrison in 1991 and his daughter, Muriel in 2004.
