  • Rest in Peace, Bob Glasscock

    I'm sick to my stomach right now. I've been wondering where our friend and assistant moderator Bob Glasscock has been lately. His last post was 11-06-2012 at 07:46 AM. He and I had a pretty active email discussion about upcoming SDC elections, and I thought it strange that the email visits ceased about the same time. I attempted to call him a few minutes ago, and his phone has been disconnected. So, I goggled him, and found this:

    Report: Fatal crash came at landing

    A Lubbock man was trying to land his airplane at an Oklahoma airport when it crashed, according to a preliminary report on the accident.
    Robert Edgar Glasscock, 62, was killed when his Piper Cherokee crashed during a second attempt to land at the Anadarko Municipal Airport Nov. 6.

    Glasscock took off, climbed and started to circle the airport for a second attempt. According to the NTSB report, as Glasscock turned for the runway, the airplane went into an extreme bank and suddenly went down.

    I have tried to find an obit online, but have had no luck.

    I remember the news accounts of the accident, but did not make the connection.

    I pray Bob is OK, and reports in.

        The dead pilot is not related to Robert W. Glasscock of Lubbock, who is the same age.

            I just sent an email to Bob's account... maybe someone is monitoring it, and will respond.

            Edit:

            No posts for days from a normally very active forum participant... email and private message discussions left unanswered... a much too relative/timely news article...phone disconnected... email rejected.

            Reality sucks.

            Never met you, Bob, but we had a friendship, nonetheless.

            RIP, friend... you are one of the nice guys!

              OMG; this is terrible. I remember corresponding with Bob so much about Lubbock native Buddy Holly, of whom Bob was so proud.

              We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

                From the Facebook link Jeff posted.

                For all of Bob's friends, Bob passed away Tuesday, 11/6, in an airplane crash. If you would like to talk to me, I am Richard Glasscock, his brother.




                That's about as much of a confirmation as one could ask for. We've lost one of the good guys.

                  This is my first time using this format, so I apologize for any mistakes.
                  The news is as bad as the thread fears. My Brother, Robert or Bob, is gone. I am Richard Glasscock and a new member of SDC, I joined in anticipation of working on Bob's car with him and maybe getting a car myself. He was flying his airplane from Lubbock to Anadarko to visit our cousin there. A bad wind shift and not enough experience added up to disaster. The consolation I get is that he was doing something he loved. We are in Lubbock now at his house, trying to clear it out. I will take his Champion and finish it as he would want. The car is very important to me. I don't really know how to use this format yet, so if you want write me at 1rglasscock@gmail.com. Thank you all for being his friends, he took great pleasure in knowing you all. Richard

                    This saddens me very much. Even though I didn't know Bob, it was like he was a good friend, here on the forum. I hardley know what to say. R I P Bob.

                      Richard, I just emailed you, before seeing your post. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and yours.

                      Thanks for sharing Bob with us.

                      Several of us here, me included, could learn a lot from Bob about being a kind, decent person. I shall try to put what he taught me in that regard into practice.

                      I never, ever, saw him say a cross word to anyone here, even though he volunteered as a monitor on this site, and had to slap a wrist or two, from time to time.

                      He did so with grace.

                          Bob was a true friend here on the forums; he'll be missed by all of us. Richard, our thoughts are with you and your family.

                            Richard,

                            I am sorry to hear about the lost of your brother Bob. I don't know if we every met but we shared emails and forum posts from time to time. He and I talked about joining up for a caravan run to a National Meet some day. Your family is in our hearts and prayers.
