Also surviving are two brothers, Howard Glaspell and his wife Willa of Fairmont, and Earl Glaspell of Bridgeport; two sisters, Annabelle Hayhurst and her husband Sonny of Idamay, and Betty Saunders and her husband Bill of Bridgeport; as well as several nieces and nephews.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his first wife, Eleanor “Sue” Glaspell; four brothers, Silas Glaspell, James “Jim” Glaspell, Charles “Bud” Glaspell and Harvey “June” Glaspell; two sisters, Mary Ruth in infancy and Ruby Furbee; and a sister-in-law, Doris Glaspell.
