He was a loving husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather who loved spending time with his family. He also enjoyed hunting, fishing, digging for ramps and watching his favorite television show, “The Dukes of Hazzard.”

He is survived by his loving wife of 18 years, Mary (Spencer) Glaspell; three sons, Roger Glaspell and his wife Catherine, Timothy Glaspell and his wife Judy, and Jacob “Jake” Glaspell, all of Boothsville; three daughters, Regina Roseberry of Boothsville, Susan D’Amico and her husband Frank of Folson, and Daisy Glaspell of Boothsville; eight grandchildren, Clarence Glaspell, Priscilla King, Sarah Anderson, Jackie Edgell, Gary Ketterman, Samantha Glaspell, Amber Glaspell and Mandy Glaspell; and two great-grandchildren, Bristal Ketterman and Kayle Edgell.

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.
