In Memory of Dale H. Glasscock
November 26, 1923 - June 15, 2017
Dale Harvey Glasscock, 93, long-term resident of Spooner, Wisconsin died on Thursday June 15, 2017 at Intermountain Medical Center in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Dale was born on November 26, 1923 in Stuart, Iowa to Harvey and Lottie “Grace” (Herrick) Glasscock. Dale and his lovely wife Genevieve (Woodley) were married for 62 happy years and were a powerful example of faithful love and devotion to each other. Dale and Genny had three children whom they taught unconditional love.
Dale served in the army in WWII from August 20, 1943 to November 8, 1945. He earned a purple heart at the invasion of Anzio beach in Italy and was part of a second invasion force in southern France. Dale worked as a civilian for the U.S. Department of Defense, overseeing the contracts with Honeywell and other military suppliers.
Dale was a family man, and would do anything to support his wife and children. No matter what happened we always knew he would welcome us with open arms and comfort. He was a kind man who had a warm welcoming smile and whom everyone loved. He loved to tease and always had people laughing. He also loved to volunteer to be the taste tester when Genny baked or made candy. He did like his sweets!
Dale built three homes for Genny and himself, the last one overlooking Spooner Lake. He also enjoyed woodworking and fishing. He was deeply loved by his wife, children, grandchildren, brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews, extended family and many friends. He will be missed by all of us. It is comforting to know he is in heaven dancing with Genny again.
He is survived by his sister Maxine Ellis, children Gary (Amy) Glasscock and Rita (John) Fox, 7 grandchildren, 6 great-grandchildren, and 2 great-great-grandchildren. He is preceded in death by his parents; his wife, Genevieve; 2 sisters (Velma Rudin and Freda White) and 2 brothers (Gerald Glasscock and Kenneth Glasscock); and his son Kenneth Dale Glasscock.
A celebration of Dale’s life will be held at 11 am on Thursday, June 22, 2017 at United Methodist Church in Spooner, with Pastor Jack Starr officiating. He will be laid to rest with full military honors at 2 pm at the Northern Wisconsin Veterans Memorial Cemetery.
